February Meeting

Our February meeting was held in Topsfield.  For this meeting, we spent some time shopping at Sew Fresh Fabric's facility either before or after the meeting and we held a show and tell.  In addition, a bunch of members gave our beloved president, Laurie, a few homemade gifts in anticipation of the birth of her second child any day now.
Here we are at the beginning of the meeting.

Here are some of the quilts/projects shown during show and tell. 
Laurie finished her Bee quilt.
Karen is adding the binding to a quilt for a friend.
A quilt by one of our new members.
Another new member quilt (I wasn't quick enough here with the camera).
This is the back.
And another one...
Alexis finished her Swoon quilt.
Leah is working on this quilt and has four blocks done. 
She's also finishing the binding on her zig zag quilt.
Amy brought her fab courthouse steps quilt to show.
I showed my storm at sea quilt.
Jane shared another Verna quilt.  She's trying to use up the rest of her Verna fabric.
She's also working on an English paper pieced quilt.  Here's one block.
One of our new members is working on her first quilt.  Here she shows us two of her blocks.
These are two dowry quilts that Nyshma made prior to her wedding.  Her story is in American Patchwork & Quilting. Check it out.

Alice brought her zig zag quilt to show.

Baby Gifts for Laurie
Members of the guild made some great gifts for our president, Laurie as she prepares to welcome baby #2 very soon. Here are some of the gifts she received.

Talk about a great meeting!  Next month is our retreat up in Kennebunkport Maine and we're all excited for it!


  1. You got great pictures. It's a good thing that you know how to work the settings on your camera, unlike me! Mine were all taken without flash, unknowingly, and are blurry.

  2. That happened to me on vacation once. It sucked. :( Nice work everyone. I love all the quilts, they are beautiful. SO sad I couldn't make it.
