March Show n' Tell

No matter how much snow we seem to get, everyone seems to be busy sewing. 

We had a great turn out and lots of show n' tell.

Debbie demonstrated how to use the Hex N More ruler by Jaybird quilts.

Marie demonstrated the new BOM, lets see how many of us will try this one!

Hannah brought her little bundle of joy. It's hard to believe she is 3 months old already.
Having a baby didn't slow her down though, she managed to quilt a little wall hanging.

Patty created this beautiful quilt using the quick curve ruler

She also made this cute sewing bag

Patty's version of Feb. BOM

Alexandra made this cute bag with an extra long strap

This was Beth's first time with us and she brought this quilt. This was her very first attempt at long arm quilting. Nice job Beth!

Nancy created this number quilt as a challenge. 

Jessie made and quilted this colorful quilt.

She also made this quilt using 2" scraps

Sandi made this black and white quilt

Sandi also made this heavy duty bag to take her quilting supplies to retreats
