Sept 2015 Mtg

Thank you Caren for filling in and hosting for this month. Your home and garden are beautiful. We loved the gardening tips too. I failed to get pictures this month of the luncheon, but it was all very delicious! Our October meeting will be on Oct. 28th, but we still need someone to host it. Save the date for our Christmas quilt meeting on Dec. 9th at Sherry's. We will be exchanging wrapped gifts (under $20). For next year we are also planning on making some quilts for our local Syringa House for their auction in August. Something wonderful to look forward to! 
Here are our show and tells from the meeting:

Sherry made this quilt for her son who just got married. It's a pattern called Dottie from Moda using a jelly roll.

Jeanie started this quilt several years ago and decided to finally finish it. She put minky on the back.

Maurene showed a lonestar quilt she made 25 years ago.

Corrie showed some of the fun gifts she made for those who attended her retreat last month. On the left are numbered pins to use when sewing rows together. On the right is a cute little box. One of her yummy treats for the retreat was her home made carmels. She used Martha Stewart's Gingerbread Carmel recipe. They were a big hit.

Monica showed her completed feed sack bag that the group worked on together last month.

Nancy C. made this orange peel quilt and used fusible interfacing on the backs of the petals, turned them right side out and machine stitched them onto the blocks.

This is the back of the orange peel quilt.

Lynette made a take along ironing board using a fabric bolt board. She says she would use a heavier fabric next time.

Lynette also made these small aprons from Jolly pattern. The top is for a granddaughter and the bottom one is for a doll.

This is made from a charm pack using only triangles. Lynette is going to add borders to it.

Jeri has been spending time painting lately and brought one of her latest. We all agreed that the barn needs a quilt on the side.
