Gearing up for our next Quilt Show

Yes, planning is underway for our next quilt show in 2015.
It was suggested that the group members all make a block for the raffle quilt, the pattern has been chosen and Gwen will be guiding us through the process, and for some of us who only machine quilt it will also be a learning curve on hand piecing.
Gwen shared these blocks with the group today to show the way and to inspire us.

As most of us know, Heather moved house at the end of last year, today she shared this lovely Christmas wall hanging that she had created for her new home. 

Now normally the pics are cropped down to give you a better view, normally...but things aren't swinging too normally in my neck of the woods at the moment.  It's to do with house painting and a packed up office/sewing room, all last minute, so I can't find a thing, including the computer mouse and for the life of me I can't work out how to crop pics on the laptop....I'm sure I can find out, but not just at this moment.  Nevertheless, I'm sure you can enjoy Heather's lovely hanging.

We have all been making scrappy quilts over the past few months, well almost a year now, and some folks are looking for different patterns to use, here are two links that you might enjoy, both via Ami Simms,  this one is also on youtube thanks to Ami.
Ami met Megan Null at a class she was giving and noticed Megan saving all the little scraps Ami usually tells her students to throw away.  Pop over to Ami's post, scroll down and watch the video of how Megan uses every little piece of fabric.

The second scrappy quilt is from Ami Simms facebook page and is a class she teaches. https://www.facebook.com/AmiSimmsQuilter

Haven't had time yet to contact Ami or search her site for a pattern but there is bound to be one.

Thank you very much to Marie for taking the Show and Tell pics for us and the stories.
