January 5 Show and Tell

The quilts above were completed by guild members for our Comfort Quilts service project.
During our business meeting, Glenda explained the next steps for adding a border to the Round Robin quilt challenge in which some members are participating. This step will be included in the next newsletter. Glenda showed some of the Round Robins which she has been making.

During Show and Tell after the business meeting and birthday cake, we saw that several guild members have been very busy.

Barbara made this Teddy Bear quilt from left-over fabrics.
Gail's cute Paddington Bear will go to a new home with its own special quilt as part of the Teddy Bear Quilt service project.

Glenda tried a technique she saw on the Missouri Star Quilts web site.

Since Glenda still had orange fabric left from the butterfly quilt, she made another one for this tiger. The quilt and tiger will go to the Teddy Bear Quilt service project.
Pat created this quilt from block patterns purchased at a local quilt shop's Buck a Block promotion. She is donating it to Comfort Quilts.
Ruthe was especially busy lately, finishing a number of UFO's to clean out her quilt stash.

Shirley made several pretty wall-hangings and repurposed some blocks.

Shirley added appliqué to this tea towel.

Joan made this Christmas quilt from rescued quilt blocks.
