And now, for show and tell:

Heather started us off with this intricately paper-pieced pillowcase, a 2 year project!

And another beautiful paper-pieced pillowcase

Laurie was next with this colorful stained glass

We loved this log cabin meets paper-piecing top

And this fabulous denim top for the Alternative Material Challenge
Many of us have admired the early stages of Carolyn's stylish  trench coat -
it involves miles of piping, but the contrast is what makes it!
Allison showed off her Sew Boston Swap loot from Carolyn

This is one of the three pretty blocks from a Jessee Maloney pattern Allison is testing.

and this spectacular tribute to Donkey Kong!

Taz got to practice perfect curves on this happy baby quilt.
Kim made these cool variations on a theme.
Julie showed off her finally-finished cat quilt.

Her ornament quilt...
.... and the crazy quilting visible on the faux fur back.
Rebecca made this pretty patchwork.
Fantastic color play on Kristen's quilt

Julie finished this stunning applique over a pieced top.

This striking hand quilting/embroidery is also by Julie.
Reva turned her tiny piecing from Chawne Kimber's workshop into this eye-catching mini-quilt.
Felicity used this lovely top to practice her free motion quilting...
which looked amazing!
Maritza shared this vibrant and inspiring Nasty Hillary quilt.
Trish calls this dazzling version of Amy Garrow's Icy Waters, Stormy Waters.
We're looking forward to seeing you all at our November meeting!
