February Meeting

We had a GREAT meeting this month in the newly remolded Gracie Lou's!

We are so excited to see all of our old friends along with a bunch of new ones!

You will see in the side bar, links to all of our members individual blogs and instagram accounts.  Be sure to check out all of our talented quilters!

We had lots of business and fun this month.

This month Pat dazzled us with all of her wonderful quilting helps that she rounded up at the dollar store!  Who knew the dollar store could be such a fantastic quilters supply stop!

Emily gathered  our charity blocks.  

We have enough blocks for nearly three quilt tops!

Next up was a splendid Sew N' Tell.

We started out with Emily and her son.

He has been working on this quilt for over a year.  (Yes, Emily became quite emotional)

He made it himself.

Ta Da!  We were all so impressed!

Here is Emily's scrap rainbow quilt.

It is even more beautiful in person.

Tiffany made this beauty for her sisters wedding.

This fun quilt is another charity quilt made by Tiffany.

....and Tiffany made a darling hexy Valentine Pillow.

Debbie worked her way through her stash and UFO's and made some fun baby quilts.

It is so wonderful to finish up projects!

Such sweet colors and design!

Katie is blasting her way through her stash with lots of tops this month.

This quilt was made with a layer cake and a pattern from the Moda Bake Shop.

Kristin made this fun farm quilt for her daughters friend that is leaving to serve a mission for her church.

This is a super awesome sampler that Kristen brought to share with us.

Krystal made a new bag to haul all of her goodies to church in!  It's HUGE and BEAUTIFUL!

Krystal also finished up a mystery quilt from the Peteetneet Quilt show a few years ago.

This is the mini quilt that Konda received from an IG swap.  It is FANTASTIC!

Aubree shared this SWEET top with us! So cute!

Kira made this AWESOME bag to haul all kinds of quilt supplies around.

Kira also made this darling pillow....

....and this SA-WEET table runner....

....and this COOL quilt!

For our main lesson, Marion spoke to us about different layouts for sampler quilts.

There is the traditional layout, with all of the blocks the same size, and uniform sashing.

A few of our guild members were involved in a Red & White Modern Block Swap last year.
Marion showed us how four of the ladies laid out their blocks.

Above is Stacy's top.  The grey is so fun!

This one is Katie's top.  The black adds such a cool dimension!

Konda and Marion chose very similar layouts.  Konda's top is above.  
Her flying geese are FANTASTIC!

Marion's is all finished. even had the label ;)
