I really enjoyed being able to join the group last night via Skype. Hopefully we'll get it figured out to have a 2-way video instead of just one, but at least it was the right way so I could see all the beautiful quilts. And JoAn--oooo-la-la, that is a fantastic sewing room!
As I said last night, I finished a t-shirt quilt for a lady I've worked with at school whose mother passed away a few years ago. It really turned out pretty and I think I've been turned to the "polka-dot side" I found this cute polka dot for the back and I think I'm going to have to start a collection......
Thanks again, for a wonderful night. Glad I could join you all!

|Every month a group of ladies can't wait to get together to be inspired and share what they have been creating. |
This month JoAn was our host and it was fabulous.
|JoAn made these adorable pincushions out of an old quilt. |
What a nice treat for all of us.
|Maryann brought this "Grinch" quilt.|
Great use of the Grinch panel.
|Maryann made this Jellyroll Race quilt made with more strips. Love the small blocks to separate strips.|

|Jeanene finished her BE Quilt also. Jeanene and Glenna both quilted these quilts and used the same method for binding the quilt. You can watch that video Here|
|Jeanene whipped up this Granny Square quilt. The colors did not come out bright enough but it is a very striking quilt.|
|OK the next few quilts will blow you way.|
Jeanene was able to "rescue" these quilts and they couldn't have ended up in better hands.

|True Granny Squares|
