July Meeting Recap

The highlight of our July meeting was the unveiling of our QuiltCon 2018 CMQG quilt design! I'd love to show it to you, but then I'd have to kill you it's a guild secret for now. We certainly got a head start with fabric cutting and division of labor at our July meeting. A big congratulations and thank you to Charlotte Howard who came up with the winning design - in addition to being beautiful, it's also easy to divide up and will come together reasonably quickly!

So here's your show and tell:

Heather shared this lively masterpiece she made using the Sister Sampler Quilts book.

Hilde shared this baby quilt that made us reconsider
 the straight border we've always taken for granted!

Hilde also demonstrated her DIY design board, made from a cardboard box!

Rebecca described this as her "simple scrap quilt," simply lovely!

Christine made this cat lovers quilt for some lucky couple

How sweet is this back?

We love the fantastic fabric choices Rachel made for this baby quilt

Chris started this colorful beauty made from a fat 8th set at retreat - 

Carolyn's bright and beautiful baby quilt, made with science fabrics.

And some of her rainbow project samplers - can't wait to see these come together!

Gwen's charity quilt, for some lucky dog lover to curl up under.

Gwen's cool superman quilt for a soon-to-be-very-happy grand nephew
Gwen's insomnia quilt makes us want to stay up and quilt late into the night!

Laurie is finally done quilting this impressive paper-pieced elephant for her dad

Jessica's beautiful top, hand quilting in progress.... here are some close-ups:

Allison sewed this awesome Noodlehead Market Bag
And because today (especially) should end with something inspiring,  these two, from Sue:

We'll see you at the meeting next Sunday, August 27th.
