Member’s Showcase: Barbara Cleveland

Barbara’s favorite craft is making dolls. Each year, Barbara has at least one new doll to the Annual Heirloom Quilt Faire, making her (or his) début.

At our May 21st meeting, Barbara agreed to bring her favorite dolls to share, not only the beautiful dolls but their stories, with us.

Bring Chocolate

That is what our quilters guild calendar said on Feb 12th. After listing our usual announcements, and the day’s activities, there it was. In bold print – Bring Chocolate to Share

We did – and then some.  Even the Hershey twins joined us and passed out Hershey’s mini candy bars.

They were a surprise – not on our calendar.

 

For Sew & Tell we had these quilts on the walls:

Deanna Hoy’s T-shirt quilt – made from her brother’s rock & roll concert T-shirts. Quilted by RoxAnne Borean.

The following items on the wall do not have photos (yet):

Eileen Roberson. Black and tan, rectangles made from free-table scraps.

Pat Gomes. Raggedy Quilts one from Country Cloth Class, two from free table.

 

This quilt is a collage of California’s National Parks. Linda Van B. made it. [She may be hiding behind it]
