October Quilt Group 2012

Great Meeting tonight!
Thanks to Mary Ann O.
Tonight it was all about Halloween!

Mary Ann had us all bring: one fat quarter of orange fabric and one of brown.
We made a fun pumpkin project.

Everyone finished at least one block and now we are ready to applique.

Everyone working and visiting.

Mary Ann had the pattern and supplies.

Busy working

Maryann finished this fabulous quilt just in time for Halloween.
We were all Green with Envy.

Peg is binding her
"Sweet Baby Jay"

...and finished a quilt she has had in her "to finish next" pile.

I (Glenna) had nothing to show this month so I brought a quilt I made  (eight) years ago.
Made for daughter when she started teaching school.
I think I am ready to make my own
"Back to School "Quilt.

The Label is signed by her students

Debbie brought her Red White and Blue Quilt.
So bright and cheerful.
