Fiber Folk Mini Group - March Meeting

There is a new Country Quilters mini group called Fiber Folk.  This group meets the 4th Monday of the month at 1:00 in the afternoon.  This mini group promotes quilting art with all types of fibers.
Portrait collage was the theme for the March meeting.  Member were able to choose an image of a face that was stamped on fabric to make their portrait. The creativity flowed by adding fabric and other fibers to finished the collage.

March - March Madness

March Madness at Country Quilters. Members were asked to bring a scrap (size between 5 inch square to 10 inch square, though doesn't have to be square) of "spring-y" fabric. We needed some color after a brutal winter!
Members were placed in random groups and were challenged to make a quilt block on a felt board using all the fabrics in our group, scissors, and painters tape.

 Group one
 Group two
 Group three
 Group four
 Group five
 Here are the blocks the groups came up with.  What a creative group we are!
 Block of the month from last month.

Some of the amazing show and tell projects.

March - 30's Mini Group Meeting

We started a new project this month.  We are making the blocks from Eleanor Burns: Egg Money Quilts. This is a photo of the first block "Old Maid's Puzzle".  Four "Old Maid's Puzzle" blocks were combined to make this one block.  Eleanor's books are so well written.  She has many amazing tricks and short cuts.  The block we will be making next month is Grandmother's Flower Garden.
Theresa finished her gorgeous quilt from our last block of the month project.

A few of the show and tell project.
