Bring and Brag - June 18

Today was the first time we have held Bring and Brag! We had 6 ladies attend and Bettepat outdid herself! We've created this event to be held each month in order to celebrate your project victories as well as develop a community of quilters and crafters who can bounce ideas off one another. Each Bring and Brag will have a small demonstration of a new pattern or tool, show and tell, door prizes (hint: the more show and tells you bring, the more door prize tickets you get!), and then BP will issue a challenge for the next month's meeting. It was a lot of fun - and we will repeat it again tomorrow (Saturday, June 19) at 1pm!

Bettepat outdid herself on the treats: homemade cookies and hand-squeezed lemonade.

She showed off the door prize: a "countdown chain" made of fabric links.

Then we had lots of show and tells!

Isn't this the cutest idea? It was a challenge quilt using "All American Girl" fabrics - the quilt had a face hole cut out of it so that everyone could be an All American Girl!

Last, Bettepat demonstrated how to make a fabric key fob.

If you can't make tomorrows B and B, the July dates are Friday, July 9 at 10:30am or Saturday, July 10 at 1pm. We'd love to see you!

I'm following you now! I just discovered your shop thanks to my MIL and my kids and I bought some pillowcase fabric and dropped off the cases a few days ago. I am glad to see you have a blog and I hope I can stop in tomorrow. Sounds so fun!
