March Thimbleberries Party!

Many club members were out of town enjoying spring break, but that didn't stop us from making progress and having a good time!
Everyone enjoyed seeing the kits that were received in the last shipment!  And ... of course ... we wished we had ordered them all!  Such beautiful fabric!
Sara has made great progress on her table topper ... it is ready to be quilted!
Sara has also begun work on the embroidery blocks ... she already has half of them done!  Amelia is such a hoot!  When you ask her to smile for the camera ... she opens her mouth into the perfect "choir singing" shape!  Too cute!
Terry was busy adding the flowers to her table topper!
Cece was happy with the progress she made!  We were impressed too!
Lila hasn't received a kit yet, but that didn't prevent her from getting things done!
It was so fun to get together!  Sewing ... visiting ... and snacking on Grasshopper Cupcakes!

Time to Sew Fun!

Several feet of fresh snow didn't stop some of our members from coming to the March Time to Sew event last Saturday.  It was a good thing they brought their shovels as they were required to shovel their own path into the building!
Barb was busy working on this Santa quilt...easy to think Christmas with all this snow as inspiration!
As always, Barb is very industrious and finished the center of her...
...Thimbleberries, Love Me Tender wall quilt.
This beautiful top was pieced by Kelsey,
... Diane's daughter.  Diane U. appears to be working on one of her Bonnie Hunter quilts and making good progress!
Terry B. is also making great progress on her Minnesota Shop Hop 2011 Quilt.
Diane W. and Valerie seem to be enjoying themselves as well!  Everyone had fun spending the day together doing what we love...quilting!
