A Rip-Roaring Success!

In February, members who wanted to participate in the Rip-Roaring Exchange submitted their "spring" themed fabric!  Each quilter took home the fabric of another and secretly created something special with it!
Darlene made two beautiful sewing accessories for Shannon, as well as a pillowcase!  Such fun!
Shannon made Terri a zipper bag and knitting needle case!
Terri made Susie a sewing machine cover!
Susie made Darlene a handbag!
Diane made Denna a lap quilt!
Marianne made Diane a beautiful table runner!
Sally made Marianne a sewing mat and fabric box!
Denna made Sally an organizer and zippered bag!
What a wonderful and fun event!  It was amazing to see what everyone had done with another's fabric!  Completely unpredictable and wonderful in every way possible!  Each item a treasure!  We all owe a huge thanks to Darlene for organizing this very successful event!  Thanks a million Darlene!
