October Meeting Recap

Happy Veteran's Day, CMQGers! Our October meeting was filled with Triangle Challenge finishes and more great show and tell. There's a lot to report - we're heading to the Watertown Public Library's Makers' Space for a sew-in on Sunday, December 3rd, from 3-6. That event is open to the public, so join us! Also, lottery blocks and charity drive contributions are due at the November meeting.

AND don't forget that CMQG membership must be renewed by November 26th when we'll open up any open spots to our sizable wait list. Our annual Retreat (Quilt Camp) registration is open too - we'll be heading to Kennebunkport for two or three nights the weekend of March 9-11, and you can opt for a single or double. Get in touch to reserve your spot.

On to the Triangle Challengers - we had some amazing and innovative entries:
Flying geese make up 100% of Jen's innovative quilt.

Jean's quilt is also 100% half-square triangles - the ombre fabric
from Hunter Design gives it some drama and depth!

This pic is not doing Julie R's monochromatic strip, destined for a much larger quilt.

Stephanie's triangle quilt will be perfect for a baby, and the striped triangles are pieced too!

Carolyn awesome design is also 100% triangles, we love the red square!

Rebecca's staggered flying geese remind us of a city on a hill.

Allison drafted these 3D triangles. She always picks
the perfect quilting to highlight a design!

Julie's flying geese were ascending into chaos!

Hildy's blue geese were in perfect formation,
the negative space filled by half-square triangles

Hildy also did this cool stripey triangle top.

Gwen's half-square triangles also perfectly capture the ombre effect.

We love the way Maritza designed her flying gees top.

We also had some show and tell beauties:

This was Rachel's first time sharing a quilt with us - this sweet animal quilt came out lovely.

Rachel made this baby quilt for another lucky Rachel
and tried out some free motion quilted flowers.

We had to include Rachel's expression while explaining this sweet 3D
bunny quilt that she started at age 13!

Felicity chose the perfect background for the bunting on this quilt
that was made exclusively from fabrics she had in her stash.

Heather's lovely leaf from a workshop she attended.

I wish I'd gotten a better shot of the detail on this
hand appliqued an quilted piece, with a faux piped binding.

Heather's adorable ugly sweater blocks

Jean made this wonderful quilt for her late aunt, and it was 2nd place ribbon in
the Rising Star Quilt Guild quilt show a few weeks back.

Jean made this crimson top for a niece at Harvard using Carolyn Friedlander's totem pole pattern.

This jelly roll top of Jean's is for another kid who is off to college.

Allison was inspired to design this cool pattern after noticing a church arch that looked like DNA. 

Sometimes a simple patchwork is the best way to show off beautiful fabrics.
The recipient of Regina's hand-quilted baby quilt sure is lucky.

Jane made the cutest Halloween cat quiltlette. The eyes were super-sparkly.

Jane also finished this beautiful quilt she started three years ago!

Love the lighting effect in this quilt by Rebecca.
It was made using only two fabrics, both ombre.
And that's a wrap! See you at the end of November.
