Scrap Quilting Club Meeting Nov. 29, 1014

I'm sneaking in...

I know it's been a long time since my last post.  I've been very busy with work, traveling, line dancing, and of course, quilting.

Today my Scrap Quilting Club met so I decided to share some photos.  We had our annual potluck before we take our holiday break.  The next session will start in January.

First up, I offered a t-shirt cutting class and a few of them participated in the cutting and some others were spectators and will try the technique at home.

I handed out official Scrap Quilting Club t-shirts and of course we had to take photos!

And here is Show-N-Tell!

My current projects which all need to be quilted.  The ABC and Footprints in the Sand tops are gifts; the other is a fabric and ruler challenge.

The following quilts are from the members:

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I'll post again soon!

Design Wall Monday

Here are some blocks I finished on Sunday.  I started this project the day after Thanksgiving while visiting my grandmother in Alabama; during that weekend I made seven blocks (stacked in the upper right corner).  I forgot about them when I got back home.  I took them out yesterday and finished  the remaining five.  I now have twelves blocks ready to be pieced into a quilt top.

To see more design walls, visit Patchwork Times.

SQC March 2014 Show-n-Tell

March is national crafting month and included in that is national quilt day.  I was contacted by a lady who is moving to Alabama in June and is looking for an activity to utilize her time.  Her mom used to quilt a very long time ago and she wants to make a photo memory quilt.  I had her meet me at SQC and decided to start with the basics.  She was able to make 4-patches and HSTs and I showed various setting options with just those two shapes.  She is excited about quilting!  That's my big accomplishment this month, gaining another quilting enthusiast.

The completed project prize was won by Jennifer.  She won a Hoffman Fabrics batik charm squares.

The project show at the meeting are as follows:

Part of the problem of being the organizer is that I forget to have someone take photos of my projects.  Here is my January project, Zigzag.

I also made another one from a slightly different technique.  I love when each fabric row is a different fabric as opposed to the one that uses a background fabric for the alternating rows. Both techniques are stunning.

This is my February's project results.  I'll put it aside until I know who I'm giving it to; may need to make it larger.

Joan showed her batik project she made in another class.
 LeeEtta has been busy again.  These are antique blocks that belonged to her mother.
 Wow!  LeeEtta's squares quilt grew larger this month.

 Connie has her January project quilted and bound.  She's a good role model.
 In addition, Connie also has February's project completed.
 She still had some "free time" so she made this tumbler stain glass table runner.  It's so cute.
 Judy made a bird quilt inspired from a fat quarter.
Laura was quilting this charity fund raiser quilter for she children's school.
 Judi has her zigzag top completed.
