February 2010 Show & Share

Sandy bought a needle-felting machine and took a class by Isabella Hoffman to make this winter wall-hanging.

Theresa found this book which she dug out for her mother. It's the manual for mending.

Someone gave Theresa the knitted cloth, and she turned it into this little purse.

Fabulous Fabric Art with Lutradur by Leslie Riley - Oh the possibilities!

Theresa gave each of us present a square of Lutradur. We're supposed to play with it, color it distress it, stitch--whatever ... and bring it back to show everyone else next month.

Jan 2010 Show & Share

This is a quilt Lois W. made on behalf of all of us at CinC for Katy as she navigates some tricky health issues. It's all about friendship and support. "We're with you, Katy." We had to wait until Katy actually got the quilt before I could post it here. Gill added a tape on the back embroidered with all of our names.

Gill's Star Challenge piece that she made for the Dicken's of a Quilt Show in Ripon, December 2009. The challenge was to use the binding fabric in the challenge piece. Nice job, Gill!

Gill recently acquired a die-cut (Accu-Cut?) machine. At her last quilt retreat, she offered to die-cut fabrics so members could make this apple-core table runner.

Here's another example of how the pieces can be put together.

Lynda brought the hand-made North Carolina dogwood boat shuttles (for weaving) she made with her father.

Michele has been doing some more hand-dying ...
