August - New Techniques

This month Jolene G. showed us her quilts made using the new Quiltsmart technique. I got there late and only saw these last three quilts. It is definitely a method I want to try, especially on a Lone Star pattern.

Here Trisha M. shows us the quick table runner pattern she will teach at our retreat in November. (She owns about a million of these runners!) She uses a "secret" inner layer - not regular batting! Take her class, and you'll find out what it is.

Three years ago Nanette's son entered this little drawing in a competition promoting sun screen. He won, and three years later his design is on some notecards. These can be ordered online; the money goes toward helping kids with skin conditions go to camp. Isn't that cool??

The rest of these are Show N Tell quilts. Beautiful, n'est-ce pas?!
