It was another great gathering of friends, Quilt Circle of Friends that is.
|Lonnie brought this purse she made from All Iowa Shop Hop fabric to donate to our June porch sale.|
|Deb shared this Strip Club quilt she is working on.|
|She also showed us the pig block she has completed. This is part of a challenge we have been working on. There should be several of these "animal block" quilts on display at our Little Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show in June.|
Trish made this cute pin cushion to donate to the June sale.
|and here is her animal quilt. Really cute. The challenge was to use the 5 different animal blocks and make something - - -anything.|
|Here is a close up.|
|Margaret brought the potholders above and table topper below, both to donate to our June porch sale.|
|Margaret also shared this gorgeous batik quilt.|
|Lorna showed this pumpkin table topper she just finished up and below is the quilt she made from the Comfort Blocks the Quilt Circle friends made when her husband passed a few months ago.|
|Abbie showed us this quilt she finished for a Monster High loving granddaughter. She couldn't find Monster High fabric so she cut these pieces out of a sheet set. Next is a couple close-ups.|
|This will be one happy little girl.|
|Abbie also shared some projects she started in an art class at the Machine Quilter's Expo. First, a creative expression in drafting for thread play - -|
|then design transfer.|
and fabric painting.
|and hula hoop weaving!|
|Sue shared her t-shirt quilts - above and below|
|Sue also shared this cool strip quilt.|
|This is the quilt top I put together from blocks made at our Spring Quilt Retreat. This is Scrappy Trips, a Bonnie Hunter pattern taught to us by JoAnne Schnebley. It will be a Quilt of Valor.|
|I demoed one block of Scrappy Trips, using just red and white fabrics. I hope to have some more blocks made to share at our June meeting.|
|I also shared this little shop sample quilt, forest animals with doll clothes. Then we closed our evening with a cupcake.|
|Look at all these happy faces. We always have a good time together at Quilt Circle of Friends.|
