August

We had a spirited group out to guild this week with plenty of show and tell for August.

Yvonne continues to be our bag lady in residence. She is making some dynamite pieces!



She led us in a demonstration on how to sew biased binding


Raye made a stunning hand embroidered quilt



Rae shows off this sweet throw she made for a sweet friend


Marg made some magic out of our guild stash. The cupboard is still overflowing!



Sandra and Sandra are a good tag team to model three cosy throws the guild girls whipped up Tuesday. These throws will be donated to the local handi-van to keep riders warm


Phyl has been busy making some sweet things 




And the sweetest Halloween quilt you will ever see!


I'm proud to show off my summer stash busting quilts



And a quilted advent calendar for Christmas


Myrna is standing in for her sister who made this comfort quilt for our cupboard


Sandra was good enough to demo the pineapple block ruler last month and made good use of it here. Sorry about the blurry picture. Sandra doesn't like to stand still to smile when she's at the front!


June made this sweet fresh throw


Our Madam presidents show off one of our Christmas raffle prizes. We have had a busy summer and seem to have our winter fundraisers nearly finished.

No scrap left behind!




And one last sweet treat. Myrna made this lovely Canada themed bag.


Happy quilting!

July

Our July meeting had quite a few members and a few guests out. We are never sure how many chairs to put out in the summer but as you can see by this show and tell, the room was fairly full. 

We had some discussion about our fall retreat (sorry, fall is around the corner!) and decided on a catered affair again. It is so nice to just sit and sew and have wonderful people come in and feed you! We love a potluck but honestly, not having to wash dishes has wonderful benefits. We did decide to cancel the UFO for August as it runs along the long weekend. There are lots of community events in Flin Flon during August and we didn't want to miss anything!

On to show and tell .....  

Helen had some sweet help showing off her grand kids quilts. 




Evelyn has been busy sewing for a new great grandchild about to make his or her entrance


Rae showing off her two beauties.


Audrey has been busy this summer .... look at that beautiful smile !!







Yvonne has been busy making bags again


Here is a shot of my scrappy summer table runner



Lorna is demonstrating some of our guild makes. 


I'm modelling my scrappy log cabin.

These three log cabin variations are the Quilts of Valour quilts we will be donating to the organisation. We will send a total of five.




Sandra gave us a spirited demonstration of the pineapple block and ruler.

Lynne models some quilt made by the guild. This white and blue beauty will be raffled off at one of our Christmas sales. The others are yet to be determined.




More from Evelyn for that new baby on its way 



Not sure if I'm a season ahead or two behind


Gladys uses every last piece!



June models some sweet kids quilts



Me again ....


Sandra got a head start on her one foot art challenge


June again ....


Evelyn with some sweet mug rugs


Until next month ....
