Materials Girls quilt group meeting Wednesday, October 28, held at Jan Leifson's home. Red and Cream friendship blocks for Linda Ingram were turned in. Thirteen members were in attendance. Before the meeting began, we went downstairs at Jan's to find a built in playhouse for the children. Seeing the rooms was a delight.
Sew and Tell Items: Nancy F. showed a remarkable sewing machine cover, Nancy Christensen had a pretty quilt top made from a kit of the Quilt Soup pattern "Ciopinno, Diane S. brought a clothespin holder that was made of fabrics by Red Rooster, a kindle holder made of patchwork squares, and a reversible apron made from a pattern in the book Simple Sewing by Lotta Jansdotter. An original embroidery design was created and stitched on the solid side of the apron by her daughter, Amber. Kathi T. showed her completed quilt that was made of blocks from the friendship swap. It is darling. The pattern is a Threadbare Creations original. Susan T. showed a small patchwork jack-o-lantern quilt, 2 Birdie Bags made from the Amy Butler pattern, a very pretty pieced-flowers quilt top and a table topper made of wool. The Robb-n-Graves Designs pattern is called Bone Appe'tit. Very cute. Rachel showed several holiday table toppers and wall quilts. She has been sewing up the Scnibbles patterns, showed three very cute skirts, (with lining!) and a nice quilt top made of Amy Butler fabrics. It is a fat quarter quilt called "Slide Show". Jeanie F. showed a very cute snowman/Christmas stitchery, her "Seeds" stitcheries completed in a quilt, the completed penny rug, and a small Bullseye Quilt made of 30s fabrics in yellow, green and lavender. Maurene completed her baseball quilt. It is done in very pretty dusty blue fabrics. She also brought a very nice Christmas panel done up as a wall quilt by Linda Blakeslee, Maurene's daughter. Jerri has been sewing hexagons! She showed a lovely quilt made from a McCalls magazine pattern. She had enough leftover hexagons to made a very novel table topper! Jan L. continues to amaze us all with her ability to get a lot done, she showed a green and purple wall quilt done in the Card Trick pattern, a striking paper pieced star quilt done in the Primary colors and a gorgeous Maple Leaf quilt of Batiks!
Thank You everyone for sewing, showing and sharing your talent.
