July Show & Tell

We met in July at Pat's poolside cabana -- lovely location, but the rainy weather caused us to huddle inside.

Everyone brought a yummy selection of appetizers and dessert!

 Sew-cializing before eating and business part of meeting.  Then on to show and tell.

Carolanne showed off her latest dress completion --- looks very comfy for the warm and muggy weather we have been having!

 Pat completed a really cute kid quilt with a wonderful wonderful rabbit panel.

 Your S&T scribe apologizes for not getting the member responsible for this striped quilt (which is also blurry!).  I did not turn on my mic until after this item was shown.

 Gail showed off the latest segment of her #mightlucky quilt-along that is based on rectangles cut in an arc and repieced on curved seam.

 Ophelia's Kaffe Fasset quilt with swirls and squares!

 Marie showed us a lovely quilted bag with a very pretty inside.

 Sara showed us her test run of a box pouch in preparation for pouch exchange next month.
