WISQ March 2009

We were greeted by Lucy, Sue’s dog, as we arrived for our March meeting.  Sue knitted her the cutest purple sweater.  Look at her pose, just like a model.

After everyone settled in with something to drink and munch on, Sue started things off by sharing a Glad mystery quilt she finished.  Although it wasn’t her favorite quilt ever, she got lots of ooh and aahs when she unfolded it.  “I’m sure someone will take it off your hands Sue.”

Cindy shared her Ramblin Rose Quilt.  It was a block of the month program from Fat Quarter Quilts in Coon Rapids. It’s a design by Marti Michell using templates.  — Okay, I’m going to weigh in on this.  I did these blocks too, and I am totally not a fan of using templates. — But . . . .  didn’t it turn out to be beautiful?

Here’s a runner by Cindy.  The pattern is Jack’s Favorite by Perkins Drygoods.  It would look great in my house!!

Cathy is the Queen of scrap quilts.  Here’s a log cabin she pieced and quilted from numerous scraps.  It turned out looking gorgeous, which just confirms what I believe.  Sometimes the more fabrics in a quilt the merrier.

If Cathy’s the scrap queen, than Shirley is the runner queen.  Here’s a runner that’s maybe more of a topper.

Another great runner (that again would look great in my house) has a “cheater” backing.

The next one is a real stunner –  lots and lots of oohs and aahs.  Shirley made it specially for her grand niece.  Lucky girl!

Mary shared the cutest little star quilt that she made for Jo’s Little Women Club. Several of us attend this monthly meeting at Four Season’s Quilts in Plymouth.

Karen started off by sharing a beautiful leaf quilt designed by Heather Mulder Peterson.  I love the black background.

Here’s a big block quilt, also by Karen.

Finally a fabulous pink and brown quilt Karen made from a Debbie Caffrey mystery pattern.  She says it’s one of her most favorite quilts ever ( but Karen has lots of beautiful quilts and lots of favorites).  I think it’s superb.

It was a great night of fun and show and tell.  We are good!

I almost forgot the most exciting news of all. My tell . . . . . . . . . I’m going to be a Grandma!!
