December was our Christmas exchange and party. Lots of good food and comraderie.
Betsy showed us this cheerful Christmas quilt using a large panel! She was able to focus on practicing her quilting skills.
Carolanne made this fancy dress for our Christmas party to meet a challenge!
Carolanne also showed us a quilt and pillowcase she made for her niece, using two butterfly squares that were "messed up."
Quilt has six butterflies to allow her niece to grown into it -- wonderful quilt!
Michelle showed us a beautiful quilt will be bound and gifted for a person who supports her family.
Michelle's two color challenge quilt, using value and color, was not accepted for Quiltcon but is wonderful!
Michelle had two quilts accepted to QuiltCon 2019 in Nashville, one of which we have seen at earlier meetings. She showed us the other, which was accepted in the small quilt category, to recognize her wonderful son with a bonus 21st chromosome.
Suzie showed us potholders ...
And Suzie did this pieced quilt for her day-care boy. Really fun!
Chelsea showed us a massive half-square triangle that will be a gift. She quilted it on her domestic machine. Wonderful colors!
Sarah completed a Christmas tree skirt square in a square format -- really cute! And she told us about her dog's love for chewing quilts!
Susan displayed a jewel colored quilt -- very pretty!
Ophelia did an argyle Krista Moser design
. Very optical and geometric. She also did a Christmas colored quilt that should hopefully be good year around.
Laurie showed us nautically colored quilt. She has owned the pattern for over twenty years! Made four blocks with the really cute boats on the back.
This quilt top has an applique mermaid on jelly roll piecing, which needs to be quilted and sent off! Beautiful! Great color gradation.
In this quilt Laurie uses a yellow brick road pattern, very easy.
Laurie's last quilt is going to a family with a son entering the Navy Seals. Beautiful colors using the Tennessee Waltz pattern.
Sandy shows off her latest finish. This was all made several years ago, but finally took on the challenge of binding the irregular border!
That's it! Great meeting with a lot of good food and gift exchange!
