Show and Tell

-          Carrie showed her strip quilt made with Amy Butler’s martini dots that she used the accuquilt go to cut.  She put it together in about 2 hours

-          Serenity brought her first quilt ever – it was awesome!!  She used an array of Anna Maria Horner fabrics and put it together without a pattern, trying to blend colors together

-          Moni brought three pieces; one she made for an auction, another using bento boxes but not in the traditional way and a spectacular appliqué piece using the Ann Holmes method.  She also told us about a website for free motion quilting information

-          Marci brought her fabric challenge in because she thought it was due today having only heard about it yesterday!  She made a doll with clothing and matching quilt.

-          Kassie brought a reversible table topper that she made using scraps and an Amy Butler back which she followed the hexagonal pattern for quilting.

Quilting class coming up at The Top Stitch on October 6th from 6-8pm.  Cost is $38 which includes the pattern for the “Five and Dime” quilt you’ll be making.
