Christmas Gift Ideas

The November meeting of the Quilts R Us guild was an evening of sharing Christmas gift ideas.  Guild members shared patterns and ideas for quick go to gifts they make for those on their gift lists.  One idea was the quick Christmas tree pictured below shared by Debbie Powell.   
Members enjoyed yummy snacks brought by Eileen Davison, BK McCloud, Lynn Currin and Belinda Leach.  Winner of Fat Quarter Frenzy was Georgia Darnell. Sarah Baskerville won the gift certificate raffle. The drawing for the trip to the Mid Atlantic Quilt Show in Hampton, VA was held with Karen Hanny's name being drawn as the winner.
Donna Compton shares her quilt, "Crown of Thorns".
Kathy Solomon shows her completed Quilt in a Box from last years challenge.
 Eileen Davison shares one of her painting quilts.
Eileen also shows a baby quilt she made with Dr. Seuss fabric.
Belinda Alston showed some quick flannel quilts she made for babies.

The guild's Christmas celebration will be held December 9.  The Christmas committee has been working hard to put together a Chinese Auction and dinner for the members.  It will be a fun evening, so plan to attend.
