February Meeting Highlights

Sorry for the delay in getting these photos up!

Here are two baby quilts that Bev put together and quilted and bound with the fish blocks made by our members.  The quilting looks great and is a stitch that her Husqvarna machine does with her walking foot - very Effective.  Thanks for your hard work Bev!

Here are a few of the pieces from the workshop that Dawn led.  The pattern is Moonrise by Hollis Chatelaine.

I try my best to get good shots of everyone's projects, but sometimes that doesn't happen.  Use your imagination to see the really interesting fabric Dawn purchased from Spoonflower to make this cute purse.  She loves it and couldn't stay still when telling us all about it!

 Thankfully I did get a few better pictures of Dawn's latest original art quilt - "Waterhen Mermaid".  Dawn has a cabin located in Waterhen, Manitoba and this mermaid is surrounded by wonderful freshwater fish.  Stunning!

Karen and a simple but very effective quilt based on two easy blocks a snowball and a nine patch.

Cheri and her version of the Rock Candy pattern by Jaybird Quilts.  (Pattern and specialty rulers available in our library!)  Check out her fancy quilting!  Just beautiful Cheri!

Joan and her One: Leaf Series runner.  I love the echo quilting around the leaf.  Sometimes simple is the most effective.

Sandra's quilt made from the "Hello Luscious" fabric line.  So pretty.

And another finish by Sandra "Antique Rose" made from some fat quarters that were "ripening" in her stash.

Hiding behind this quilt is Bev.  I didn't get a close up of the quilting.  The crosshatching in the brown triangles was really a nice touch.

Gloria is hiding behind the next two quilts.  The first things we have seen come out of her studio since the arrival of her new longarm.  This one is from the guild stash of fabric.

Great work Gloria, can't wait to see more!
