Check out this fantastic quilt that was lovingly crafted for this year’s Quilt Fest. The quilt measures 70″ x 80″ and the opportunity tickets are only $1.00 per ticket, with all proceeds going the the Neptune Beach Senior Center! Wouldn’t this beautiful creation be perfect in your home!
Its been a week since we returned from the Ocala retreat and almost everything is put away in the sewing studio! It was a full week with creative quilting, laughter, and friendship. Not only did we sew but we also painted on fabric – thanks to Alice for our lesson!
Every morning we were up early and sewing though the day until often late at night. The food was yummy and lots of it – not to mention the piano snacks! We are looking forward to seeing all those finished projects at this week’s meeting.
The door decorating contest was fun with really clever ideas. The PALMs won with their beach theme.
The gallery of art!
A rousing game of Left-Right-Center. Michelle walked away the winner of a HUGE stack of fat quarters!
The PALMs surprised everyone with an afternoon ‘donut’ break!
Thanks to Sue and Kathy for hosting a super event – looking forward to 2019 – the date is already set!
Jane and Diane report: “15 amazing quilters attended this past Saturday-Sew which resulted in 15 awesome bags. We stopped briefly for lunch and then back to the project. It was great going back in time …this was a project Dot Woods taught us years ago. Sometimes old projects are important to share with new people in the Guild.”
Flavin Glover did not disappoint in her classes at Coastal Quilters this month. These classes have been in the planning for many months and on January 12 and 13 the days arrived! Flavin shared her quilts and the techniques for creating her designs. Using grids and a little coloring time, the patterns emerged. Starting from a tiny 1″ or 1 1/4″ square and adding strip by strip the log cabin designs developed into little houses, villages and seaside cottages. We are all grateful to Ginger and Yvonne for arranging great lunches so we could keep at our work after a brief break to eat and enjoy the camaraderie of our quilting friends.
Some comments from the classes:
“The blocks came together much more quickly than I could have imagined!”
“Great class, loved all her tips and beautiful quilts ! Enjoyed her sense of humor and the getting to know you segment at the end.”
“Can’t wait to see how my quilt turns out”
