Charlene started off show ‘n tell with a wall hanging that has travelled the world with her.  She has worked on this hand pieced wall hanging as a travel project.  Amazing, all those little stitches!

Brenda enjoys challenges.  She joined an online group that have monthly challenges.  The challenge in the month of May was “hand”.  Then in June it was “lyrical” and this leads her to the many Broadway musicals that they have attended in New York.  Also if you want a walk down memory lane….Brenda has a blog entry on her blog with numerous pictures of the quilt show  http://brendaswitwalking.blogspot.ca/2016/05/crocus-quilters-amazing-show.html .    Just click this url and you will get to her blog entry. If the link only takes you to her blog site just go to the home button and then find the May entry. Thank you Brenda!!!

Michele has joined the same internet group.  The first piece is her interpretation of “lyrical”.  The second piece is inspired by a common scene while taking highway 33 home from Regina.  It is titled “After the Harvest”.

Vera went digging in her stash and has created this string quilt which she intends to donate.  She is searching for an organization that will accept it. The back is as beautiful as the front.  It really is two quilts, reversible!

Esther still had some blocks around from the Creative Curve class.  She used them for pillow covers.  The second block she used the “what if principle?”  What if I cut this block….what will I get?  She got a very interesting block that looks so intricate. Very inspiring!!  Does anyone else have orphan blocks.  It is a perfect opportunity to try the “what if…” principle on them.  What do you have to lose???

Sharynne finished crocheting this lovely baby blanket for her great-neice.  This will make for a super soft cuddle! Enjoy!!

Lydia pulled pinks from her stash and created this quilt for her granddaughter.  She used the disappearing 9 patch and paired it with hearts.  Remnants and an orphan block makes a very interesting back.

Lydia is holding two projects that she has completed recently.  The first, is a table runner that was a pattern she found “Free” on the internet.  She said, “I wish we never found it!”  The directions were so poorly written they needed to rewrite, redesign and I’m sure they needed some quilting juice to get through this one!!!

The wreath project was described with much more calm in Lydia’s voice.  That one she enjoyed doing.

Lydia is showing the Christmas stocking that she has taught the class for.  She is willing to teach the class again if anyone is interested.  Let her or the program people know it you are interested (Leeanne Anderson or Charlene Wimmer).  They are also open to hosting other classes.  Let them know what you want.
