July 2016 Meeting

 Clamshell Quilters displayed their beautiful raffle quilt and sold tickets at the meeting. 
We hope Ninigret members will support our friends and neighbors and attend this lovely 
show on August 6-7. Details can be found on the Clamshell website

 Members enjoyed a delicious potluck meal and wonderful company.

Show & Tell
 Margaret made a cute Beach Dog quilt for her niece.

 When Tora S went looking for a Japanese stencil to illustrate a 
dyeing technique discussed last month, she found this beautiful hand pieced 
and appliqued eagle quilt top. It has been finished 
as a summer spread (no batting or quilting) for a bed at Mystic Seaport.

 Fran was inspired by our recent guest Susan Sato and completed this 
handwork piece with Japanese sashiko.

 After realizing she hadn't actually finished anything in a while, Tina quilted and bound this Burgoyne Surrounded quilt that started as a retreat mystery.

 Sheila whipped up a couple of mug mats for friends she will be visiting while on vacation.

Sheila also stitched a sweet quilt for her granddaughter's big girl bed 
which she has named Frozen in Summer. The machine quilting, 
done by Pat Harrison, looks like bubbles or swirling snow.

Thank you to Tina for photography and comments.
Keep on Quilting!
