Alpine Girls Quilt Group November 2009

Two weeks ago was our last meeting of the year for our Alpine Quilt Group. It is a busy time of year and I missed seeing several friends. Flora has outdone herself this year and I'm so grateful to her for all the work she puts in for our group. And I'm really excited for 2010 and our new project.
Jina Barney, one of our local quilt celebrities, designed the sampler quilt we will be working on next year. You can make the quilt along with us. Every month Jina will give us the block and it can be found here. The quilt is wonderful and blocks coordinate with months and seasons.
Jina showed it in browns. Doesn't it look fun to make? It looks like my kind of quilt.
Jina also showed it in blacks. I think I'll sew the black version. Jina works with Riley Blake and Alpine Fabrics. We are so happy to have her in our group. Jina's blog is here.Another local celebrity is Kim. Kim's blog is Bitty Bits and Pieces. Kim designs for Moda Bakeshop, too. Kim showed us fun things we can make for Christmas right from the Moda Bakeshop site. I was so entranced with Kim's show-n-tell from projects she has made for and from the Bakeshop that I forgot to take pictures! Yikes.
When she was all done I realized it and quickly snapped a few shots of her cute and interesting Christmas tree and the tree skirt pattern she made from a Moda Bakeshop Pattern.
I love the fabrics Kim used and someday when I have a chance I want to make this tree skirt for a small Christmas tree. I like making wedges.
We did have some group show-n-tell. I really like how these blocks are set on point. The quilt is so colorful and interesting.
Halloween ready for next year!
Melissa designed this quilt herself.
Debbie made this quilt for a friend. It really turned out very sweet.
I've always wanted to make this quilt. I have the pattern. It is just fabulous. Sharon you did such a good job.
I really like the "Eye Spy" triangles. What a great gift.
Helen always wows us with her applique. Get a load of that border!

Until next January . . . it will be fun to start a new year. Good Luck Paula. Flora can rest for a bit.
