January Meeting

Welcome to 2014!  We started off the year with a full house for our first meeting at our new time on the 4th Saturday.

First off, show and tell.  This is where we get to admire our fellow quilters wonderful work.

The rest of the day was devoted to our program Fabric Painting on Whole Cloth Quilts  from Jean McDaniel  (oh, that’s me! Yes, I am also the blog mistress)  Several different quilted blocks, something to appeal to everyone,  were provided and everyone was able to experiment with Derwent Inktense pencils and Neocolor II pastel watercolors.  Each person was able to finish at least one block and sometimes two!
