July 2017

 We enjoyed a lovely potluck dinner, which I failed to photograph. Here's show & tell!

Barbara Chojnacki answered the call to design a quilt based on the knitted Welcome Blanket. Her pattern can be made from two 5/8 yard cuts of fabric. You can find the patterns and more information about the Welcome Blanket project here. The deadline to donate blankets or quilts for refugees is September 5. The quilts will be displayed in a gallery exhibit in Chicago through the end of the year.

Barbara also challenged herself to create this quilt with five one-yard cuts.

 Erin made a fun snowflake pillow using this tutorial by Crazy Mom Quilts. Christmas in July?

 Ellie started this quilt with a free pattern by Tula Pink. She thought the center was OK, but needed more, so she added the great borders and applique.

Ellie also made this little wall hanging of beets. A reminder to eat your veggies?
