Recap of 04/19/13 Meeting

It’s that Spring Break/Vacation time of year so our Quilts of Valor meeting attendance was a little lighter this month but that didn’t mean that we couldn’t crank out a high volume of work!  We had some guests drop in from out of town and we wanted to mention that it was fun to talk with you.  Hope to have you visit again when you can stay longer … Everyone is welcome to join this fun group.

These fabulous tops and quilts came back in to be distributed or finished:
Jacque brought in this fabulous quilt.  She made it from her own fabric and it has a pillowcase presentation package to match!

Check out this detail photo with the beautiful fabrics and the great embroidered label:

Two more finishes from our standard 4th of July pattern:

 And look at this modified version of that pattern.  Doesn’t that look too cool?!
Borders were added at this meeting
A wonderful Carpenter’s Star quilt top:
Thank you, Vanna White (oops, I mean Ginger)

The ladies made kits, sewed bindings together and on quilts, and even had a hand sewing tag-team thing going on!:

Pat was working on a QOV quilt-as-you-go project:

Of course, we took just a few moments for Show and Tell.  Pat had a finished quilt and has been working on seasonal wall hangings/table toppers and Suzanne has a delightful angel in progress:

Thank you, Pat and Suzanne, for sharing your treasures with the group.  And a special thank you to Pat, for bring in that delicious cake.  Yummy!  We missed you if you couldn't make it to the meeting - hope to see you next month.
