The Rose Garden at Juila Davis Park was a perfect backdrop for our September meeting, and Halloween fabric (and candy!) put us in the fall mood.
We spent some time discussing meeting format in the coming months. Based on comments at the meeting, we’ll plan for a combination of in-person meetings, held outside (weather permitting), indoors in a large room with space to socially distance (think a large meeting room at the library, or a church multi-purpose room), and likely some virtual meetings on Zoom. Here’s the schedule for the next few months:
- October 8: Club Mod on Zoom (7-9 p.m.)
- October 23: Monthly Meeting in Person (1-3 p.m.)
- November 12: Club Mod on Zoom (7-9 p.m.)
- December 4: Annual Meeting on Zoom(1-3 p.m.)
- December 10: Club Mod on Zoom (7-9 p.m.)
- January 22: After-Holiday Swap (1-3 p.m.)
Show and tell
Possibly the favorite part of our meeting….? Here’s a sampling of what we shared (see details below photos):
- As the feature of our Member Spotlight, Cathy Rogers kicked things off. Her love of all things Tula showed up in the quilt that graces her living room couch, where we suspect she reads some of the 34 books she’s working towards reading this year. (So far she’s at 30!).
- Nancy E. showed a hexi ornament she made based on what she saw in McCall’s Quilting magazine November/December 2021 issue, and a scrappy pattern she bought on a road trip to the Stitch n’ Snip in Crouch.
- Lindsie finished binding one of the Sisters of the Hex quilts.
- Robin joined us for the first time and showed the quilt she made from a kit, featuring Kaffe Fasset wovens
- Terri worked on knitting socks, while Kathy S. couldn’t help but show off her designer orange bag
- Karen decided to make some really small hexis, and then wondered what to do with them… here’s what she ended up with!
- Marilyn got serious about finishing projects this year, and it shows! She showed a jelly roll quilt; an orange quilt that started as a kit purchased in 2010 with Kaffe Fasset prints; a Halloween wall hanging started in 2009; and a skull quilt using Tim Holtz fabric purchased years ago at Salli’s Back Porch Fabric Store in Shoshone. And then! she stunned us with a quilt commissioned by a family member, using a photo of a landscape for color inspiration, and design inspired by Denyse Schmidt.
- Elizabeth completed two Bonnie Hunter quilts: Appalachian Autumn and a round-robin style Unity quilt (which was sewn mostly from Elizabeth’s stash! Impressive)
- Linda brought candy (!!) and her completed Bats and Boos mystery quilt from FatQuarter Shop.
