November Q2 Meeting

Quilters Squared met last night - a nice turnout and show and tell featured some great pieces by our guild members.  (There is a new slide show up - just click on one of the pictures and you will go to Flickr where you can see many of our pictures.)   Marcia Stanick was the lucky winner of the door prize which was a cute nutcracker all decked out in a sewing themed outfit.   Karen Gruber furnished the prize this month.

Yesterday was a class taught by Darlene Leosh  and the gals who took the class all lined up and did a show and tell of what they had accomplished.  From the smiles and comments, it appears that it was a fun, productive day for all those in attendance. 

Darlene also presented the program - showing and telling about her beautiful quilts and jackets that she has made.

Sorry it's fuzzy - this was my very favorite so wanted to put it in.

This last picture is of a reproduction of an old "tile" quilt.  Just absolutely gorgeous.  Darlene also had many beautiful jackets to show and will be teaching a jacket making class next year.  Count me in on that one!   Thank you for a great program, Darlene.
