PTA - February

We met at the home of Linda Cantrell for our February PTA agenda except, talking, laughing, eating and sharing work which is always one of my favorite meetings. This is some fun group and I never fail to come away with a stomach ache from laughing and eating so much along with tons of inspiration.
 We recently had our community quilt day at guild which 4 of us attended. Kate and Lynne brought back some of the quilts they started that day. Kate also made some on her own which she really enjoys doing. One day, I'm going to pin her down to find out how many "philanthropy" quilts she makes each year...a lot, I know.
 Kate used the same pattern as the one used at guild only with different proportions. Each center was a circus theme and the borders all bright colors. Some lucky little child will get this one.
 Lynne shared her finished quilt which was fun and colorful.
 Marene shared her latest projects - beautifully pieced, perfect points...
 She's wanting to incorporate 4 smaller medallions into the larger piece and brought them along for some input -  which I shoulc add... this group has an abundance of.
 And another pattern she is working on...
 some great fabric choices.
 Georgia shared some pillows she is making using decorator fabric samples - a beautiful mixing of prints.
 We all loved the button treatment...
 Georgia will have these for sale in her new booth at the Curbside Market in Hendersonville which for now is open on Thurs and Sat. They will be available with or without pillow forms. What a great idea for those people passing through, dealing with luggage... to have that option.
 Linda had an unusual show and tell ...but we all loved it and thought they might do well in a wet studio. There's a ton of them on a roll and unlike regular paper towels...very sturdy.
Home improvement stores carry them and I'm fixin to get me a box....Til next time.
