January Quilt Group Offerings

We met last night at the home of our newest member, Dorothy. I thought I would show you a bit of her work first. This Heron stitchery/applique/fiber art? wall hanging was so dramatic and striking!

This paper pieced quilt was stunning as well.

She was actually wearing some of her work, so we made her turn around so we could get a pic. So pretty!

Dorothy was almost done with this by the end of the meeting. See a close up below.

Don't you love this?!

Anita made this pillow top by actually weaving fabric tubes. It was really cool.

She also made this graphic baby quilt for a friend's new baby boy .

Darlene brought a few of her latest fabulous creations, starting with this gorgeous table topper.

She can do pretty much ANYTHING with her embroidery machine. Check out these cute hot pads.

Her daughter requested a Cinderella stocking, so she digitized a picture and created this darling stocking!

Margy made this beautiful medallion for her Table top.

She also made this fun mesh bag.

She showed us about 6 of these darling vintage looking redwork blocks that she has already finished.

I cant wait to see them all in a quilt!
Here we were last month at full strength. Since then, our much beloved Loralie has moved to Texas. We were willing to try laying down in their path to prevent them from leaving, but we had to accept the inevitable. We miss you, Lorali!! Thank you, visitors for being willing to take a peek at our "show and tell". I hope you will come again soon. Love, Derrith

The snowmen are wonderful. I am always attracted to quilts that have them on it.

Love all the quilts! you are a great group of go getters! The things you accomplish in a month is amazing to me, it would take me a year to do one of those quilts!
