July Meeting Recap

Hi ladies!  I am making sure to get this up before our August meeting.

We had a fun, warm, meeting this month.  Diane did an amazing de-stash and I think we all left with a few goodies.  I didn't even make it to my seat before I slipped an amazing pink fabric into my bag (the same one Diane used in her show and tell).

We are still working on getting the guild set up with the Mama guild.

Show and Tell

 Diane made this awesome pink quilt using the one block wonder technique.  (Totally in love with this pink fabric!)
She also showed off her firework blocks which is her block for this month.  

 Rose showed us her triangle quilt that she is working on, this will be a full size when completed.


Kat shared with us these two quilts.  Her quilts are slways so intricate and interesting.  The maze looks great, I wonder what other colors that would work with.  (Maybe greens?)

Mary shared with us her quilt she made with cashmere sweaters that she had collected.  This quilt was so soft and warm, the perfect quilt to snuggle under and read a book.  She quilted each block separately in it.  

Carolyn shared with us a quilt top that was from a pattern she ested for Melissa at Sew Bittersweet Designs.  SHe also brought the scrappy log cabin block quilt top that she pieced together.  This is one of the guild's group quilts.  

Natalie shared with us her new dress that she made herself.  So pretty with socking on the back.  

Bonnie shared with us the add for the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza in which her quilt is pictured.   Way to go Bonnie!
Jackie shared her Tula Pink quilt that she made for a friend.  She pieced it free form using all pieced of Tula Pink's prince charming line.  

And this beautiful quilt was completed after sitting for years.  Love how the paper pieced hearts have different colors zigzagging through it.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, August 14th.  Hope to see you all there.
