Barbara Freeland designed a white tree with a cross backing for an ill friend . Mary Nienhuis used an Aztec design for a wedding quilt while Marie Yutendale finished 2 quilts in Florida. Nora Slikkers showed her colorful scrap quilt and Barb Sucher used Sue Cortese ‘s method of piecing to design a baby quilt.
Our demo night was an inspiration to all of us to try new techniques and not throw out pieces of fabric – just give them to Nora as she will turn the scraps into art! There was a lovely charity quilt also displayed. Be inspired and Quilt!!!
Barb Sucher- using a flange as a method of edging and decoration. Carol Vinnedge demonstrates the use of a flat facing binding used on the quilt back – technique by Carol Taylor. We all learned so many new ideas and techniques!!
