January Quilt Group 2012

We were all glad to get together again after not meeting in November and December.
Glenna Reporting:
Mary Ann opened her home to us and it so fun to see all her quilts and the fun things she has in her home.
 Mary Ann is showing her Christmas Packages Quilt. 
With a Bow on Top. 
 Such a great idea.
Mary Ann also told us about her new project. 
 "The Farmers Wife" Quilt.
 She just whipped up 35-40 blocks already.  
Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

This is my Christmas Package Quilt.  I call it" Grandma's Gifts".
I just happened to have 25 Grandchildren  in 2011.
I did put a few extra on the back just in case.

My "Scrappy Quilt" Blocks ready to sew together.
 8.5 inches and I am doing 9x9.

Peg brought some packages from her new business "Snaps!"  Cookies and treats for any occasion.
 Give her a call.

Jeanene brought this wonderful "Pinwheel"
So simple but fabulous.
Quilted by Kit.

Little treat bag Jeanene made. Co Cute! 

Maryann has been doing lots of sewing for others.  She made 24 of the stockings for Christmas.
 Maryann and Rachelle made tons of Christmas Tree Ornaments for the "Sunshine Acres" Children Home for Christmas.
Maryann also made a huge move during the holidays.
We all love your positive attitude Maryann.

This just might be a quilt for her new bedroom.  

Maryann found some things while moving and brought 4 of her "Round Robin" Quilts form her quilt group in Florida.

Rachelle made these two baskets we learned to make in October.
Great patterns made with her fabric.

Rachelle is always good to do the Planet Patchwork New Years Mystery Quilt.  They post the instructions on-line on New Years day.  Great job Rachelle.
