December Meeting

Before I get to the Show and Tell photos a few things to remember.

  • We will be celebrating Christmas at the January 5th meeting.  There will be a fat quarter exchange.  Please bring a purple fat quarter wrapped in a brown paper bag.  If you bring a fat quarter you will leave with one.
  • The will also be a gift exchange and this year we are doing a pattern exchange. Please bring this wrapped for Christmas.  A favorite pattern from your stash or a new one will do!
  • Bring a small amount of snack/treats to share.  
If you are interested in a free weekly block program to celebrate Canada's 150th, check out the 150 Canadian Women Quilt. at  You just need to sign up for their newsletter.  There are a few options for the layout.  You will learn about 150 Canadian Pioneer Women and get 150 free block patterns.

Genny demonstrated this super cute present block.

We had some great Show and Tell!!

Bev has made these four lovely wallets for her four daughters for Christmas.

Amy quilted this top on the rental machine at Fabriculous in Swan River.

Amy proudly showing offer something she made for one of her Instagram swaps.

Amy has also jumped on the Dresden train.  They seem to be the cool thing right now. (Everything old is new again!)

And a quilt with the quilting partially complete that with be given away at Christmas.  I'm not sure how Amy has the energy to be so productive after being in her classroom all day!!!

Reneta loving her Dresden for a Instagram swap.

 Karen's Hunter Star Quilt.

 A couple of Seaside Runners (Jaybird quilt pattern).

Cheri's tree skirt from the pattern "Happy Holidays" by Atkinson Designs.  Cheri made this from her sister's fabrics for her niece.  Cheri's sister is no longer able to quilt because of her early onset Alzheimer's disease and has created something that will be treasured.

Cindy's log cabin quilt did not quilt get done in time for the quilt show.  Her elaborate quilting might have been part of the reason.

And Gloria finished her version of the Labyrinth quilt that has been very popular online lately.

If that bunch of Show and Tell wasn't enough, Sherry K treated us to a small sampling of her work.  The collection of quilts she brought certainly had a theme - Birds and Words.  Sherry loves birds.  She also loves bird fabric, and fabric with words.  Sherry also loves to put words on quilts.  Sherry's work is always a treat.  We even got to see some hand quilting from days gone by.  Enjoy a sampling from the show!
