July Quilt Circle of Friends

We started our evening with our condolences to the family of circle member Sue Risius on the passing of her mother this week. Sue and all of her family are in our thoughts and prayers.

After a few updates and reminders, it was around the circle for show and tell.
Barb was relieved to have finished this sampler quilt.Very nice!

Nancy is making several of these quilts, using her father in laws old Hawaiian shirts.

Janet put together this quilt from a kit. Aren't the polka dots cute?

Janet also finished this stunning quilt. Isn't this spectacular?

A lovely baby quilt - - 

And Celia's table topper, ready for fall.

Another Mystery quilt is done, also Celia.

Next up is Margaret with a jewelry travel case her sister made for her above and a darling batik quilt below.

Deb has been busy using up donated fabric to make comfort quilts. Above are some blocks she is testing her own comfort level bein "scrappy".  Below are more scrappy strip sets.

Deb also shared these quilts, put together at a recent community sew day she sponsored. These quilts will be donated to domestic violence shelters.

Joyce is also getting ready for fall with a table topper above. Below is a table runner and place mats she made for a wedding gift.

Sold to the lady in the 2nd row!! Nancy picked up a lot of fun things at an auction recently including this stamped place mat and napkins set.

Our demo for the evening was this heart block. It may look difficult but it is really just hearts appliqued over a large pinwheel block.

As always, it was a great gathering with my Quilt Circle of Friends. Thanks to Deb Semmens for taking our pictures this month.
