Sept. mtg Show and Tell

Our cancer auction quilts went together very fast this year and we are donating them to Expedition Inspiration for their annual cancer research auction. After meeting at Tracey's, where we cut and sewed the top, she and Monica machine quilted both the large and small quilt on Tracey's longarm quilting machine. The large quilt is made up of a layer cake called Always Forever. The backing is a wonderful cozy white flannel. The pattern is called Twister (this link will take you to a tutorial that our fellow Material Girl, Corrie, posted).  We were pleasantly surprised at how quick and easy the quilt top came together.
Below is the smaller quilt. Kelley took it to finish the binding. This one was made by alternating pink and white squares before cutting the twister design.

Here are the show and tells from our group:
 Jeri made these primitive wool table runners. The pattern is in the McCall's Fall Magazine 2011
 Some of Rachel's decorations around her house.

  Susan's wool wall hanging. Sounds like this is for her daughter-Lucky! This pattern is The Woolen Needle.

 Susan made these adorable spiders.
 We made these cute jars at our meeting also. Just paint the inside of the jar (no need to wait for it to dry!) then add the vinyl sticker faces to the outside, place a  small candle inside the jar and it's ready for show.
 Susan's wool table toppers

  Kelley's blue and yellow quilt top. It's a Schnibbles pattern.

Rachel's fall quilt. The backgrounds are cotton, the rest is wool- Gorgeous! This is a Heart To Hand pattern. The pattern comes in four sets, the title is Autumn Quilt.

 Kelley's ladybug wall quilt. Very vibrant.
 Rachel's Pizza Box Exchange finished quilt.

  Rachel's star quilt. This pattern is called The Lone Star from Six White Horses. The method is paper piecing. This lovely block was found on Pinterest.

My fence rail quilt-finally finished. Well, not quite. I'm still sewing the binding on. But I'm excited to get started on my next project. I'm thinking about trying a split 4-patch!
