Although I missed seeing some of the Saturday people (namely Karin, my-partner-in-crime for lots of quilty fun), I did get to see Karmen and Brenda and also Saturday regulars Kristie and Becky.
I did buy the kit for this month's project (although I didn't start it). This great quilt is from the fabulous book Scrap Basket Surprises and the fabric line is by Little Quilts called "Whittier Hill"
We could choose different border fabric so I chose the darker purplish-brown paisley. Here's my fabrics.
Just to show you that it's nearly impossible to take photos around here without a cat or two wanting in on the action.... Here's Stella with Whittier Hill fabric.

Although it was a small group, we had lots of show n' tell from Sarah (no blog). Sarah is very productive and a fabulous quilter. Here are four of her quilts (four!)
For the December meeting, we are to bring a "thing in a dish but don't stress yourself out" which roughly translates to: a potluck dish. [Our fearless leader Pat just finished writing her quilt book and mailing it out and then realizing the holidays are hererightnow. Go visit her blog and give her a little hello, happy to see you back from book-writing-craziness].
For January, we have the choice to do this quilt (or as always work on our own projects). Although it is a very striking quilt, I think I'll pass and just enjoy the photo. It's not like a have 900 gazillion projects to work on...
