April 2010 Meeting Alpine Quilt Group

23 comments
Last Tuesday was our April meeting for the Alpine Quilt Group. As always, it was full of inspiration and well attended.
Laurel, our resident gadget girl, showed the Moda pencils that come in all color lead for tracing applique. I have one and I really like it.
Terrible picture, I know. Sorry. Moana substituted for Jina (just home from China!) and brought our May Flower block for the 2010 Alpine Group quilt. More on that later when I get started - maybe next week (my April baskets are done but have to be sewn to the building of the quilt still).




Here is Syd's 2009 Alpine Quilt Group. I MUST get mine done. Syd's is made with mostly wools. I love it.




Judy always makes the most fabulous quilts. I love this fabric. Just spectacular.

This is made from a pattern by Leslie and Norma at Remember When Patterns. They are talented and sweet gals.

This is a really cute bag but the photo is really bad.
Congrats to Kim! She's featured in a Moda add about their patterns on Moda Bakeshop. Yayy Kim.
She made some aprons that are the cutest things. I wanted to steal them. They are cute enough to be framed.
Look at this one! So sweet. She gave one to her new daughter-in-law to symbolize cutting the apron strings.

Stay tuned. Tomorrow Rae Ann and her aprons!

And......as always.....you are right....quilts full of inspiration. Love those aprons. I have aprons I made when I first got married. I should frame one just for fun. :-) Looking forward to Rae Ann's aprons tomorrow!

So fun to see all the beautiful projects. I love your new header, by the way. Very nice!!

What a beautiful group of projects! How fun.

I love your new header design too.

Even with the occasional "bad" photo, your group really shines!!! I am fascinated by the quilt that is black, white, grey and yellow...neat combination of colors that I've not seen in a quilt before. I love everything else, of course, but that really caught my eye as a new combination of colors to use!

I loved seeing the quilts I missed because I was late to show and tell. I'm glad you liked the aprons I made. I fell in love with the fabric.

There are some awesome quilts there and the aprons are so cute. Not very practical for me since I get dirty on the top half but they'd make me look like a cook.

A very talented group you belong to.
I like your new blog heading. Did you sew it or is it computer graphics. Nice either way.
