Our May meeting showcased the works and surface design techniques of three of our members: Linda Waddle, Ann Sanderson, and Michelle Peerson. During Show and Tell, Joan Dyer shared a piece entitled, "Layers and Textures," Linda Siska shared her Zentangle inspired quilt, "It's Not Just Black and White," and Ardy Tobin asked for advice on her two 'grand dog' quilts in progress. Our newest member, Jan Petra, shared some of the quilts she has made over the years.
