October 2019 Meeting

October's meeting was a fun one with Show and Tell and a hands on demo from Jessica. After announcements, Jessica presented the Block of the Month which is called the Whirlwind Block. The BOM post can be found here





We started off Show and Tell with Lori and the amazing Catch all Caddy she made.




Lori also made this beautiful quilt for herself.



Jessica brought in a fun finished UFO Christmas quilt top she started last year. 



She also finished the snuggly flannel baby quilt made from scraps from the free table for grandbabies.




Denise made the Bad Girl Quilt by Southern Charm Quilts and used the Autumn Vibes line. What a perfect quilt for Fall!



She also finished this Country Chic quilt by Sew Kind of Wonderful.



After Show and Tell, Jessica gave a demo on how to make quilted ornaments. She brought in extra supplies so we could join in on the fun and make them along with her.








This was one of the completed ornaments she made at home. 





For step by step instructions you can watch a YouTube tutorial here.


At the end of the meeting we had our monthly raffle. Here were the winners:

Denise won some cute zipper pouches, Maddelynn won a Charm Pack, and Jessica won the Primitive Gatherings gift card.

Our next meeting will be November 21st, at which time we will be voting for next year's board members. We're also starting to collect dues for next year which will be $40. Dues can be paid via cash or check. And for those who took charity quilt kits, the quilt tops need to be returned by our January meeting.

Hope you see you all at the next meeting! :)
