Saturday, March 20, 2021 is International Quilt Hanging Day this year. Here's a taste of the beautiful quilts our members had hanging that day.
Eleaner is happy to finish this beautiful magenta medallion quilt, her design, her colours, her own hand quilting.
Deb has a great tutorial on paper piecing and the hint of the month here.
Our quilters continue to keep busy. Here are some of our latest creations:
Dale just finished sewing this little fabric basket. I found the instructions on the Craftsy website.
Donna just finished this recently, complete with yard (metre) stick for hanging. There is an ice rink at the Delaware farm and I found this row by row when cleaning the sewing room.
It has an appropriate place to go.
Several members participated in the Mystery Quilt online workshops. Below you can see the beautiful results of the following members: Dale, Debbie, Maria, Mary, Judi, Meribeth, Louise, Linda, Marlene, Yvette, Julie, Mary Lou, Gail, Jane and Susan.
Donna waited for Christmas to be over and started this quilt on January 4. When the top was finished, she had hardly noticed the lockdown or snow storms.
It will be a gift for her daughter whose farm is called Star Point Farms in Carrollton, Georgia. "I think it is appropriate and can’t wait for the time to come to deliver it there. Thanks to the Program Coordinators for arranging this Mystery Quilt project with Laurie."
Ellen now has her mystery quilt done and says,
"It's too bad my unpicker ran away with a travelling spool. Said 'enough!' It needs a break. So I think it's run off to Bora Bora where it won't be overworked. Farewell unpicker, I have fond memories of this quilt being one of kind."
Deb has the tip of the month and great scrap quilt suggestions. Go here to find her ideas.

Another Virtual Show and Share is coming up in January.
Winter and Christmas projects will be featured.
Our Covid Show and Share Online Quilt Show is here.
In spite of the negative side of Covid, there are aspects that are quite positive, such as the opportunity to use technology to connect with people all over the place. Deb Gorman-Smith and Andrea Manias just finished a fantastic course online called:
Abstract-a-licious with Lyric Montgomery Kinard.
At the end she highly recommended the following website:
