November 26 Show & Tell Photos

We had a great turn out for Show & Tell at our November 26 meeting. Twenty one quilted items in all! Louise brought in a great quilted shoulder bag...

...and everyone else had quilts. Please scroll down or click the link to see them all!

Co-President Laura started us off with her first miniature quilt. You can see her hand at the top there, and in many of the subsequent photos as well!

Our other Laura made good use of a panel in her quilt "Deer Friends:"

Hazel's large quilt top "Tin Roof," designed by Godie Barrows, was a combination of the square-in-a-square technique and paper piecing:

I seem to recall that Irene said she put together this quilt top, "Red Pepper Jelly," in about a day!

Alas, the names of the makers of the next two quilts slipped us by. If you recognize them, please let us know at rvqgweb@gmail.com.

Lynn showed her "Darjeeling" quilt:

Sandra's wall hanging "Christmas Stardust" was made with a quilt-as-you-go technique:

Lesley showed a lap quilt that she made for her son-in-law to welcome him into the family:

In addition to the quilted bag shown earlier, Louise also had this throw quilt "Emma and Friends:"

Lisette brought in two of her McCall's Design Star 2012 award-winning quilts.  The first, Martinique, was her qualifying quilt.  You can see her original photo in the bottom left corner:

And we had another chance to see "Karmic Astrology Wheel," based on the theme "Opposites Attract:"

Annemarie showed her "Santa Claus" Christmas quilt:

Pat kept to a black and white colour scheme with her paper-pieced lap quilt "Winter Pines:"

Suzanne showed three co-ordinating baby quilts:

Marguerite brought in two quilts. The first is this "Santa in the Window" wall hanging:

And the second from Marguerite is this crazy-quilted lap quilt in Christmas fabrics:

To close the night, Janet showed the fourth quilt in her Opus series, "All that Jazz." There is quite a story behind Janet's quilt series! Kathy Wylie has written it up beautifully on her blog. Click here to read more.

Thanks to everyone for sharing their talent! Next time, at our January meeting, we will return to our normal practice of taking all the Show & Tell photos downstairs before the meeting. Happy sewing!
