November 16, 2017 – Mary Bauer “Dresden Neighborhood”

We were honored to have Mary Bauer teach this class on how to turn a dresden plate pattern into a whimsical “Dresden Neighborhood”.  With detailed instruction from Mary, the dresden blades were cut for the houses, arranged and sewn to the background in a visually pleasing manner, and trimmed to differing heights.  The next step was to start adding the roofs, windows, and houses.  It was quite an enjoyable class with lots of learning and laughter.  We hope to see some completed “Dresden Neighborhoods” at our next meeting.  Thank you, Mary!



Barbara finished a pillow from the Origami Dresden Plate class Susan taught last month.  Such great, vibrant colors!  Sangeeta is varying her block by adding stuffing under the dresden blades for more dimension.


Debbie shared this stunning needlework quilt she found on a recent visit to Mexico City.

The curves in Janet’s clever log cabin are a result of using strips of different widths to make the blocks.

Cindy and Susan brought their completed Rudolph tree quilts for the children at Norton’s Hospital.

For members still working on their Rudolph tree quilts, please bring your completed quilt to the Christmas Dinner on Thursday, Dec. 7.
