July Meeting 2017: Christmas In July!

For this month's meeting we met at Jane's house for a little get together with food and drinks. We got a chance to talk and mingle before all sitting down for show and tell.

Jan started us off with presenting next month's Block of the Month. 
It's called the Scrappy X and Plus Quilt Block.


Next we had a drawing. Each member received a ticket for coming and there were two door prize winners:
Patti won the Culcita Box, which is a subscription box that comes in the mail once a month, and Maritza won an Improv Book.

To start off Show and Tell, Patti brought in 3 baby quilts She didn't have anyone in particular to make them for but just loved the fabrics. The 3rd was made from a charm pack.






She also made this table runner as a store sample for Primitive Gatherings.


Susan made this adorable mini quilt in memory of her dog Manny. The embellishments were hand quilted.



This circle quilt was one she started 2 years ago and just recently picked back up again to finish.




Susanne made this T-shirt quilt top for her friend's teenage son.




Linda shared an old quilt she made 8 or 9 years ago.  The pattern was the "1 block wonder" and was all made with one fabric.



Natalie brought in this quilt which was originally created for her solids challenge. She even matched the binding with the quilt.






Jane shared with us one of her oldest quilts from 1995. She had taken a class when her kids were little, and when she made it her and her family were living in Minnesota.


Maritza  showed us her mermaid quilt she made for her 1 year old granddaughter's birthday.



And this quilt was made for 3 year old grandson (which will be for Christmas).


After Show and Tell Jessica led us in a game of Charades where we had had to guess which animals we were. It was quite hilarious.

And we ended our evening with the hot pad swap. Here are all the beautiful and fun hot pads which were swapped.



Our next meeting with be back at Primitive Gatherings on Thursday, August 17th, at 6:30 pm. We'll he having a scrap swap and a DIY pressing board demo by Susan. Hope to see you all there!
