The November meeting was “Beyond the Quilt” a big show & tell of all the different things our members make in addition to quilts. Warning, this post will be very picture heavy!
Nicole brought us a super cute sew together bag she had made.
Erin brought in this cute self-binding blanket to show off.
Sheila showed us an Advent Calander, with popsicle sticks of activities to do instead of candy (so smart), a cute quilted hot water bottle holder, and a current WIP, a knit mermaid tail blanket.
Elizabeth Brought 4 knit apparel items she made using patterns purchased from CustomFit by Amy Herzog. Sign up, and you can buy a pattern written to your gauge, in your preferred yarn, and sized to your own measurements. That’s a cool find, Elizabeth, thanks for sharing!
Donna showed us a knit nativity set she made, complete with box!
Jen also brought this bag she made from an old coat!
Sonya showed us a brilliant stand up pencil case she made from Ikat bag.
Sonya also brought a collection of clothes pin people she’s been making with her daughter.
Patti S. brought us some of the rope bowls she’s been making. And a “hitchhiker scarf” she’s made. She also showed off her version of the noodle head open wide pouch and her beautiful cork bag.
Barbara made these beautiful seasonal door hangers and a watercolor wall hanging from Whims.
Lavonne brought a lot of things to show us! Multiple types of bags for kids and adults!
Lavonne also brought some water colors, cross-stitching, and Crocheting she has done.
Sherry showed us some soup bowl, kids tuggys, pot holders, and crochet scrubbers she’s made.
She also made this beautiful bag from a panel.
Tarra brought a hat and little cardigan she’d made using kool-aid dyed yarn!
She also showed off her handmade dress, and hunger games inspired shawl.
Now, here’s where it gets confusing. Tarra and Lisa both had so many beautiful bags to show off; I lost track of which bag belongs to whom! Hopefully, I can come back and edit who’s is who’s, but for now, we’ll just enjoy the beautiful bags.
I’m fairly sure these last 2 were from Lisa’s pile.
Lisa also brought a sewing mat she received from Sonya.
Phew, that’s a lot of beautiful “non-quilt” work! And now to show off some beautiful quilts and quilts-in-progress!

Show and Tell:
