March 2016

Great meeting this month at Julia's! Thank you Julia for hosting. After show and tell Julia showed several tutorials from the Missouri Star Quilting Co - Lots of great ideas and tons of tutorials. Also here is a list of items we still need to collect for our homeless men project:
black socks
body wash
disposable razors
winter beanies
winter gloves
Let Susan know whenever you find a good deal and purchase any of these items. She'll let us know when an item is no longer needed.
Also Cindy brought a visitor to the meeting who is a quilter, Jean. Welcome to the group Jean! Our next meeting will be at Nancy C's home on April 27th.
Here are some pics from the show and tell:

Cindy made this plaid owl from a free pattern on Pinterest. Here's a link to the pattern at
Corrie made this Red Riding Hood doll and even labeled it with a personal tag on the side.

Julia made this large orange peel quilt using a method she learned from the Missouri Star Quilt Co. tutorials. This was one of the tutorials we watched.

Nancy F made this "nightmare" Amy Butler apron. She said the directions were extremely difficult to follow.

Susan finished her wool Birdie year quilt. She used flannel on the back and on the borders and for the binding.

Diane S made this T-shirt quilt for her son who is currently serving a mission for the church. She said she worked on this with her daughter and it was definitely a two-person project.

Jeri showed her completed red, white and black vintage baby quilt.
