Susan also updated us on our Blessing Bags collection we are doing this year for homeless men in our area. We no longer need bandaids, Qtips, toothbrushes, toothpaste or denim for the bags. We are hoping to have all the supplies gathered by October this year so we can make the bags and get them ready to give away.
Here's the show and tell:
Rachel used Hello Darling fabric to make this star quilt. She used a jelly roll and got the pattern from the book Scrap Basket Sensations by Kim Brackett. The pattern is called Nova. She added a flying geese border.
Sherry decided to re-do and update all the Christmas stockings for her family. She embroidered the names by hand and intends to make extra for future family too.
Jeri made this Vintage Baby Quilt pattern quilt. She used a disappearing marker to mark the grid on the background fabric. She said that worked well but sometimes tended to disappear earlier than she wanted. It was recommended to use Frixion pens on the white fabric from now on.
Corrie made this crocheted bear rattle.
Kelly made this scrappy 1/2 triangle tulips table runner
Corrie designed and made this iron cozy for her small travel iron. She said "this is is big deal" and obviously very badly needed. It is lined with heat resistant material, teflon and also used insulbrite for more protection against the heat. She used Little Red Riding Hood fabric.
Kelly made this wool tulips in a bowl.
Kelly also made this scrappy 1/2 triangle quilt.
Julia made this star quilt using a tutorial from Missouri Star Company. She used bandana floral fabrics.
Lynette made this stained glass quilt to give away for a humanitarian/charity.
Caren hand quilted this Lone Star quilt. It is a wedding quilt.
