We tried to bring our competitive spirits to the jelly roll race at our January meeting - but no one can remember who, if anyone, won. We do know it was a fun way to mix it up with old and new members as we made quilt tops for Camp Erin.
|Bloodthirsty crowds pushing and shoving to get just the right strips for their quilt tops...|
|It takes four people to sew a jelly roll strip: one to count, one to clip, |
and one to carefully balance the next strip on your shoulder.
And now for your show and tell:
|Sue's first finish (of many to come) in 2017 is this adorable baby quilt,|
made from the charm pack she received at SewBoston
|There's something especially nice about the quilts we make for |
ourselves - like this pleasingly-pink offset heart top from Taz
|Lisa's brother may have eloped, but he still got this |
beautiful wedding quilt to commemorate the day.
|Lisa's cheery Christmas quilt is all ready for next winter.|
|A pretty pink mini for Lisa's Instagram swap|

|Kim's 12 days of Christmas table runner with |
beautiful beading detail inspired by our November meeting
|Hildy's working on squares from this book|

|Sarah's firefighter/union quilt is full of subtle meaningful references - |

AND THE EARS FLAP WHEN YOU SHAKE IT
|Maritza's interesting and modern take on a log cabin|
|Christine has been working on these pouches made from mini-pieced quiltlettes|
