October 2015 Meeting

Here are our pics from our last meeting at Darla's home. We had a great turn out. Thank you Darla for hosting and Marlene for helping with the delicious food! 
A quilt shop worth making a visit to according to a few of our members is in Cannon Beach, Oregon and it's called Center Diamond Fabric Store. 
Corrie shared her inspiration for her yummy breakfast tacos that she made at her quilt retreat. You can find the recipe on Layers of Happiness website.
We won't be meeting at all in November, but will have our annual potluck brunch at Sherry's on Wed. Dec. 9th at 10am. Bring some food to share, your show and tells and a wrapped gift that's under $20.
Here are the show and tells and lunch photos:

As a group, we made this quilt for Emily and her family in memory of her little baby boy who was only able to be here on earth for a short while.

After collecting lots of orange fabric, Rachel put it together with grey and white fabric to make this quilt called Flimsy Limeade. She got the pattern from a magazine.
