October 2016 Meeting

Our speaker on October 11th was Adele Scott of Adele Scott Designs. 
Her presentation was titled 'My favorite tips, techniques and products'. 

Our members enjoyed looking at (and purchasing) fun new tools.

Adele presented several quilts that showcased the use of her favorite tools. 

Adele illustrated the use of several rulers designed to make precise angled cuts.
These rulers included 90, 60, and 45 degree options.

Adele reviewed her favorite tools to mark, cut, and pin quilts as well 
as tools designed for accurate piecing and free-motion quilting. 
After her demonstration, our members enjoyed selecting from
Adele's extensive selection of tools.
Thank you Adele!
