September Quilter's Anonymous Meeting

Sally finished up a pair of pajamas she made for daughter.  Sew cute!
Shannon began the day working on the hand applique' for her Overture wall quilt.
By the end of the meeting, she had framed it and was cutting the borders!
Terry also had needle in hand ...
... working on intricate hand applique'.
Sam spent all day standing at her serger working on a community service project.
We eventually made her sit down!  She is making hundreds of fabric name tags!
Amber has made great progress on her feather inspired quilt!
Denna has begun a new project and learned a new technique, paper piecing!
Valerie also worked on a hand applique' project!
She was busy making color choices for the final two blocks!  Beautiful!
A member of the community brought in an antique quilt that her grandmother made in the 1950's.  What a treasure!  We had such fun looking at the fabric and techniques she used!  And we're all so happy that it is in the arms of someone who gives it the honor and respect it deserves!
