The Thursday meeting this month was sponsored by the Calendar Girls Group. They did a demo on Needle Felting (Deb Hardman photos by Kate Beebe),

Mona Havlock demonstrated Roberta Horton's method of cutting out a paper pattern for folk art style applique's. There was much laughter with this group.

She also shared African American style of piecing free form, no rulers.
For Show & Tell, Harmony Moser showed a piece she started at the quilt retreat.

Here is the quilt she made for him (also note she made a dogie jacket for him).

I snuck up behind Pam Harris & got this shot of her pretty jacket.
Jetta Brewer-Huber is hiding behind this Falcon Star quilt that she pieced & Carol McConahy, a Fairbanks quilter quilted it for her.
Jetta also made these fabric Origami balls.
