Meeting night

Typically, at each meeting once general business has been taken care of there's "Show and Tell" and sewing or knitting.  Or sometimes just gossiping and laughing! Warning...this post has lots of photos!

Last night we had a few quilts for show and tell.  Annie has pieced this Just Takes 2 quilt.  You use a variety of techniques to make up this mystery sampler quilt and the website tells you all about the history behind it too.

Di started this floral quilt at the retreat last year.  Di loved the fabric and drafted the pattern for this quilt herself.
I kind of made the next quilt.  It's from my Chinese Whispers challenge where my clue was "Crazy scrappy makes me happy"  I'm so pleased with how it came together even though my own block ended up on the back as the label because it doesn't fit with any of the other blocks that work so well together!  I tied the quilt with beads. 
After show and tell I went around the table and took snapshots of what everyone was working on.
Here's Beryl hand stitching her Shirt Challenge quilt.
