Has it really been since July? I have a lot of catching up to do here and I'm wondering if I'll ever get out of this cycle.? Let's hope for the best. Thank you for being so patient with me. Get settled in - this is going to be a long post. I do have so many great photos to share with you from the August and October Modern Fabric Group Therapy Meetings ~ We had to take September off due to the Quilt! Carolina Shop Hop, which I understand was a huge success.
Ok, Let's get started. August MF Therapy was a ton of fun as we Spotlighted the spirited Heather Z. I feel safe saying that we're all wondering where Heather gets her energy. She ventures tirelessly from one craft to the next and always brings a smile and one of her projects and sometimes a demo to share with the group. Thank you Heather.
Heather draws names for the Giveaways ~ look at her cute skirt!
We had a fabulous quilt block inspired pin cushion Swap ~ Tamoe and Janet show off their loot. Very nice work ladies.
Sheri shows off a pretty quilt she just finished for a client. Love it!
We always have fantastic Show & Tell and Thanks to Amy, we also have photos to share. Thanks Amy.
Tamoe shares a little something she whipped up. This woman is seriously intimidating with her precision work. Jenny shows off the cute Amy Butler halter top and Portable Ironing Board Kit she won! Big winner that day ~ Go Jenny!
Look how cute these ladies are ~ and loaded with heaps of talent too! Doesn't it make you want to join our Modern Fabric Group Therapy club? I thought so. I always leave group therapy feeling overwhelmed with ideas. Please join us.
Let's move on to our October meeting... We had the marvelous Joan Schnute/Quilt Binding Extraordinaire as our Spotlight this month.
Everyone loved hearing all about the amazing adventures Joan has experienced in her life so far and really enjoyed seeing all the beautiful quilts she brought to share. Take a look for yourself: Joan's Color Therapy Quilt... formerly called the Colorstrology Quilt. I love how she used a unique fabric patch in the center of each block. Cool circle quilting by Sheri aka Maxine and Me Longarm Quilting.
Fun quilt top Joan made with a Kona jellyroll. An oldie but a goodie ~ Joan's log cabin she made years ago.
Hand tied flag quilt ~ awesome! Pretty pink quilt top Joan made for one of her granddaughters by request.
Joan's incredible City Sampler quilt she made in Lee's popular Tula Pink class. Wow! Barbara wins one of Joan's handmade holiday ornaments. Thank you Joan for being so cool. I shared my lovely "K" quilt, which was a gift from the Triad Modern Quilt Guilt to me ~ made by the amazing Kelly. Thank you Triad MQG ~ I love it! Carrie shares this vintage inspired beauty with the group, along with her wonderful Log Cabin the group collectively worked on this year. Pretty.
Carole shares some gorgeous things she's been working on with Amy Butler's Glow Collection. Navy looks great with these beautiful fabrics.
Janet's Checker board & piece pouch. I don't think it's too early to start thinking about handmade holiday gifts. Good idea Janet! Check out Janet's Log Cabin (front & back) she made using fabrics by Bonnie Christine.
Here's Miranda Log Cabin, which I love ~ the photo is a little blurry but I think you can still see how amazing it is. Love all these Log Cabins!
This is Tamoe's log cabin she shared this month. More intimidation. I really don't know how this woman produces so much perfection.? Oh, and by the way I think Tamoe made 3 of the Quilty log cabins and a City Sampler this year too. What a show off. ;) I think Laura quilted this masterpiece.
And lastly, let's talk about these adorable Tuffets! So unbelievably cute, right? You can make one of your very own in Sheri's 2-Day Tuffet Workshop, although I know she currently has a waiting list ~ she's a popular girl. If you want to be added to the waiting list, contact Sheri at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It's been nice getting caught up here. I am looking forward to our November MFGT meeting on November 12th at The Little General from 12:30 - 2:00pm. We will be spotlighting the unstoppable Tamoe Minami. Please feel free to join us and bring a friend too. It's fun.
See you soon, karen
