December Meeting Recap

Wow! What a way to close out 2012!

Right off the bat, we exchanged Scrap Bag Challenge/Swap items. This activity was very well received – several members said they’d love to do this again, and I totally get why! The variety of “makes” was incredible!

Scrap Bag Challenge goodies

There were pin cushions, thread catchers, fabric boxes, name tags, a quilt top, a finished wallhanging (!!), a sewing machine cover, pouches, notebook covers, a Christmas stocking, mini quilts and more…So fun!

We also received our pincushions from the pincushion swap – what an incredibly fast turnaround. We delivered at the November meeting and received our pincushions in December! Special thanks to Arita for driving across the border to pick up the package!

Beautiful pincushions!

Again, the variety and creativity were off the scales.

Happy pincushion swappers

Another really exciting event was the unveiling of the quilt top made with the QuiltCon Challenge Blocks. Didn’t Paul do a wonderful job?
