Cyberbee Show-and-Tell

I just realized that I never posted any pics from the Cyberbee meeting last Thursday evening.  Cyberbee is a sub-group of Capital Quilters Guild in Raleigh.  We formed back in the mid-nineties when we were the only ones in the guild actively using e-mail...can you remember how different things were technology-wise just a short time ago?  We meet occasionally during the year, and always have an interesting show-and-tell.This time we met at the Cameron Village Library.  Several of us met for dinner ahead of time at Moe's Southwest Grill. 

Here are a few of our Show-and-Tell photos.

We all wanted to grab Margaret's Bali Basket and go!  She made it using directions from the book Bali Bowls.  I absolutely love her color scheme.

Here is a purse made by Jean from the Two-Hour Tulip Purse pattern by our own Janice Pope of the Capital Quilters Guild. 

Carolyn made a very cute Flip-Flop quilt, using silk flowers to embellish the sandals.

She also made a cute child's quilt with lavender log cabin heats.

Joyce is working on an applique quilt featuring squirrels from the Bunny Hill pattern Pumpkin Hill. Only one block to go!

Joyce also showed us her Crayon Farm quilt.  She used regular crayons to make these adorable farm scenes.

Here is a closer look at some of the blocks.  She did a big-stitch stipple by hand for the quilting.

I was particularly fond of the the turkey!

Joyce also is one of the guild leaders for our Heritage Day Quilt Auction on October 1.  She has been working hard to make American Girl doll clothes for the guild's boutique sale of hand-made items.  She had three bridal gowns complete with veils and bouquets.

Susan shared a bright and cheerful baby quilt.

June showed two very large pieced blocks from the Cabin on the Shore pattern by Minick and Simpson.

We are heading to our mountain cabin for the long holiday weekend tonight.  We will be taking both our dog, Kasey, and our son's dog, Roo. 

Dave and Emily are off on a dream vacation to Spain and France.  Bon Voyage, kids, and have a safe, memorable trip!
