Another Jo's Club Night

Another Jo’s Club Night

It has been so hot in Minnesota with more 90 degree (and a couple of 100s) days than I can remember; not unlike most of the country.  Luckily, last Tuesday night the heat broke and in the upstairs classroom of Glad Creation, Quilt Block the wonderful ladies of Jo’s Club got together to share their quilt work of the last month. 

We always start with cookies and coffee but lemonade or ice tea would be a better choice for our hot summer meetings.  Then the laughter begins.  Someone always gets us going and we have a really fun time.  I’m sure anyone downstairs shopping or working is jealous of our good time. 

There’s loads of creativity and talent in the class. 

Here are a few pictures from the night’s show and tell.  Take a peek at what they’ve done!

The new quilt for July 2012 - "Raspberry Swirl"

Mickey's "Pottery Shards"

Sharlene's 2-color version of "Pottery Shards"

Jane added sashing to "Pottery Shards"

Jane's "Pottery Shard" table runner 
Debbie's version was a copy of an antique doll quilt I brought in paired with the "Pottery Shard" quilt block.  Below a close-up.

Shirley's "Transferware" top

Lynnette was in process of quilting her "Glimmers" quilt

A slightly larger version of "Framed" by Lynnette used 3/4" size squares instead of 1/2" size.  Quite a difference in person.
Mickey with her beautiful Jo's quilt.  Absolutely lovely!!

Julie brought in a quilt just back from the quilter.  The quilting was to represent a river and  it was EXPERTLY done.  I hope you can see the pebbles in the background. 

Some very nice small quilts from Lynette.

More of Lynnette's quilts she bought at a Minnesota Quilter's small quilt auction. 

Happy quilting,
