november meeting recap.

Hello, Hello! How's everybody doing? Still basking in the glow of all of those Pearl Bracelet bundles?? Me too! If you weren't able to join us for the November meeting, here's what you missed:

We started the meeting by getting right down to business with our guest speaker, Mr. Giuseppe Ribaudo (more affectionately known as Giucy Giuce on Instagram). Giuseppe shared some of his greatest hits. Feast your eyes on these rainbow-ed beauties -- all in color order, of course!

What Shade Are You? Quilt

And the back. . .

Up Quilt (made for fall quilt market with Alison Glass Handcrafted Fabrics -- also on the cover of Generation Q magazine!)

And, last but not least, Giuseppe shared a quilt that he had received back from the longarmer (the uber-talented Karlee Porter) that very morning. They plan to submit the quilt for entry to Quilt Con, and you can now view the finished quilt HERE.

After Giuseppe's presentation, he generously gifted all of the members with bundles of Lizzy House's Pearl Bracelets! Woo hoo!

Thank you, Andover, and thank you, Giuseppe!

Next up, Carol reviewed the directions for this month's block of the month.

Finally, we had show and share, where Karen wowed us with all of the quilts she made using two-inch squares -- all to prevent the thread in her machine from getting tangled when she starts her stitch!

 . . . another. . .
 and another!
 Julie shared some early *coordinating* holiday gifts:
 Karen shared a clever plus quilt made using the versatile nine patch:
 And Judy shared her cleverly constructed quilt using hexagons.

It was another great meeting! Thanks to all who came out to support our guild!
