Goodbye 2011!

I thought I would take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy Holiday Season. Wether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or Kwanza, may the Holidays bring you love and happiness and good times with family (and perhaps a bit of time for quilting???). Thank you to everyone who has been following our blog and to all the members of BMQG; we wouldn't be a guild without you. Keep a lookout in the new year for blog themes and project ideas.

See you all in 2012!!!

December Show and Tell

After our kitchen swap, and after we stuffed our faces with all of the food people brought, we did a little show and tell. 
Alice made this table runner when she was testing out patterns for the kitchen swap.

Rebecca is working on a Dresden quilt.

Alexis is working on a Swoon quilt for her son who wanted a red quilt.

 And here's a table runner that she's finishing the quilting on...

Laurie made this quilt for her son.  He's been really into motorcycles lately.
Here's the back! 
Jane made this cute Christmas wreath quilt.
Emily tackled this quilt after drooling over it for a while.  Turns out it was super easy.
Here's a closeup.

Finally, I showed my first whole cloth mini quilt (It's 10" square). 

As always, the talent of the group is always impressive.  I can't wait to see what people bring to the next meeting in January.

Kitchen Swap Reveal

On Saturday we met and revealed our kitchen swap items. As always, the ladies out did themselves and created some fantastic items.
Laurie, the Dresden queen, made a table runner for Alice.

Alice made me this amazing wall hanging.
I made pot holders and hand towels for Rebecca.
Rebecca made napkins for Alexis.
Alexis made a basket, mini quilt and coasters for Jane.
And Jane made some awesome goodies for Laurie!

Thank you to everyone that participated in the swap.  I think I speak for everyone when I say THANK YOU.  Everyone did an amazing job.
