Quilt guild Christmas party

Last night was our quilt guild Christmas party, the table decorations were so cute, the chairman's made quilted snowmen table mats with different snow people figurines on each table, at the end of the party different members won them (not me).

Another one.

Mary, one of our chairman was given this quilt made by the board as a thank you as she steps down.

I don't know this ladies name but she showed a series of pictures of pears her mother painted. Her sister and her split the pictures up and each made quilt blocks representing the different pear pictures. Then sewed the blocks together.

This is a picture of the finished quilt. Some are appliqued, painted, embellished etc. I wish I was closer to get better pictures.

Jamie made this table runner, the snowflake fabric is a batik, it is so striking.

This is the same batik in another color way she made. She hasn't quilted it yet.

Jamie's son is married to a girl from Japan. Jamie made this quilt as a gift to his mother-in-law. This is reproduction Japanese yukata cloth, used in rural Japan for casual comfy clothing.
