January 12, 2014

Quilt Guild day is a day I look forward to
each month.  A couple of hours to get
inspired by like minded women who are
eager to teach and learn.
Today, Christina Blais, a quilter,
fabric artist, teacher and so much more,
opened her studio to us and shared with us her art.

This was her very first piece, 
Mr. Sun.

Then she made,
Mrs. Moon

One of her latest creations and winner,
celebrating the 100th Anniversary
of Grand Central Station, New York City.

Every month, we have
Show and Tell.
This is Sharon's owl quilt
she is making for a donation
to the annual 
Bird House Auction
put on by Project Return.

Sherri loved paper piecing and made 
two pieces for her friend 
who lives in Texas.

Michelle is a fabulous quilter and quilted
this wonky block quilt on her 
new machine with a continual
"eight" pattern.

Suzanne loves to make small quilts.
She is hoping to be able to give these
 lovely quilts to a grandchild someday...

Each month we are inspired by something
someone has shared.  Last month Sharon
 and I talked about our love of 
paper piecing.  Sharon and I put 
together a small tutorial about
paper piecing and everyone made 
a paper pieced heart.  Easy, fun and oh so cute!
Then, who ever has made a block, puts her name 
in the hat and one lucky winner takes home
all of the blocks.  This month, I was
the lucky winner!!!  Now, to make 
something wonderful using all of the 
great hearts made by our members.

Next month, we are each bringing a wonky
block using spring colors. 
The following month, we are going to try and make
a swirl like this, using the process Christina 
showed us, combining fiber arts
and quilting!
