It's been a big week or so let's wrap it up:
I returned Wednesday after a nice visit with these two in Texas
Next up was Open Sew at the Adel Library.
And the next day was Sisters of the Cloth!
One of the just-for-fun things we did in Sisters of the Cloth was to build a Mystery Quilt Block. Here are some of the blocks at step 2. In class Saturday, they received the instructions for step 3, the last part of this block. Now they know it's a Snails Trail.
We also wrapped up our instruction on our Grandmother's Dancing Flower blocks with patterns and kits for this quilt.
|These kits, originally saved for SOC members, are now available to all.|
Next up was our speaker, Sue Kluber. A fantastic fiber artist, it was a treat to listen to her and to see her trunk show.
And, of course, Show and Share
Kathy's holiday tree.
Margaret's red and white quilt, made by her grandmother and hand quilted by Margaret.
Jenny saw these pretty shavings in her sewing trash and decided to rescue them for an ornament.
|Suzanne shared this special quilt, made for her by her grandma. Several years ago, Suzanne went through breast cancer and wrapped up in this quilt after treatments. What could feel better!|
|Suzanne's mother was a guest, all the way from Texas. She shared this pretty red and white quilt. Each block is a quilting cartoon. Cute.|
|Kris shared the Grandmother Blocks she has made and shared her idea to make one into a Sun with rays and place it in the upper corner of her quilt.|
I always enjoy seeing guests working on handwork while we present the program. You know what they say about idle hands. We provide fabric, templates and supplies to make Grandmother's Flower blocks but some bring their own stitching to do.
