Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild Christmas Party

 Yesterday we met together as the
Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild
for our Christmas Party.
Everyone brought yummy food
we visited
did a fabric exchange
and even saved a little time for
(my favorite)
Show and Tell 
Alissa just finished her
Ron Swanson
from the Quilt Along hosted 
by Monica of Happy Zombie.
Monica tells a great story
 of  how she met actor
Nick Offerman of Parks and Recreation
and had him sign her Ron Swanson quilt.
 And isn't this moustache fabric
 just perfect for the backing?
 A Lasagna Quilt
 Living in Arizona we see a lot of
cultural expressions  
of Mexican Madonna's 
and Catholic Church art
in our communities.
 I loved this quilt
represented with images of religious Folk Art paintings
through out.
 Even though it's not quite Christmas
is already thinking Valentines Day :)
 A  nice setting to showcase a favorite fabric.
Have you ever noticed during Show and Tell
that people often wear the same colors as the project they are sharing?
Matchy Matchy!
Check the pictures in this post and tell me if you see what I see.
 Danny hosts 
a wonderful on line Bee
which is up to 12 Hives now! wow!
She brought an example of  a project
she will be teaching this next year.
and yes she had on a navy blue sweatshirt to match
her navy blue fabric.
Alyssa (Pile O'Fabric)
wearing red to match 
made a total of 17 Christmas stockings
 for her family.  
More pictures from our Show and Tell will be coming soon.
