Everyone has been busy during the cold weather, and several members were preparing for QuiltCon in Nashville!
Carolanne showed us her butterfly pillowcase from extra blocks with a quilt ....
and pillow in same blue colorway!
Betsy finished her Gypsy Wife quilt with her daughter -- it is absolutely gorgeous and very colorful!
Alison done at retreat. Ophelia did quilting and also help from Leslie.
Lorie made up this quilt from donated fabric for a charity quilt. Pattern from Moda Bake Shop and blew up the sizing.
Lorie had a second quilt fully bound she had shown before. Sarah did the quilting and Leslie bound it. Will be raffled off for ABLE NH.
Ophelia started with the backing and then designed the front. She did two and quilted both in sequence, and are donated to charity. Great colors and design!
Carolyn showed us a very modern and colorful quilt oriented to a toddler. So cute!
Carolyn also showed us a tote bag she made!
Patti finished a super cute Range back-pack (pattern by Noodlehead) to take to Nashville QuiltCon!
Patti also showed us a jellyroll based WIP.
Suzie has a new bright Range back pack to carry goodies from QuiltCon! (She actually made 5 of them!)
Suzie showed off the mini-quilt swap she made for QuiltCon -- the theme is pretty obvious!
Suzie made up a pattern designed by fellow guild member Marie, called Nordic Sweater.
This is Marie's mini-swap quilt for Quilt Con. Pretty colors.
Chelsea showed us a beautiful scrap quilt.
Chelsea also showed a super large cross quilt.
Sarah had several quilts. This is a baby quilt for a friend, and made a second for the other kid. All out of scraps.
Briana showed a quilt she started at the last retreat.
Rene shared with us the mini-quilt with nice bright colors she received from her partner in Sweden. The binding is "X"d down by hand with an ombre thread.
René also showed a quilt she made from a kit. Each block has 103 pieces! Wow! She also practiced her free motion quilting. She donated it to charity.
Simone announced she is going to be a grandmother!
Gail showed her trial run mini-swap quilt using Alison Glass's Meridian pattern using Alison Glass fabrics.
This is Gail's actual mini-quilt for her swap mate in Mississippi. The theme was Mississippi Blues using the Alison Glass handcrafted fabric.
This is the back where Gail tried out reverse machine applique using Anna Maria Horner's method.
