September

We had a full house this September and they had no clue what they were about to learn! Our hostess extraordinaire, Julia, taught this month’s program. I like to call it “Everything you Wanted to Know About Fabric But We’re Afraid to Ask”!! She really outdid herself with the slideshow presentation. Afterwards everything got heated as we burned fabric to determine fiber content. It was enlightening. Patrick made sure we had bowls of water and a fire extinguisher on hand just in case, safety first!! Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks Julia

Linda Duffy took home the block lotto this month. Lucky Linda! These are going to make one fantastic quilt !

Helen assembled the blocks we made for the Ocean Waves quilt and added a small navy border. It looks amazing. It then went to Sherre to work her quilting magic!

There was no shortage of show and tell either. So many beautiful quilts. Mary Jane had a few and she also brought in her prize winning button art!

Sherre did GE Designs Ukrainian quilt

And a few others

These were Sherre’s block lotto winnings from the previous month.
Two finishes from MaryEllen
Two from Elizabeth!
Carol showed us this super cute baby quilt!
And this one from Linda!
Rosemary’s completed Star Wars quilt
A baby quilt and two other finishes from Eileen
What Brooke made with her “ugly” fabric from the swap!
June shared this stunner with us that her son scored and talked about the importance of labeling your quilts. This one is from 1900, what a find!!

Looking forward to October, Kathy Cunningham founder of Team Shamrock, who has raised over $1.5 million dollars for Tunnel to Towers, will be stopping by to speak to us.

Happy Fall and happy sewing!
