January Meeting Recap

 We welcomed Nancy Turbitt as our guest speaker in January. Nancy's trunk show was a gorgeous explosion of color! Here she is with Nancy's Garden.

More eye candy from Nancy...

Please visit Nancy's blog (click here) to follow the progress on her Peter and the Wolf piece.

Nancy also brought a trunk show from SAQA - Studio Art Quilt Associates.

Barbara kicked off Show & Tell with her latest broderie perse applique quilt, complete with hand-knit picot trim. Her book on the subject is out of print, but several used copies are available on Amazon.

She also showed a new painted and appliqued piece with 3-D wings.

Cheryl made this fun quilt with a striking aqua background. She tried something new with the free motion quilting and traced around the flowers on the backing. Very clever!

Susan made this wonderful quilt for her brother. We never would have guessed that the fabric is striped!

Audrey made this sweet puppy quilt for a new grandbaby. She dug deep in her stash to use leftovers from past wedding and baby quilts, proving that you have to keep it all. I think Rita likes it!

Pat made a nifty wallet that was quite challenging. Nice job, Pat!

Although there are no pictures, quilters raved about the recent binding class with Pat Harrison. Ginny was excited to show off her perfectly mitered corners.
