During my presidency, we grew from 7 members to 54, became a non-profit, and joined the Modern Quilt Guild. We were a new guide so we did not have much money to bring in speakers and therefore relied on our own members for our content.
I am in awe of the talent that we have in our group and so grateful for them to have shared their talents and their time for our guide. I wanted to make a special thank you for each member that contributed to the group that held a chair position and/or presented a presentation, tutorial, or workshop in 2015 and 2016.
Today, I would like to share four mini quilts that I gifted some of our members.
The first mini quilt went to a member who (in addition to many other things) taught a paper piecing workshop. I used the pineapple block I made for the free pineapple block template I have up on Craftsy and finished it into a 6" x 6" finished mini. I straight line quilted the mini following the seams in the block.
The next mini quilt went to a member who taught a gentle curves workshop and a tutorial on facing a quilt. I used the block I made in the workshop to make this mini adding some gentle walking foot curvy lines and some facing. It finished at about 10" x 14".
I made a mini for our vice-president who also had taught a tutorial on raw edge appliqueing while quilting. She likes bright colors and whimsical details so hopefully she likes this 6" x 8" mini made using the technique.
The final mini I am sharing today goes to our secretary and webmaster extraordinaire. For this 8" x 10" mini I used a block I had made in Bill Kerr's modern quilt design class from QuiltCon 2015 along with some of the fancier stitches on my Bernina.
I am linking up to Link a Finish Friday, Whoop Whoop Friday, Thank Goodness Its Finished Friday, Finish It Up Friday, Fabric Frenzy Friday, and Show Off Saturday @ Sew Can She.
