March 27, 2016 Meeting

With our meeting falling on Easter Sunday, I wasn’t sure if anyone would show up at all. BUT, they did! The group was a bit smaller than usual but still a surprisingly good number! With most of us needing to get home for Easter dinners we kept the meeting short.

Members had some projects to show off!

Darla talked about the Sugar Block Club to which she has subscribed. It’s a block of the month series hosted by Amy of Stitchery Dickory Dock. Above is one of the blocks.

Bev brought some beautiful work in solids to show us! Above is her traveling quilt! The blocks were made by members using their choices from a bunch of solids supplied by Bev. We were to make improv trees. Bev has since added some of her own to finish the top. Don’t you love the little house in the forest?

There were lots of scraps of solids left over and so Bev whipped up the beauty below!

Lisa is working on an Easter backpack. Such cute bunny fabric. There are still some raw edges to stitch and some straps to add.

Dahlias hold special meaning to Sonya and so she is making this brilliant version of a Dahlia. Her process description was fascinating. She is always trying something new.

You can find the free pattern at Betukbandi. And here you will find the Jaya Paperless Method that Sonya used. Apparently it’s “super easy”! Sonya talked, too, about how she added the outside fabric. I don’t think I quite understood but it sounds brilliant and also “super easy”.

Donna made this sweet table runner and the yellow and grey quilt below.

While it’s hard to make out Sheila’s cross stitch design below, the photo looked so ethereal, I just had to share it anyway. Sheila is making this beautiful mandala cross-stitch as a gift for a friend. She advises that stitching on black is much more difficult than on white.

Nicole showed us this beautiful ombre fabric. She is combining it with these Tula hexies for what will surely be a gorgeous finish.
