January meeting photos

Hi everyone,

well, it would be good to see January meeting photos while it is still January, right? Yeah, still in a catching-up mode here...
Anyway... we had our January meeting in Threads of Time quilt shop in Amherst, and had great time.
It was just wonderful to have several new potential members this time and really amazing Show and Tell!
 Just look:
Pam already finished her Riley Blake challenge!

Some cool back and inside details:

My own daughter visited us too, and here is her very own quilt (one that she designed, sewed and was ready to quilt!):

In the meantime she did quilt it - some awesome, first-time free-motion - and bind it too!

Here are several of Linda's beautiful creations:
 Scrap-quilter's dream - window (as in Attic Window pattern) with a view on - SCRAPS! What more can you want? :)

And works in progress - You Got Mail quilt that uses Layer Cake pre-cuts:
 and more ways to use even the tiny scraps - they turn into amazing blocks!
And look at this beauty, made by Stephanie (with block contributions from quilters all over, including Robi!)

Karie wow-ed us with her latest finish - this beauty in neutrals with quilting that simply sings! Now my daughter wants to learn to quilt something like that - YAY!

Devon made this super-cute, super-cuddly quilt with minky on the back - we all need one of these!

Here is Rebecca's rainbow beauty, made just because, and with such a great backing fabric too:

Although, she already did have another backing for now this is...a new quilt? :)

Our own VP of Events, Anne, had a great tutorial for everyone on how she makes her feather blocks, for the Feather Swap we are all doing. Somehow I didn't take photos of Anne working hard, (hey, I was busy paying attention to the tutorial!)  but just look at this beautiful feather block:
And just as all of you who couldn't join us this time are thinking how much fun we had, I have to add a bit more... Just look at these out-of-this-world cookies that we enjoyed and took some home! All made by amazing Pam Wilde!! AAHHH-MAZING!!!
Yeah, you saw that right - we had our very own, WNY MQG cookies!! I am still keeping one all nicely wrapped! (even though they are really delicious to eat too)
This time we also had a great sew-in day in Threads of Time classroom space, but unfortunately I had to leave early, so no pictures from me... if any of you girls who stayed and had fun have any more photos, please send them over and I will update this post! Otherwise - visit our Flickr page (see link on the right!) to see even more photos!
All together, yet another great meeting and fun day! We hope all of you still thinking to come and visit, and maybe even join, will do it next month:
 February meeting is on Feb. 23rd, Sunday, at 1pm, in Orchard Park Library (see the calendar on the right too!)

Stay warm everyone and keep stitching! :)

PS - for all the official stuff, January meeting minutes coming soon!
