QBTS October Meeting and Sweet Charity

I was very late in getting back to my Wilmington quilt guild -- Quilters by the Sea.  The first part of our show and tell is always a quick walk through of all the quilts made for the Neo-natal unit at the hospital.  For a guild the size of this one, they do a tremendous number of quilts.  Of course, because of the August heat and Hurricane Florence, there had not been a meeting since July so there were a lot of baby quilts .  Don't you just love some of these!!

 It is hard to get pictures of all the quilts but some people slowed down in front of me.  For some reason, I really liked this quilt a lot!

The following quilts were all part of our Show and Tell.  You can see that Christmas quilts are beginning to creep in!

Pat used the kit from the cancelled September class to make this wall hanging which is just wonderful!!
A very clever wreath.
A good sized tote made with Kaffe Fasett fabrics.

Michelle just got this quilt back from England where it has been for quite some time.  Michelle teaches her techniques nationally and has been our program chair this last year and did a wonderful job!

Another quilt I just love -- scrappy of course!!

 These next three quilts were made as part of the Sweet Charity group.  This was the sample so we new what we were aiming for.

The following two were made in about 3 hours by about six of us.  Four of us were sewing and two were ironing.  It is a very efficient way to work and the results are always so nice and scrappy!!

I worked primarily on this one.
They were basically just triangles with log cabin style strips around the -- just one round though.
