December Meeting- Party and Planning for 2018
2017 Murder a Quilt, or Quilt a Muder
Each month starting January 2017, Lauren read us a chapter of the Murder Mystery. Who murdered the quilt shop owner? Each member was assigned a character in the story.Each month the list of "suspects" grew. Also, each chapter had a hidden clue about a quilt block pattern. We then went home and made the quilt block from the clue we were given. At the end of the year we had completed 12 quilt blocks.
At our January meeting, the mystery was solved, and the true criminal was revealed and arrested. After the arrest, some members showed the quilt blocks they had created.
Thanks Lauren this was a great project.
The mystery is solved

Shiva Sticks and Stencils-lots of ways to have fun with this one.
Rubbings-can capture designs from almost anything with texture.
Markers and Alcohol Painting-Who knew. We didn't have much control over what happened, a great surprise appeared before our with this technique.

More on Loom Weaving
Martha showed us how to do a hem stitch to finish the edge of our weaving project, so we can take it off the loom without it unraveling.
Marti Z. found a rather unique, yet handy looking bag at Ketner's Mill.
