Show and Tell

Yesterday's Breakfast Club had a small attendance. It's that time of the year when several of our regular attendees fly south for the winter. It gave us all more room to work but there isn't as much show and tell to share.

I'll start with the biggest quilt first. This is a "Curious George," quilt Kathy made for her grandson.

Kathy also got started on this Halloween quilt she will have quilted up in time for trick-or-treaters. It was a charm kit and the mouth is mega sized rick rack.

Jane brought in her finished, "Sidelights." Gorgeous!

Here is Julie Ann with a fun piece that is a quilt as you go technique. You top stitch the pieces onto a background that is already set up with the backing and batting. 

Megan attended the Valdez Quilt Show (I need to attend it one of these years) and took several classes. She is making two of these wonderful runners for Christmas gifts. Here's one in mainly red.

And her blue version.

She also made this notebook cover from scrap strips.

That reminded Barb she had made a notebook cover in Bernina Club. They learned felting, using a pintuck foot and of course those decorative stitches. 

Seems I have recruited another collector of Santa cross stitch ornaments!!! Barb is hooked...she's got several more Santa kits in her stash.

And here's a preview of the quilt for November's Breakfast Club. The quilt on the left is made with 2 1/2" squares and the one of the right is 2" squares.
