Sept 2011

Our meeting this month was at Jeri's home. We had withdrawals from our pizza box exchange. It felt odd not bringing our boxes with us. Jeanie brought hers for comfort though. :) Not only did we have our regular show and tell, but we also brought some quilts that would give ideas for possible settings for our pizza box squares. We needed to see some of these as they were very inspiring. We also each brought a piece of "ugly" fabric in a brown paper bag. Each of us picked up a bag to take home and we will have 2 months to make something beautiful out of someone else's "ugly" fabric. For our Christmas meeting, we will wrap up what we made from the "ugly" fabric and it will be the present for the original owner of the "ugly" fabric. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
Thank you Jeri for a wonderful morning!!
