Meeting Recap: August 2015

We had another great turnout at our Guild meeting Monday night. We started the night off with a presentation from The Anna's House Foundation. A big thank you to Darcy, who spoke about the needs and goals of this wonderful foundation. We even had a few more quilts to give her! Keep your eyes and ears open as we discuss additional quilt opportunities for Anna's House.

A few members created a "Klee's Trees" small group. They met during the week and each created their own versions of this great pattern found over at A Stitch in Dye.

I believe Agnes started the craze with this table topper.

Agnes then went on to make a larger, hand-quilted version 

This one was made by Ellen M... well as this one. 

Debbie shared her big version...It's amazing how different they all are!

 Ann changed it up even more with her quilt. The front...(quilting by our own Beth)

...and the back of Ann's quilt. Amazing!

Beautiful work ladies!

This adorable table topper was made by Karen. Look as all those slices of luscious free-motion quilting!

Another quilt by Karen.

You can't see them, but Beth had some help from her two daughters quilting this one...

and this one. Both quilts are being donated. Good job, girls!

Beth is a professional long-arm quilter and she quilted this king-sized quilt for a friend.

What's not to love about this quilt made by Chanda? It's a baby quilt for a teacher and we give it an A+.

Emily just moved up from Austin and we're so glad to have her. This quilt is made from antique sheets that she's been collecting.

Another new member, Jazmin, just moved here from Hawaii! Yes, we all gasped and asked her why :) This quilt has some amazing piecing and she's taught classes using this pattern.

Another amazing quilt by Jazmin.

Jana is another one of our professional long-arm quilters and it's always fun to see what she's been working on for clients. I love her straight line quilting in this one!

I'm starting to feel left out of the "Sew Together Bag" craze. This vibrant version was made by Dana.

And apparently, Dana has a little "mad-scientist" in her. She made this amazing skull! Seriously.

It was so great to see Robin who recently gave birth to her second child. This quilt is in the works for him.

And finally, this beautiful succulent pillow from Agnes. Pattern by Material Girl.

Those who participated in the mug rug swap with our sister guild in Budapest, Hungary received their mug rugs. Of course, that wasn't all as each package contained other goodies and homemade cookies!

Thank you to our Hungarian friends and to Agnes for always being willing to keep us in contact with them.
