Zippered Pouch Swap:
We had 11 members participate in a zippered pouch swap. Everyone who participated brought a finished zippered pouch to the meeting in a paper bag, then got to choose a bag for themselves. There was quite a variety of pouches, from embellished pouches to wide mouth and triangular pouches. It was great to have such enthusiasm for this swap!
Show and Tell:
Christy's Dr. Seuss quilt for charity
Jane with a lovely quilt made for a young lady who is graduating
Lois with two darling isolettes made from jelly rolls
Shelly with a super cute baby blanket...
and a great picnic blanket....
that zips up into it's own carrying bag!
(Yes, Shelly, you seriously need to write a pattern for this!)
Lynn with her framed Dresden Plates
(Great idea, Lynn!)
Sandy with lovely embroidered Chrstmas quilt
Pam with another stinkin' cute pillow

Program: QuiltCon Recap
QuiltCon was held in Austin, back in February and we had 8 members attend. Christy, Lynn, Nicci, Pam and Sandy P. shared some of their QuiltCon experiences with the group. Pam shared a slideshow that included photos of many of the quilts on display, as well as a few shots from the '80's Dance Party.
