Quilter's Anonymous Fun!

Three days of snowfall does not prevent those addicted to quilting from meeting and sewing together!
Quilters trudged through 18 inches of snow to share their quilting accomplishments and snacks!  Breaking a trail through all this white stuff required the sponsor to set down her containers ahead as far as she could reach, trudge by and forward, turn and pick it up ... repeat until she made it to the door!  Proof indeed that we are addicted to our craft!  Too fun!
Arriving was an expedition that appeared to have energized everyone who attended!  Chelsea share a few finishes!
This mother of three has accomplished a lot, with wonderful results!
Sam started a new jelly roll project, everyone enjoyed watching her results unfold!
Diane was busy piecing the quilt that she cut out at our last meeting!
Marcela started a new quilt project!  We're all excited to see it come together!
Tory began a project for a very special friend in need of comfort.  She is using charm squares, precuts do so much to assist with a project's progress!
Shannon continued piecing blocks for a large quilt that is in progress!  Her spring colors helped us all ignore the snow outside!
Denna made great progress on her Row by Row mystery!  She is ready to applique!
Angela has been busy working on baby quilts for her 9 month old twins!
Last month she finished her daughter's and now her son's is finished as well!  Great accomplishment with beautiful results!
We welcomed our newest and currently only male member!  Meet Elias!
He spent the day supervising his momma ...
... which is exhausting!

Everyone accomplished so much!  We celebrated everyone's progress, enjoyed great snacks, and surrounded ourselves with encouragement!

January Time to Sew Fun!

There was a lot of energy in the room on Saturday as members arrived with plans to make progress on their projects!
First things first ... Barb wowed us with multiple finishes for "show and tell"!




Barb inspires us all!  She spent the rest of the day starting a new project!
Susie made great progress on her Gingham Stars quilt!
We all found it hard to believe that Angela's twins are 9 months old already!  She finished the quilt top for her baby girl!
And managed to get a lot accomplished on the quilt for her baby boy!  Super mom and quilter!
Denna brought her "Row by Row" project and began piecing blocks.
She was able to end the day by adding a row to her quilt top!
Shannon was also busy piecing blocks!
As always, she made great progress as well!
Sam came with quilting goals for the day!
She bound this adorable baby quilt!
And added the borders to her Montana Cartwheel!  It is gorgeous!  Stunning!

Our day was filled with sewing, progress and encouragement!  What a wonderful way to begin the 2017 quilt year!
