We Meet Again!

The second Monday of each month (with the exception of Dec and July) the Blue Earth Valley Quilters meet at the high school.  It is growing each month!  Show and Tell is always a high light...gets us all inspired! 

Wendy showed lots of things that she's made...hey...I made one of those pumpkin recipe thingies...where ... oh ...where is it?

Following the tradition of making use of what you've got, Barb used men's ties to make these great purses!  We really shouldn't throw anything away!! 

Wendy used crayolas to do some shading on this wall hanging.

After finishing quilting a "ten year" quilt, Sharon is starting a smaller project...but lots of little pieces!

But just to show she does do some quicker projects...a place mat in a day! 

Guess who showing what can be done with leftovers. 

A new Island Sunrise for our daughter...

and the one she is trading in.

This braid was fun to make, but lots of bias to stretch.  One of those quilts you want to keep waving so no one can see how bad it really is.  Will it lay flat???  And there will be more...

ps-something to put on your calender...November 21 is our "Cash for Trash" event...or better known as a way of getting rid of our unwanted stash stuff.  All money is given towards our Expo.

  1. Cool pics. I am glad to see, as I was home sick. The lady with the purses made from Ties (really) is Barb Paine.
    Speaking of Ties. Wouldn't they be nice made into a blindfold for sleeping?
