Tuesday was a great GCQ guild meeting. Members who participated in the Nov. challenge showed their work. I’m sorry I did not take photos of them. Projects ranged from single blocks to complete table runners and small quilts. The theme was “international”. I paper-pieced a Japanese girl. At this time I don’t have plans for her.
Show and tell was great as usual. We have so many talented ladies. The program was an art quilt trunk show from 2 members. They shared some of their early pieces and recent work. It was very nice.
Today I took a little time for some yard work and then finished another quilt project that will be a Christmas present so I won’t show it. Then I played with scraps and made 2 potholders.
I spent some time on a fabric hunt. My granddaughter has requested that I make her a sparkly twirl-ly dress that she can wear to preschool. I was hoping to find some sparkly fabric that could be machine washed. Almost everything I found said to hand wash or dry clean. I did find one that said to use a cold wash and did not specify by hand. I’m still searching.
