I don't think there was any show & tell except the rugs that were being worked on - so here we go.... Victoria pulled out an old project to do some more on it - I think it's very old fashioned looking.
Sandy is hoping to get this anchor rug done for a granddaughter by Christmas. She has begun hooking the background stripes in the lower right corner of the picture.
Marliss is still working on the rug she started in class with Sharon Smith - love the colors.
This floral is Tonia's design - has her name written all over it.
I missed Angela's little tree skirt for a wool feather tree, and forgot to snap a picture of Cora Lee's Purple Rain rug from Sharon Smith. Sorry gals!
Jeanette was sick and couldn't attend, but she sent me this picture of her dancing elephant rug - all finished! I adore the tulle netting she added to the ballerina's skirt - proddy I'm guessing?
I was a slacker and didn't take a rug at all - instead I was working on two different quilt projects. I recently found three more fabrics that would work great for my English Paper Pieced stars so I fussy cut the diamonds and got one of them stitched together while I was there. Some of the gals didn't know how this worked so they got to see the whole process.
And I brought a stack of 3" 9-patches to square up - I'm really just removing slivers of threads - not large pieces of fabric at all - but I think it helps a lot in accuracy.
I've now got probably 200 of these ready to go - might be time to start assembling the quilt top, but I need to cut a few other pieces of fabric - triangles & large hexies.
When making 4-patches I've often 'spun' the seam intersections, but the pattern I'm using suggested doing that with these 9-patches too - works great to reduce the bulk!
I haven't gotten any decorating done yet for Christmas, but I HAVE almost finished with my shopping, so that's progress, right? LOL
