November sit and sew

We had a very low-key meeting this month, enjoying being together, doing some handwork and sharing what we've been up to since the quilt show.  Several of us have been cleaning up the sewing room, and finding projects long neglected!  And it was nice to get an up close and personal look at some of the projects that were finished just in time for the show. 

Cynda is using her ice dyed fabrics to make hexies and is now addicted!

Some of the newer fabric Cynda dyed

We all saw a face in this one

Mary Ellen found these in her sewing room

It didn't make the show, but the Jacobean quilt is finished

Hand quilted- with exceptional skill!

A mistake made this piece better than planned!

Having to reprint allowed Mary Ellen to add all this great texture.

Emmy dug out her old stitch sampler in an effort to improve her machine quilting skills

Emmy's completed wool felt piece.

Another piece Emmy finished for the show
Emmy made  new topper for the Guild's tree at the HLOM

An old project Mary Lee finally finished in time to hang for the holiday

Lots of great texture stitching.

Mary"s "fish" are mermaids!

Tiny stars pieced from that lame!

Martha updated her "Instant Art Quilt"- an old group project

Martha's modern quilt- finished too late for the show.
Our next meeting will be at the Library.  Nothing on the agenda as of today.
