We had 20 members at the September meeting, including two new members, Jeanine and Patty. Welcome!
Ed Orloff, physical therapist, gave us a presentation on how to prevent injuries and keep on quilting. He is a very informative and entertaining speaker. We appreciate all the helpful suggestions he shared with us. Ed is a member of the Borgess Spine Therapy Team and has this alphabet soup after his name: PT, DPT, CSCS, Dip.MDT!
Susan won 20 spider web blocks in our drawing. Congratulations!
We had a wonderful show and tell. Thanks to everyone for sharing.
A cutting mat and a fabric bundle were given to two luck door prize winners. Congratulations!
A sew-in followed our meeting.
And now, the show and tell portion of the blog post:
Susan shared a row quilt made out of such fun fabrics:

Love the roller skating fabric on Jill's new purse!
And now, a few unlabeled show and tell pics (this is what I get for posting the pics from the September meeting in March!!! Sorry about that...) I can't remember who made what or the stories behind them--if you made them or know who did, please let me know and I'll add in the info. (lisaeruble (at) gmail.com).
