This could be fun!

For those of you ready to try something a little fun/challenging with you free motion quilting I came across this neat idea over at the Inbox Jaunt Blog. (

 Lori Kennedy quilts on a domestic machine and is very generous with tutorials.  She just announced her 2nd Annual Machine Quilt-a-Long Mystery Sampler.   The final project will be 16" x 21" in size so it doesn't require a huge investment in materials, but I think you stand to have a lot of fun and learn something new.  The first instructions are up and it will have a nautical theme, I hope some of you will check it out.

March Meeting & Mini Trunk Show

We had some really lovely Show and Tell at our February meeting!

Brenda complete her modified version of Alternate Routes.  Most people complain about how much piecing the original is, but Brenda did more piecing to break up what she felt was too much black for her.  It is awesome.
Another one from Brenda.  Orion Star using "Thangles".

Cheri's cute Hazel Hedgehog quilt for her grandson.  All those little pieces were worth it!

Reneta's Fancy Fox quilt.  All the oranges and brown were from her stash.

Never one to let something go to waste - a pillow from the leftovers.

Sandra made a table runner and place mats from 6 fat quarters using this tutorial.

Sandra also finished her cat quilt.

This is my Detour runner.

Darlene made this darling quilt with vehicle fabric.

Gloria's leaf row quilt. This picture does not do it justice at all!

We were treated to a mini trunk show by Cheri.  This is first quilt she made for her daughter.

This log cabin had some 3-D folded sections.

From her hand quilting phase.

This quilting has a touching story about 'home".

Cheri's "Sherbet" quilt.

This top was made years ago, but recently finished on a longarm rental at Fabriculous.  Awesome Cheri.  Thank for sharing.
