First meeting of 2017 was held at Cindy's and we had a wonderful time. For the most part of the winter we've been snowed in and it felt great to get out and get together again. Thank you Cindy for hosting and also Jeri for helping out with the lunch!! Not only did we have our regular Show and Tell, but we also brought items we have made through the years for Valentine's.
Announcements: Susan and Monica (who are hosting next month) issued a yoyo challenge to all of us. We were each given a square of yoyo's from the first quilt shown here and asked to come back next month with a finished piece using that square.
Here is our Show and Tell followed by a few pics of a demo given by Lenette of how to make a flanged binding and our luncheon.
SHOW AND TELL
Susan found this yoyo quilt at a garage sale. She had extra squares that she won't be using so that's how she came up with the idea for a group challenge.
Susan also shared this candy holder she made to hold Valentine's treats.
Susan also made this Christmas quilt from some pieces she received from Jean at our last meeting.
A friend made this for Susan for the winter. It's a face cover for cold weather.
This is a bag Susan got as a gift. It's a feed sack bag made by a woman in Uganda. It was purchased through an organization called Beyond Uganda that teaches women to become self sustainable through skills learned.
