January Meeting Alpine Quilt Group

34 comments
Our first meeting of the year was a complete sell-out. Not a seat left in the room. It was nice to have some new faces. Paula and Flora always say some people try us out and they "stick" and some just drift away. Everyone is welcome at our quilt group. We meet the last Tuesday of every month (except December) at 8:00 PM.
Jina and Paula discussing our group quilt for the year 2010. Jina has designed it and the quilt blocks are free for anyone. Jina has put the instructions online. You can access them here. Jina (one of our local celebrity quilters) designed the quilt and each month we are supposed to make one block to keep up. I really want to make this quilt so I'd better carve out the time!
Paula is in charge this year. Paula is funny and amazing with incredible style. Look at this lovely coat she made. Unbelievable. It has pink satin lining.
Here is Jina's Alpine Quilt Group Turning 20 Years quilt she finished from 2009. I love it. Black sets off the sampler blocks so well. That Jina, she sure is talented.
And look at her border. So unique and well done. Bravo Jina. Now onto Show-n-Tell.
I was talking so I missed photographing Flora's other 2 quilts. Darn. She made this one for her daughter Annie.
I love wonderful applique like this. The colors and pattern are just so artistic.
Judy belongs to the few of us that can quilt to perfection both in piecing and in hand quilting. You should see her work up close. It is simply breathtaking.
I've always wanted to make this quilt pattern, or one like it. Someday.
Another one by Judy. Can you believe this! She stitches just as well as she does everything else.
Yvonne's valentine quilt. Very sweet.
Moana made this quilt for her last son when he finished his Eagle Scout Project. The fabric is perfect - Scouting fabric.
Jodi's wavy quilt. Jodi does curves so well. You could say Jodi's curvaceous!
Jodi used this Riley Blake fabric to make this big star quilt. It is king sized.
Laurel made this design from a quilting magazine. Laurel's blocks are so incredibly precise.
I love the sail boats. They look like rain drops.
This is a vintage baby quilt from Lorri's brother. She's got such a great selection of vintage quilts.
Sammi was our guest speaker. She used to be a local gal and she came back to show us her beautiful quilts. You can see another view of Paula's fabulous coat there, too.
Sammi loves log cabin, as do we all. She said this is one of her favorites that has been washed and used and loved.
Square in a square pattern. I love this pattern, too. Sammi travels a lot with her job and takes her featherweight with her and sews on the go for herself and her big family.
Another square in a square. Isn't the orange lovely?

I had to leave early at 9:00 so I didn't catch the rest of Sammi's show. Darn it. I had some other photos, too. But I left out the blurry ones. That always happens to me. Quilt night is always so fun.

Don't worry about not remembering my name. I still only know a handful of people but I try to remember one more each meeting. Which means with 70 or so people I will know everyone's name around 2030. The sailboats and the flowers are both from the book Baby Love.

Oh thank you for sharing. So much wonderful to see here. Jodi's CURVE QUILT really has managed to capture my imagination though. I think I'm going to have to let this sit... It's taking me away, nanette. Ruh Roh...

I think you and Lori need to bottle the water there. NOBODY has better show-n-tells than you and Lori. Sigh.
