Quilt Challenge

 This blog is indeed still alive and kicking … I haven’t been present at many meetings this past summer and there seem to be pictures on many different cameras - we’ll get it back on track again. 

We just wrapped up our 2 day fall retreat which was a blast. It was so good to get together again - in person, eating together, having a few laughs and lots of sewing. 

We showcased a quilt challenge and voted on 2 winners. This challenge has been 3 years in the making as Covid shut downs cancelled our quilt shows. We each had to use an orange fat quarter which was provided. You could use as much or little as you liked. Some of us (like me) lost the orange, scrambled to finish last minute, or say no thanks. I just love, love, love 💕 the work and creativity these ladies put into their 24” masterpiece.

Pattie - 2nd place


I can’t wait until we do this again!

April Meeting Highlights

 We had a lot going on this spring ... finally, we were able to meet together as a group and be maskless! Yay ... the spring retreat was well attended and many of us are feeling back to normal ... as normal as we can at least! Here are some pictures from the April guild meeting.

Christmas Party

Well, it wasn't the Christmas party of years past but we are thankful that we had the opportunity to get together in some fashion this year. 

Rae presented a comfort quilt to Linda on behalf of her friends in the guild. We learned that Linda didn't have a quilt for her bed and with some life changes, she hasn't been quilting very much. It was a surprise gift to her. Love you Linda. 


Please enjoy our show and tell ... Audrey seems to be having a giggle behind this lovely leaf quilt she donated to the comfort pile for 2022. 


Iris was busy ... a lovely gift for a grandson. 


A lovely large paper pieced quilt by Donna 


Some yummo's ... Covid be damned, we need our Christmas treats! 


Patti was first up to show off her Covid QAL. Great job Patti.
