March 4 Meeting That Was

Twenty-five quilters turned out for the March meeting, six of whom were first-time visitors! We hope to see you again!

Among Show and Tell, the mug rug swap, and the Bay Area Modern BOM (no photos), we saw some very nice projects.

Lynda, visiting from Canada, shared this selvages quilt. She's actually used it here in Florida, on a couple of our cold nights.

Doris shares a baby quilt (left) and an art wall hanging quilt.

 This is the first quilt Debbie has ever made!

After learning at the February meeting how to sew Scrappy Trip-Along blocks, Andy went home to make a couple blocks and is working on 72 more for his quilt!

Working with her mother on this project, Mel showed how she made a smaller version of the Scrappy Trip-Along block as a background for this wall hanging.

Sharon is making a king-sized quilt for newly-weds, using Jansdotter fabrics.

Sheddy, and another of her bright quilts using a cheddar solid and scraps.

First-timer, Carly showed a quilt on which she did her first free motion quilting.

Sue showed us her spray-basted quilt, asking for input on quilting ideas. We all agreed she should quilt bubbles.

 Sixteen mug rugs were submitted for the mug rug swap, and swapped!

At the next meeting, Monday, April 1 at Sharky's Vac 'n Sew, we'll continue the monthly:
April's challenge is to make a name tag. Program information will be posted as soon as it's available.

What beautiful quilts everyone has! And those fun mug rugs! You girls (and boy!) are obviously a very imaginative and creative bunch and I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Wonderful post, and pictures! Thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of you wonderful quilters, and am looking forward to the next meeting on April 1st (no fooling). :)

Enjoyed being part of the group. As a "snowbird" I must head north before the next meeting but will be following the group's work and BOM challenge via internet. By the time I return next year, I hope to have my Modern BOM quilt ready for show and tell.
