March Show and Tell

The quilt above was paper pieced.
This was from a class Marjorie did over at the Quilt Cottage.

Green swirls that are zig-zag stitched around every edge.

Blanche sports one of the golden dahlia blocks that she can't stop making.

Marilyn (sp?) Shumway embroidered all of these lovely floral blocks and will give it to her granddaughter. The rest of the grandchildren will get quilting lessons.

Easter Quilt from the cottage.

Charming Tote from Quilt Cottage class.

Embroidered birthday quilt.

Good job on everything ladies!

Quilt Cottage

By the way, the Main Street Quilt Cottage is celebrating national quilting day by having a sale starting this Saturday. Go to their website and look at the calendar for details. (You have to click on an event on the calendar to see the details.)

If you know about fun sales at our local stores, email me and I'll be happy to post them. My email address is princesschamberlain AT gmail DOT com. (Put in the at at dot, I just format it that way to avoid junk emails.)

This Month's Meeting

Don't forget our meeting on Thursday this week!

Ruth sent the following:

Chenille Workshop = Materials were handed out in Feburary.

Please bring your supplies as listed. Marjorie will bring extra batting, fabric and other fill in items. She will take us to the point of sewing, so if you do not bring your machine to class you can sew and cut the last 2 steps of your potholders at home. We will stack,mark and have it ready to take home at this point. Be sure to use your walking foot to sew the Chenille. Bring some pins too.

Please bring back the instructions , if you took one, for " Thread Catcher"!!!! Evelyn will appreciate them!!! Time will be limited, busy and fun with 2 workshops going on. So come and enjoy our time together!!

You know you're a quilter if you can measure a scant 1/4" by eye !!!
