April Eye Candy

Lots of our members took the opportunity to show off at our last guild meeting. Here are some of the gems:
Angela showed us how great it can look to print on fabric with your home printer and some freezer paper.

Suzie showed us some awesome scrappy tops she's working on. 

Her ironing was equally impressive!

Jennifer showed us this lovely top, called Made in Cherry.

Jennifer is a busy girl; she also shared this beauty, which may have been a favorite of the evening. This one was from a pattern called Plan C, from Schnibbles Times Two by Carrie Nelson

I finished this top just in time to bring to our meeting. It was my first time using negative space in a quilt.

Mindy made this sweet top for her great neice.

This is January's first completed quilt!! We were all so happy for her and the determination she showed seeing it through!

Anna D. made these coordinating baby quilts with the same pattern, but different fabrics.

Jonquele showed off this fun little art quilt as well as several fun and modern blocks.

Connie's butterfly quilt for a dear friend.

Camille shared her quilting bio and this little guy, heading off on a swap.

Gina made this for a high school graduate and changed the pattern's name from Twisted Ribbons to Ribbons to the Future.

Julie H. and her beautiful finished quilt!

Saturday Sit & Sew

Connie knocked this baby out!

We had a great turn out with about 10 members this past Saturday. 
A huge shout out goes to Anna A. for bringing a yummy lunch to share with us!!

Sewing Saturdays Around Town

Last Saturday was our March Saturday Sew and if you missed it you missed a fun time. It was a day full of friends (old and new) and some sewing. I'm not sure we all got as much done as we would have liked, but I wouldn't have had it any other way. Some things we did get done were mini stuffed chickens, pillow cases, a baby quilt, hand quilting, long arming 2 quilts and a bag. If you missed this fun day please try to join us next month. The April Saturday Sew will be on April 21st.

There's 2 other Saturday sewing events around town that are taught by our very own Miss Gail. The first Saturday of each month is the United Forever Club at The Berry Patch. We are working on a Civil War quilt. Most of us are making it modern with our choice of fabric.

Then the second Saturday of the month is Quilt Sitters, also run by Gail and also at The Berry Patch. Gail shows us some of her wonderful quilts and shares a technique or pattern. Then there's show and share, which is my favorite part of the meeting. It never ceases to amaze me how talented the quilters in the Fort Worth area are! We are working on a Quilt of Valor in that group.

So if you are looking for some Saturday activities look no further there's lots of fun around!
