Robyn, thank you for hosting our meeting this month and a big thank you to Nancy C. for helping with the lunch! Next month, October, we are meeting on the 31st at Lenette's. Also The AccuQuilt is at Robyn's house if anyone wants to borrow it.
Here's our show and tell:
Rachel used panels to make these 4 outdoor quilts for her sons for Christmas. On the back she found some extremely soft fabric called Sew Lush from Joann's. It felt even softer than minky.
Rachel made this baby quilt.
Diane made this pinwheel baby quilt using one line of fabric.
Diane made this wedding garland using Twill tape ordered from Amazon and cut various lengths of ribbon, flowers and greener and tied it all on upside down.
Maurene was given these flower garden hexagon blocks that her mother made. They were all hand-pieced. Maurene sewed them onto the white fabric and added the sashing thanks to several employees from Quilt Expressions who helped her pick the fabrics.
Cindy used lots of flannel scraps, 2 1/2" squares, to make this Scrappy Heart quilt.
Cindy also made this Halloween wallhanging using the stack and whack method for the scrappy looking border.
She attached a label she made using her embroidery machine.
Cindy also made this Halloween table topper, a dresden neighborhood.
Lenette also made the same Halloween quilt but used some different fabrics.
Here is a finished project from last month!
Jean made this Halloween wool table topper
Jean also made this wool pillow.
This "Lexington" fabric "Emblem" block quilt was made by Jean. The pattern is from the Fat Quarter Style book.
Jean also made this patriotic quilt.
Another quilt made by Jean. Even the quilting contains some anchors.
Jean made this Christmas wall hanging from a kit using embroidered squares and pinwheels.
Robyn made this large half-square triangle quilt top for a granddaughter. She used grunge fabrics.
Jean shared this T-shirt quilt that her sister, Joan, made. Very creative placement and unique style for a t-shirt quilt.
Jean also shared this quilt made by her twin sister, Joan.
Monica made this double churn dash quilt using fabric from the Varsity Line.
Robyn presented a great demo about the use of color and choosing colors for your quilts. She gave each of us fabric squares to use as our own personal color wheel. Here's a website that will be a wonderful reference and reminder of what she taught.
1 loaf French bread – split in half
2 tomatoes, sliced
2 avocados, sliced
1 lb. turkey or ham, sliced
sliced cheese – provalone, mozzarella, or other
(Recipe makes more dressing than needed for 1 sandwich)
1 c. mayo
2/3 c. sour cream
¼ c. chopped olives
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
½ tsp. salt
1/3 c. chopped green onion.
Layer on split loaf of French bread:
dressing (be generous)
* This sandwich can also be baked. Make as directed then place on cookie sheet. Tent with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Tomato Corn Salad
Cherry tomatoes, halved
Dressing is olive oil, fresh lime juice, salt, and a little sugar
Stir all together and then add crumbled Cotija cheese to your taste.
Fresh Fruit Cobbler
¼ c. butter
2 tsp. baking powder
1 c. sugar, divided
¾ c. flour
½ tsp. salt
¾ c. milk
3-4 c. fresh fruit (peaches or blackberries are good)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare fruit (wash and slice as needed) then mix with ½ c. sugar and set aside. Melt butter in a 9”x9” baking dish. Mix up a batter with ½ c. sugar, the flour, baking powder, salt, and milk. Pour batter over melted butter, but do not stir. Spoon prepared fruit evenly over top of batter. Do not stir. Bake 45-50 minutes. The batter will rise to the top and will be brown and crisp. Serve hot or cold. Good with ice cream.
