October Meeting 10-18-2011

We had a great meeting in October, lots of show and tell and 2 of our very own  members gave the program. Sharon and Carmen both had a trunk show and told us how they started quilting and the progress that they have made on their journey. Sharon wants to concentrate on her artistic background and embellishments. So she is experimenting with art quilts and lots of beading and other forms of embellishing.  She had some stunning examples as shown below. After Sharon oohed and aahed us, Carmen took the floor and told us some of her quilting experiences. Carmen goes to a lot of auctions and finds some great quilt bargins. Even if the quilt is tattered and torn, Carmen believes it deserves a nice home and she honors whoever took the time to make the quilt. And then she makes her own amazing quilts also. The basket quilt in the center of the collage is one that Carmen made and she considers it the best quilt that she has made so far.  It is very stunning and has lots and lots of hand quilting in it. Thanks so much to both Sharon and Carmen for a geat program and letting us see their wonderful quilts. Our own talented members had some great show and tell as we always do every month.  This pumpkin village is an original design from Delores and was really cute  and clever.  
I am not going to name the rest of these projects but just hope you enjoy looking at them as much as we did.
