December Meeting

Due to last months inclement weather, our meeting had to be rescheduled to the following week. Even with the impending holidays, we had a great turnout. Our block challenge was a success as you can see in the photo below. Suzanne was the lucky winner, and we look forward to seeing what she makes out of them.

Our next challenge is paper piecing, and was inspired by several things. The first being Terri and Sharon's  paper pieced owls.

The next was this fabulous heart quilt

Thus our challenge for January is Paper Pieced Hearts. You can print out the pattern at this link:
Scroll down until you see eight hearts, and print out the one you like on printer paper. 
There is more information on our Facebook page under Events. 

Other show and tell at the meeting included:

Our next meeting will take place this coming Sunday, January 12 from 10:30-12:30 at the studio of Christina Blaise at the American Fabric Arts building, 1069 Connecticut Avenue in Bridgeport. Bring a folding chair as she has space but limited seating. 

Until then, Happy Quilting!
