Get it...IRON CHEF? Oh well, my apron was cute- made by Nan, our Fearful Leader. And my chef's hat included a really cool vintage orange button for the center of my fabric flower. Okay, maybe no costume next year.
Here is a cute pillow by Barbara.
Helen brought these adorable reversable drawstring bags. Here is the tutorial she used: http://ayumills.blogspot.com/2008/09/tutorial-reversible-patchwork-bag.html
I'd been talking to Helen about my wonky quilt with the shot cotton frames. She told me about one of hers from a while back, and I asked her to bring it.
This leaf quilt is a new one by Helen. Her husband said he just loves this one. Now we all want one- Helen's leaves are great, including polka dots and other fun surprises.
Janet's planning on adding another large border to this red/black/white stunner and wanted our advice. I voted for a skinny black and white striped border and then a red with big white polka dots, or maybe just solid black. (I know she'll figure out something!)
It includes blocks made in an exchange in another quilt group from a few years ago...
