Finally First meeting done!!

Well we had a great turnout for our first meeting of 2017. All but two of our members were here- Marilyn and Norma missed! Here are photos of the Jan mtg.
Kathy was busy in the two months that we've not met for.... wow. Just wow.

" Lasagna Rose"

" Autograph Quilt"

"Barnyard Buds"

"Tipsy Tumblers"

"Tipsy Tumblers"- back
 These are two tops that Janet had worked on recently (at home) and brought in for us to see what we might have to put for the backing. We ALL LOVED this one!!!!
Janet's holding her "Wonky Starburst" quilt.

"Blue Crystal Heartstrings"
Dee and Margaret working on "MELA" (Mary Ellen's Last Act). Mary Ellen was one of our members who wasn't able to come to our meetings over the past year or so, due to caring for her husband, but always seemed to donate a quilt, quilt top with backings and bindings, or 'homework' heartstring blocks. Since her heartstring blocks always 'matched', we would put them in the center (or off-center) as a medallion, then build the other blocks around them. 

"Mela"s front peaking out....

Here is one of Mary Ellen's 'medallion' centers, that has the purple 'flags' twirling around them. This was a homework project for the group.
"Green Mono with Purple Flags"
 Yes, I do let them eat lunch... haha. The rest of the lunch crowd must have been in the kitchen heating up their food/ getting their drinks.

This is the front of our beach panel quilt (not named yet). We spent the afternoon working on the backing, which we're piecing together to make it a 2-sided quilt.
And if you don't sew, design or some other duty, we can always use someone to iron! Something for everyone to do.

Once they re done, they look beautiful on the wood railings near the altar. We place them here to be blessed on Sunday morning.
"Green Geese panel"
Here is "Lasagna Rose", "Sports Arena", "Autograph Quilt".
