Choo Choo Quilters: Kicking off the new year

More Cuddle Quilts turned in at the January meeting.
The Choo Choo Quilters started off 2015 with a big pile of completed Cuddle Quilts! This is the community service project for our guild. The quilts will be dropped off at the Chambliss Center for Children in February.

The January guild meeting was a planning session for the new teams. Team members put their thinking caps on and made plans for this year's monthly programs.

The Choo Choo quilters were busy over the holidays as there were lots of quilts for Show and Tell. Betty showed a framed antique quilt piece. What a great way to preserve a quilter's handiwork that can no longer be used as a functional quilt.
 Several cuddle quilts were turned in.
Ginny continues to use up her stash and scraps in this charming one-patch quilt.
Pam was tasked with hand quilting a runner for a friend.
Here is a closeup.
Another hand quilted quilt by Pam.
Sissy showed a pieced and appliqué quilt. The dark background really shows off the colorful appliqué flowers.
And we had another "finish" from the 2013 Brown Bag Challenge. This is Cristy's scrappy string quilt that she made with and for her father-in-law.
Watch for Veronica's quilt, "Pi E2, Exponentially Embellished" in advertisements for AQS [American Quilters Society] shows.
