We had a great meeting this month, with lots of new faces! We agreed that we are all interested in creating a charity quild quilt for Quiltcon 2018, and will explore our ideas next month on how to proceed. Remeber, the theme is “Modern Traditionalism”!
After a great show and tell, an amazing door prize donated by June, and a run through of our latest fabric donations, we discussed our upcoming June pool party/meeting, where Michelle will be running our first “ugly fabric” auction – as she reminded us, bring cash ladies! 🙂
Brandy gave a wonderful presentation for our “Back to Basics” series, on pressing our half square triangles and making design decisions as we move forward with the layout our final designs.
Here is Sherre’s beautiful Farmer’s Wife Quilt – it is destined for her bedroom, along with matching pillowcases and shams. And look at the border designs she added – love it. I think I need to dig out my book and start these up again!
This ombre shop sample by Sherre is just stunning – front and back. Check out all those thread changes!
Next up were two great quilts from Diane, first this uplifiting pink/purple and neutrals quilt, with wonderful dark thread quilting on top, and just as perfect pink thread on the back.
Patti claims this is her “first” modern quilt – pretty great first creation! Love the patterns she created in this quilt.
A great modern top from Kat – YES, batiks can be modern!
Can’t wait to see this cute polka dot number all quilted up!
Eileen finally made one of her amazing bags for herself! This one is a pool tote based on a pattern from Noodlehead Designs. Diane left us with some great half square triangle inspiration to finish off our show and tell!
