March 8 Meeting - your projects part 1

There are always so many beautiful quilts and projects each month! Its always fun to see so many!

 Heidi showed a levi quilt top and an easy and cute pink stripe baby quilt.

 Stephanie M has been making the cutest little skirts - we love the flower detail on each one -

 and these adorable ties for the boys.

 I think everyone fell in love with the wipe covers Stephanie M and Trina made. Here is one tutorial to make a wipe case cover for anyone interested in making them.

 Teri brought a brown and cream quilt top she is making for a bedroom redo and she showed this woodland wall quilt that would be perfect to decorate a cabin or trophy room.

Tonya brought the crib ruffle and bumper set she is making for a new baby boy. She also made a matching wipe cover and car seat cover in such a fun color combination!

 Rosemary finished her jellyroll sampler quilt we have been working on. She chose a valentine themed jelly roll for her blocks and paired it with a brown background - a combination we thought was unusual but we all love. The instructions for all the blocks in the sampler quilt can be found here.
Rosemary also showed a patchwork quilt that uses purple embroidered blocks and lots of scraps for the accent blocks and borders.

Julie brought her finished I Spy quilt. It is pieced using disappearing 9-patch blocks and was quilted by LeAnn. Julie also brought some poems that could be included on the label of I Spy quilts. Thanks Julie!

I Spy
by Ron Nelson
I spy, and so I see
So many stories in front of me.
A quilt of wonders in every fold,
Every square is a tale to be told.

Every thing and every face
Has a story and has a place.
So have a look try to spy,
See what's there, and tell me why.

14,286 Pieces of Fabric
author unknown
Behind the painted picket gate
There lived a quilter known as Kate.
She had one son, a boy named John;
One daughter whom she doted on.
She had one husband and one house,
One pup, one cat, one little mouse,
and 14,287 pieces of fabric.
