September Meeting Summary (much belated)

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:

With a pieced back!

Joanne shared a pencil pouch with a clear laminate pocket:

And a sweet little duffle made out of laminated fabric:

 Jackie shared her finished improv medallion top from the Gwen Marston workshop. Beautiful!

And her gorgeous rainbow kaleidoscope quilt:

And an iPad holder:

Jane shared a tote bag she made--love the fabric and the pattern! 

Pam shared a Jacquie Gehring quilt that she won--wow!

Stephanie shared her curved nine-patch quilt that had been quilted and bound. Love the quilting! Wow again!

And her new favorite pouch to make--the pouch of many zippers! :)

with a patchwork exterior

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).

A completed online activity quilt top!

Simple = beautiful in this quilt:

Stars and hexagons (Jackie?)
