Quilt Circled May Meeting

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.

Thank you, as always,to Jackie O. for taking all these pictures.
