November Meeting

Yesterday was our November meeting which featured Joanna teaching everyone how to do needle turn applique using her tree and leaf tutorial.  It was fun to see everyone's interpretation of their tree block. Some were bigger than others and some more funky than others.

Here we all are, face down, carefully needle turning our leaves to our trees while Joanna helps a few out.

Here's a cute quilt that Joanna made of all kinds of trees and leaves.  How fun is this! 
Joanna the showed us some of the other quilts that she has made using needle turn applique.  It was clear after seeing her amazing quilts that she is just awesome when it comes to needle turn (as if it wasn't clear before).  ;)

After we all made our trees we moved onto show and tell.

Isn't this a cute advent quilt?

Finally, I received my bee blocks from some of the great ladies in the guild.  One of them is missing in this picture.  Aren't the great though?  I love them all.  Now to think of how I want to piece them together.  Thank you again everyone! -Jen

Our December meeting will include a pincushion swap and a mini quilt challenge.
