Show and Tell

Linda Kay held her class on the Christmas Tote last Tuesday and took a photo of the finished projects!
Linda Williams and Barbara Moore

Tote Club is a fun monthly class that offers a new "tote" each time.

Next month's project will be a small sewing notion "tote" that holds your marking tools, small scissors, ripping stick, you know.... all the small things that tend to get lost in the shuffle or under a pile of fabric on your cutting table.

Kay Guillot came in for Applique Society and brought with her this terrific Show and Tell:

Her 11 year old granddaughter was in town for a visit and together they held their own "quilt camp". Sarah Duley pieced and quilted this beautiful batik 9 patch. I am told she also chose the fabric selection as well. It looks like another quilter has embraced the craft. Welcome, Sarah, to the club.

Now for a fun and silly parody, please read this article: The First Rule of the Quilting Society

If you need a tidbit to sample:

You don't cut more than four layers of fabric at the same time. You keep an eye out for cuts containing fabric fibers, as this is a sign of a worn-out blade. You keep your blade covered when not in use and out of the reach of little hands at all times, because safety is paramount. And you don't talk about the quilting society.

Ah, good stuff!
