WISQ April 2009

Tonight I headed up to Shirley’s house in Anoka for our April WISQ meeting.  Our group was a little smaller than usual since some members were traveling, but we still a fun time and great show and tell.

Cathy has been knitting up a storm using up Karen’s leftover yarn.  She’s making what she’s calling “black toed socks.”

She also made a quilt with lots of quilting quotes.

Cindy made a library bag for her granddaughter.

Deb brought an Easter runner with the cutest backing.  Who could resist all those little  bunnies?

Karen finished the latest Glad mystery top, Log Cabin Shuffle.  It’s in gorgeous brights, just right for her 5 year old grandson.

Mary Beth finished last fall’s Glad mystery.  It’s called Friends Forever.  Look at all those great right-handed friendship stars.

Shirley invited her friend Suzanne to be a guest.  She brought some beautiful quilts to share.

Shirley had the most show and tell of all.  She brought a fabulous quilt that she made from blocks originally made by her grandmother.  It was the first quilt she ever brought to the group back in the old days when she didn’t even sew.  It  looks fabulous.

We’re continuing to sew blocks for our 2009 – 2010 charity quilts.  We collected another 100 and some tonight, no thanks to me I regret to say. Most were done by Cathy, some by Shirley I think.  Karen reported we have enough for 13 tops so far, not counting these new ones.
