Important Retreat Information!

If you are taking the Machine Quilting Class at retreat this weekend it is important to have the simple table runner pieced in advance!  The directions for the table runner were given to you when you signed up!  There is still room in the class!  We're so excited to offer this opportunity to our members!  See you Saturday!

Patchwork Party Progress!

The October Patchwork Party took place today!
Barb was busy!  She cut out three Thimbleberries projects!
Terry made great progress and completed this project!  She prepared the backing and it is ready to be quilted!
Lila was working on a Christmas project that included tiny bits that will result in Bear Paw blocks!
Sara wowed us with her finish!  This was a pattern in the book that featured continuous line embroidery or quilting designs.
We all fell in love with Sara's version of this pattern.  She was busy finishing up the binding!

We had a great time catching up with one another...sipping hot cider...and making progress on our projects!  What a terrific way to spend a Sunday afternoon!  It is hard to believe that we've been meeting for 10 months and only have two meetings left!
