October Meeting Recap

Once again...a bit late...but before the November meeting at least!  Our October meeting was focused on garment sewing with a wonderful presentation by Cindy.  She started by discussing different seam finishes, but also talked about pressing and all sorts of other things.  She answered all of our questions and even had a sheet of her favorite sites to help us when we are stumped on how to do something.  After her presentation she helped  some of us with our individual garment projects.  Thank you so much, Cindy!

A bit later in the meeting it was show and tell time.
Melinda showed us her gorgeous, completed Meadow quilt.

Alyson had garments that she had made for her daughter.

Kate finished a small messenger-style bag for her daughter.

Carissa modeled a new scarf that she made from flannel - now if it only would get cold enough to wear it!

Wendy might get the award for speed sewing as she had just started this quilt the night before, and it was pieced, quilted and bound, ready to donated!

Angela had lots to show...a quilt made from a variety of blocks...I think that I recognize some of those from the Denise Schmidt workshop!
...and a rail fence quilt...
some cute blocks with fussy cut centers...
and this fun wholecloth quilt in the works. 

Mary Jane showed the finished quilt that she had shared the pieces for in September.
She also shared a pair of pajama pants in progress

Sabrina was getting her Halloween sewing done early by completing her daughter's costume...
and also shared a cloth and vinyl bag with a velcro closure that she made to tame the toys.

Jane shared this beautiful finished quilt.

Dara had a completed kid quilt,
but she also shared a number of mini-quilts that she has completed.  My photography definitely does not do it justice!

I actually had finished something...a baby quilt for a friend...
and one that is getting donated to 100 Quilts for Kids.

Whew, done just in time for November.  I hope to see more great projects this weekend!
