February 2017 Meeting Highlights

We had a great response to our call for quilt blocks that will be sent to the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild for their Quilts for Quebec project. Thank you ladies, they look great!

We also finished the quilt that will be donated to the Creighton School for a Playground fundraiser.

Our next Quilt Show is now booked with the Community Hall. Mark Sept 21 and 22, 2018 on your calendars!

Our program for the evening was a Paper Piecing Workshop lead by Evelyn Black.

Now to our Show and Tell.

I also received a few pictures from our snow birds in B.C heading to a quilt retreat and also bottling wine!   If you are away for the winter and would like to share a few pictures of what you're up to please email them to me and I'll share on the blog.

Happy Stitching!

January 2017 Meeting Highlights

We had a great day sewing and worked on making the Four Patch Posy quilt in Black and White fabrics ( no pictures yet).  The center is put together and we just need to add the borders next month.
We also finished putting the borders on the Hexi Flower quilt which is looking great!

The program for the evening was the Circle of Squares block demonstrated by Audrey.  This will be our Comfort block to bring back in February and March.  If you haven't returned your Sister's Choice blocks from Dec and January you can still do that in the next few months as we know many are away for the winter.

We discussed the idea of a new Mystery project or challenge for 2017. If you have any ideas please share with the executive.  I might have a lead on a Mystery Project!

We also discussed having teachers come in to teach and Wendy from Fabriculous has agreed to come up for our Retreat on April 7 and 8th and teach the Necessary Clutch Wallet.  I'll get more details from Wendy as to what she will charge and what supplies we need for the class. I think this would just be a one day class and it could be run on Saturday so those that work during the week can attend.
Now to our favorite part Show and Tell!  Look at how happy these ladies are with their projects!!  Love it!

Happy Stitching!

December Christmas Party

This years Christmas party was another big success!  Fabric draws, Silent Auction, games and lots of laughs while enjoying cookies, cider, coffee.   This is a great way to end the year and celebrate friendships made over our shared passion for quilting!

We even managed to finish a quilts top during the day and have a finished quilt returned with quilting and binding done!

We donated placemats to Meals on Wheels as well as Norman Community Services.  Great job ladies!

And of coarse we couldn't have a get together without Show and Tell!

And it wouldn't be a party without a few games.  We tried a new one this year and tested our members skills at drawing a Christmas scene without looking!   I have to admit I really enjoyed seeing all the ladies with paper plates on their heads. You're all great sports!

But there can only be one winner when all the points were added up! Congrats Lori!

We also ended the evening with our traditional Left/Right Story game where we exchange fat quarters that we passes around the circle as we listen to the story. Sheri entertained us with her own version this year and it was wonderful!

Merry Christmas to all!
