Brown Bag Project

In September several members participated in the Brown Bag Exchange.
They were to bring a bag with fat quarters and exchange with another member. 
They had two months to make something from the fat quarters in the bag
and this month was the reveal! 
All the projects turned out beautiful and all of the recipients
were very pleased.  

Robin Moody created this for Becky Martin
Becky Martin made this table runner for Doniene Fullagar
Doniene Fullagar made this wall hanging and stuffed pumpkins for Vickie Mazurek
Vickie Mazurek made this table runner for Wanda Jackson
Wanda Jackson made this embroidered pillow and candle mat for Debra Revay
Debra Revay made this table runner for Robin Moody
Joy Ivy made these fabric bowls for Sherry Benbow
Sherry Benbow created this for Millie Schwab
Millie Schwab made this Thanksgiving table runner for Joy Ivy

This is one talented group of ladies!  Each of these projects is wonderful!

November 2014 Monthly Meeting

Becky Martin was the winner of the pink string blocks! OK, maybe
this wasn't such a surprise. We all wanted to honor Becky who has been in treatment for
breast cancer, so we might have stuffed the ballot box with her name :-) 

Doris Rice was the winner of the gold fat quarters
The penny auction winners! 
Doris Rice won the fabric Christmas ornaments
Jeanie Ortegon won the Christmas tree wall hanging.
Robin Moody won the drawstring bag.
Wanda Jackson was a door prize winner!  A pin cushion that fits over the
arm of a chair.
Ruby Goodwin was also a door prize winner!  She won a
book on applique.
