Guild Meeting Show and Tell

Another wonderful guild meeting this month. These gals are so much fun to hang out with. Here's the show and tell from the meeting.

Jackie brought this pretty chevron quilt. I looooooooove the flip flop fabric! Fun!

She was also at my Folk Art Fusion play date. Instead of making a wall hanging, she made a pillow. LOVE IT! So cute with the polka dot fabric.

She brought a critter kiddo quilt

and a second one too!

The she showed us this embroidered quilt.

Hello little bug. So cute!

 Barbara was also at the play date and made her teapot into a pillow too. The rick rack around the edge is wonderful and

check out the fabric for the back. Great job Barbara!

Barbara and Jackie were over achievers this month. Here Barbara shows the "What's in your jar" quilt.

This quilt reminded me of those color blocked dresses I've been seeing in the fashion world. So hip and modern.

Speaking of clothes, Lolita showed us a jacket and skirt she made. Oh how I want to learn to make clothes. These were beautiful.

Carol showed her play date quilt. Clever lady used a clothes hanger to make a hanger and hung the teacups with earrings! Fun! Sending out congratulations to Carol as well for being selected to be on the board for NCQSI. This year quilt symposium will be in my favorite town, Wilmington!

Linda shared this totally cool gadget with us. It's made by Crayola and available in Walmart. It's a portable light tablet. This is perfect for taking to classes. It uses batteries. They are normally around $15, but it was on sale for $9. Sweet!

Charlene loves her men. Snowmen that is! Here she shares a recent finish.

Bonnie shared this beautiful commission quilt she made. It features gorgeous oriental fabrics. It was huge!

Kathie brought her project from our play date too. I love how looks with her dress. Kathie's profession was that of a silhouette artist (HOW COOL IS THAT!!). Needless to say, she was a pro at cutting out these intricate shapes from the wool. 

She also brought this churn dash quilt she finished.

Hope you enjoyed this show and tell. Have a super fun week. I'll see you back here on Wednesday for the next Fellowship of the Flowers project. I can't wait to show you!

I am literally feeling a tickling sensation of JOY as I scroll down to see the creativity here; that darling little quilt on a hanger with TEA CUPS! HAAAAAAAAA! I am always blessed to see the different pathways of the creative parts of the human brain. While one person creates with words, others create with paper, fabric, yarns...others create with music, and the FUN goes on. I am so happy that there are grown-ups who are engaged in such creativity, and these days, it's more of us adults who do more playing than the younger folks. Oh this is so wonderful my friend! Anita

How prolific are these creative ladies. I love how everyone looks like they are having so much fun!

(I am stunned by the light box - the equivalent here would cost approx $60!!!)
