BLOCK OF THE MONTH

Here's Mary's Flying Geese block.  She shared time-saving tips on how to construct flying geese blocks.  Go here for more information on the technique she used.


SHOW & TELL

Mary's Cathedral Window Chuppah

Christine's adult bib made from a t-shirt, modeled by Miss Mary.
Very fun and clever Christine!

Christine's pin cushions/paper weights/sachets.

Stephanie designed this quilt and used the Noteworthy fabric line.

Stephanie's queen-size quilt made with a pattern from The Quilting Squares Quilt Shop.

Jane (a first time visitor with some serious skills) shared some of her work with us.  She enjoys dying her own fabrics and prefers improvisational piecing.

Another one of Jane's improv quilts.  Nice work Jane!

On this quilt Jane used 'normal' fabric and 'normal' techniques.

Jenny wowed us all with this block.  It was her interpretation of July's BOM.

Then Jenny continued to wow us with this going away gift for Mary, who will be leaving in September to spend a year in England.  She used fabrics from five different local quilt shops.  We thought Jenny was done, but then she proceeded to tell us how 'rude' it would be to hang a U.S. flag in your English bedroom and surprised us all with...

...a Union Jack flag on the back.  This has got to be one of the most thoughtful gifts ever given.

 Show and tell just kept getting more and more exciting.  Lindsay shared with us 'thee' pillow of her pillow pattern that was published in the Fall 2013 issue of Stitch magazine.




Then to top it all off, we got to see the advance copy of Lindsay's book Modern Bee, and some of the quilts that appear in the book.  Her book should be available in October 2013.  
Congratulations Lindsay!
