November


We had quite a showing at our November meeting... 

Many thanks to our outgoing officers ... a new season brings new new faces to our executive chairs. 
Special thanks to Audrey who has served as president. We welcome Sandra D. and Lorna to the new shared role. 

Sandra S. has been a very good scrap picker this month. Sandra has stepped up to be our secretary this time around. Thanks Sandra!





Myrna models some sweet Christmas pillows. Myrna stays on as our membership officer. Many thanks to you Myrna!




I'm convinced Helen has insomnia .. she couldn't sleep! She has been mass producing quilts this month and has made a number of sweet stockings.







Donna will have the best dressed wine bottles at her table.


Gladys finally shows off her gorgous mini quilt which she made for our quilt challenge.


And has the most spoiled grand puppies around!


 Phyllis also models her 24# mini



Cindy has been busy ....



 Phyl shows off another beautiful Canada quilt she made ... lucky daughter gets this one!


Yvonne shows off more bags ... she has become our expert bag maker!

I've had fun this month with my mini quick curve ruler and a scrap basket (I'm on a fabric diet)



And finally got around to binding some oldies ...



 Lorna has a sweet scrappy make


 Audrey is happier than this picture shows as she models her sweet Christmas pillows.



And Peg shows off some sweet gifts to show before she wraps them up.  Peg now joins the executive as treasurer. We love to make money for our guild ... money to buy fabric to make things to make money to buy fabric and make things .... and on and on (we like to buy fabric and make things!)
Thank you Peg!



Lynne shows off this sweet broken herringbone. Thank you for tackling the secretary job for so long! It was much appreciated! 



Our next meeting will be our Christmas party ... I hope you can all come out for some fun and cheer.
Happy quilting!

October Meeting Highlights

We had quite a healthy crowd at our October guild meeting last night ... lots to discuss about upcoming events and rehashing our fall show. We are already planning and plotting how to improve things for next time around. We were all fairly happy with the fall show and will be holding it again in September of 2020. It seems alot of guilds have made a switch from the spring. 

These two beauties are bee projects that we will be raffling off this season at our local craft sales. 


Diane had some help modelling her lovely quilt. It seems comfy. 


Phyl and Myrna have been travelling to fun retreats making the most of their embroidery machines.


Everyone wants to talk while we take pictures! Lorna showing off her sweet mini.


Marg with another low volume beauty


Cynthia has been busy making baby quilts


And placemats ....


And throws ...


Vivian shows off a lovely wildlife piece


Lynn models a modern baby quilt


And another ... this particular throw is the pattern our beginners will be tackling this month


Sandra has been a good scrap picker again



Another guild project so far without a home


And another .... can you tell we really like to make quilts 'just because'!


Oh ... and here's another one .....

The next part of the gallery is a showcase of the mini quilts some of us made as part of the quilt show challenge. The rules were that your mini was to be 24 inches and pieced, quilted and constructed entirely by the maker. I love how you can get a feel for our varied tastes and skills.




Sandra S. is a rule breaker! Her min was 23.75 inches! Bad girl.















Until next month!
