Members of the Lakeside Quilting Guild gathered together to learn fabric origami and share some of their recent projects with one another. Evelyn provided a wonderful demo of an origami fabric flower quilt technique. Andrea then instructed the group in creating a cute dress made out of a vintage hankie. There was plenty of hands on learning, and helpful camaraderie. The program was followed by our usual drawing for door prizes and by a terrific show and tell session. Thanks to Lei who provided photos.
