March 5 Meeting

Yahoo .... at last the weather cooperated today and most of us were in attendance. Get well soon Margee, we missed you. We have lots of quilts to show off today.

AND a very big WELCOME to Cathy and Sharyn. They're taking Marilyn's FREE beginner quilting classes (8 weeks (now through April)). Don't they look very studious.

Classes are free and open to anyone.

Our Becky brought 3 quilts today to show off. First is an oriental pattern ... it's beautiful.

I forgot to get the name of this pattern but we love the vintage looking fabrics especially the rose ones. A couple more borders and this one will be off to Becky's long armer.

This treasure might go missing from Becky's house. We all fell in love with it. Becky's mother made the top ... all men's wool suiting fabrics. Becky tied it and finished off the binding today.

Marilyn's Ohio Star for her grandson is fabulous. She purchased the embroidered blocks and did the photo transfer herself. We can't wait to see it after it's long armed.

Ellie's Delectable Mountains ... isn't it out of this world. It's all hand quilted too.

Sandy showed off a couple quilts. These 2 are for returning Troops.

This one plus 5 others were donated to Habitat House in Franklin, WV

After show'n'tell everyone got to work on their projects.

Helen is working on an adorable baby quilt.

Sharon is working on her Puppy Dog quilt ... it is too adorable.

Nancy ponders her Alaskan landscape.

Sandy continues binding a charity quilt. Marilyn helps us all and gets ready for the new quilting ladies.
