I used the center of the panel to make a wall hanging for our back entrance.
I put patchwork hearts on the corners using some of the bright colors in the panel.
I used invisible thread in the quilting. I haven't gotten the knack of free motion quilting so I drew my pattern on paper and sewed over the design. Not a great method, but it worked.
I used purple, red and blue Swarovski crystals to embellish some of the berries.

This is Elaine's first quilt. She did a beautiful job. Connie, the owner of My Lil Quilt Shop, helped Elaine with the quilt. They designed it together as they went.
Sydney made this purse and trimmed it with some beads from her stash.
Amy made these three baby quilt tops, which she donated to the club.
This is my best friend, Linda with a ladybug purse she made.

The following 2 pictures are of West Grand Traverse Bay.
The water is soooooooo clear and clean and the sky was almost cloudless. I think all the shades of blue could be a great inspiration for a quilt.
The Leelanau is known for its vineyards and wineries. I thought the weather vane on top of one of the wineries was very artsy.
This vineyard is located exactly on the 45th parallel. The hills covered with grapevines were gorgeous.
Northern Michigan is very populated with deer, however we didn't see any deer until we turned onto our road on the way home. There are trees lining the road and a small woods in the photo but most of the land in our neighborhood is farmland. We are more used to seeing cows on our road.
