December Meeting

A bit late, but I wanted to get the awesome show and tell items from December up on the blog. We had a lovely relaxed holiday meal with no business, but lots of fun quilts and gifts. Enjoy!

Also, correct me if I'm wrong about who made some of these gift exchange items!

Janine made a cute banner for Holly.

 Jessica made this pillow for Christine.

Ellen made Janine a pretty divided basket. 

Holly made Sheila an amazing quilted pillow.

  Sheila made this cute pouch for Teresa.

Teresa made a great bag for Carole

Kayla made Amy a very cool star ornament. 

Cassandra was lucky enough to get Jill's Sew Together bag. 

And Jill got TWO cutie dachshunds from Cass!

Amy made me a great sewing machine mat and a bag. 

What a great year for Secret Santa! You can't lose with this group :)

Carrie showed two recent baby quilts...

And two pretty Rock Candy quilts she made as gifts. 

Kathy's cute Christmas table runner.

 Gillian was especially busy this month with her 16 patch, Swoon, and Modern Maples quilts. 

Pam did a wonderful job making a pretty quilt with team colors.
