March Meeting in Review

We celebrated World Wide Quilting day & St. Patrick's Day with a wonderful Show & Tell and Open Sew!  Many of our members worked on pillow cases for our chosen charity "Ryan's Cases".  We challenged all our members to make or donate fabric for at least one pillow case.  If we donate one for each member we will have 45 pillowcases.  Pillow cases are due in June.  Turn them into Jill Miskin.

Anna did a wonderful job sorting and returning our Tula Pink house block swap.  She even gave us our own house key with our blocks. Soooo Darling!

We also extended our "What does quilting mean to you" or "Why I Quilt" challenge to August.  Watch for details on this.

Jennifer Barclay baked us these wonderful Shamrock cookies for a St. Patrick's Day treat!
They were so yummy!

Here is a glimpse of our wonderful show-n-tell!

Diane Woodward is making this snuggle quilt for a kind soul who has been helping her daughter on her mission.

Brenda Stott made a cute sewing machine cover for her Singer Featherweight, a basket and a tool organizer from this vintage looking Singer fabric.

Jennifer Barclay with a fun Kaffe inspired quilt
and a Granny square with cute scrappy backing.
Jennifer Reid shared her Row Effect quilt progress with us.  You'll have to see it up close at the August meeting.
Peggy Watkins shared some really great blocks she has been working on.

Jill Miskin made this fantastic back pack from her wefty weaving last Fall.
Kristen Perschon shared her fun bright string block quilt.
Emily James shared a wonderful finish, (pictures don't do it justice)
Andrea Templeman shared a fantastic X-BLOCK quilt and a fun "use it up" back. (Again IRL was much better than pictures).
Amanda Bright is making her family a Thanksgiving Table Topper
Pam Helmandollar made this beautiful bed size quilt for her grandson and hand quilted it.  She also shared a tote and a pouch she made.

So there you have it, the March meeting in review!
