July Meeting -- Show and Tell

This month's Overachiever was Ellie with two quilts: her Japanese quilt, front and back, all finished and good to go ...

and her Kaffe Fassett quilt top.

Marie-Laur showed her completed scarf, knitted from the most wonderful Japanese wool.

Rhonda will use this composed fabric as inserts into note cards.

Lee thought that bags would be much easier than quilts but, after making this very nice bag, has changed her mind.

And here is a quilt top she made from treasures found in someone else's clean-out and give-away.

Merlyn brought her scrappy charm quilt, front and back, which she is currently quilting ...

... and here is a quilt for her grandson, who was supposed to be a granddaughter and get the pink and green quilt she made first.

And here is my 'This is Your Life' quilt made for a challenge. The fringe is from my scarf and isn't really part of the quilt. Maybe it should be ...

And another one of Enid's string pieced quilts.

And a quilt that Cecilia made from Liberty scraps.

SAQA Auction

SAQA, Studio Art Quilt Associates, has an auction of art quilts donated by members as one of their major fundraisers. One of our MNO members, Alison Muir, has donated a quilt for this year's auction.

The quilts are all one foot square (30 cms) and are being uploaded to SAQA's auction site. The auction will go live 10 November, just in time for holiday gift giving. Alison's quilt is on page 6.

And remember: Bid early, bid often!

June Meeting -- Show and Tell

I kicked off this month's Show and Tell with my entry for the My Place exhibition. It wasn't accepted but I still like it, much more than the expression on my face would lead you to believe.
And Enid was this month's Overachiever ... which would put her membership in MNO at risk if we didn't like her so much. Standards must be maintained.
And a quilt from Jennie that come to visit every so often and is coming along quite nicely.
