NeedleChasers Recent Meetings and Workshops
In the heat of July 2017, we were refreshed by Heather Kojan's presentation of more than 50 of her quilts. Heather founded the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild and her enthusiasm was contagious.

Marty Fry brought the completed top of the 2018 raffle quilt. Members  sewed the blocks, while Marty pieced the center block and pieced it all together.
   
We also enjoyed lot of creative work at Show & Tell. Click on the thumbnails below to see them all.
At our May 2017 meeting,  innovative quilter Donna Clauer Stufft shared her life-long journey in sewing. "I'm making it up as I go along," she told us.

At our March 2017 meeting, NeedleChasers was thrilled to welcome Barbara Korengold and her award-winning quilts--all hand-appliqued and hand-quilted. Would you believe she's never had a single lesson? What an inspiration to us all.
 
We also enjoyed a slew of gorgeous work at Show & Tell. Click on the thumbnails below to see them all.
Our annual Quiltathon was held in February. Such an industrious group of quilters! Finished quilts will be going go to Stepping Stones.
NeedleChasers kicked off the New Year with our annual demo day. Three guild members shared techniques that should prove useful in finishing the community service quilts we'll be making at the February 2017 meeting.
    Kim Kellman showed us a quick and easy way to join the  ends of bindings.
    Ruth Cohen demonstrated free-motion quilting on a home machine.

It's December, so NeedleChasers celebrated with our annual holiday luncheon.  Del Ray fabrics brought a tempting selection of fabrics and kits to their pop-up shop. We also got a peek at a sample of the quilts we will be making at our February Quiltathon.
   

There were fewer than usual quilts brought for show and tell, but what they lacked in number was made up for in beauty and creativity. Click on the thumbnails below to see larger images.
