September Meeting

We had a fabulous meeting today.  Twenty one quilts (and several books) were turned in for the Log Cabin Challenge to benefit the Kennedy Kreiger Early Head Start center.  We had a large variety from very modern to very cute!  The kids will love them!  They will be hung at the Kennedy Kreiger Institute in Baltimore in October and then given to the babies in the Head Start Program.

Janet Schoenfeld wasn't able to be at the meeting but here is her quilt.

Sorry I didn't remember all the names!  Please tell us in the comments if you see yours!

Here are the two blogs mentioned at the meeting today:

Flying Blind on a Rocket Cycle  is a British blog written by the witty Hadley.  She is a modern quilter.

The Inbox Jaunt is written by a quilter named Lori.  She has FMQ tutorials which are a little different and easy to follow.  They are more motifs than all over patterns but I find it very interesting how she breaks down the steps.

Bee blocks were exchanged (lots of nice ones!).  Leftover charm swaps were available.  Three people made aprons and exchanged them (sorry I didn't get pictures).  The participants in the Round Robin brought in their assignments and got new ones.


  1. Looks like such a great meeting! Would love to have people link up to 100 Quilts for Kids if they want :)

  2. I think I have two sets of charms to pick up. I didn't want to take anything when I dropped off my bee blocks because I wasn't sure if anyone else needed theirs!

  3. I forgot to pick up my charms. :(
    The first two photos - Dr. Seuss front and back are mine. The two after the back of Amy's quilt are also mine - back and front - elephants - teal, blue, lime.
