November Meeting Recap

Thanks so much to Melinda for this month's tutorial!  Melinda walked us through her process of designing a machine paper pieced block with a fun and interactive presentation.  Nice job! 

We welcomed four new attendees this month; Teri, Angela, Tiffany, and Melissa!  Thanks for coming, ladies! 

Frederick floated the possibility of showing our quilts and hosting an event at the Anacostia Arts Center in February.  More info on that will be forthcoming.

It was decided to hold a Yankee Gift Swap at the December meeting- If you would like to participate, please bring a $10, sewing-related, wrapped gift. (Please only bring purchased items, not handmade!)

This month's show and tell:
Mari's lovely Swoon quilt- a gift
Tiffany's making a pillowcase for a friend out of this lovely fabric find!
Lynne finished her paper-pieced star from last meeting
Angela brought this great EPP project (and was basting 1/2" hexies during this meeting!)
Frederick's Wonky Stars
Back of Wonky Stars- just as awesome as the front!
Susan rescued Amy's orphan top and finished it for charity

Melissa is using up inherited yarn in this cool pattern!
