We had a few ladies show their quilted postcards at the meeting. One of our guild members suggested you use a plate holder or small easel to display your cards, or perhaps send a display easel and a card to a senior or another shut in. Then every month or every season change you could make an appropriate card, write a nice note, and send it off, that way they would have a little seasonal display as well as a bit of correspondence from family and friends. Great idea!
We are still receiving the paper pieced star blocks and well as the Maple leaf blocks for the month of August. On a rainy day this summer make up a block and if you don't want to come to the August meeting drop it off with a friend or at Faktor's. We would appreciate a few more blocks. We will be making up our quilt of Comfort and Remembrance as a day project in August.
Here is one of our members showing a finished quilt that she started over ten years ago. It is never too late to finish those UFO's
The Square in square blocks the members all donated have been put together as a quilt top. Now all we have to do is baste it together and get a volunteer to quilt it. We are always looking for volunteers to take our comfort quilts home and quilt them. It is a good way to practice your quilting skills.
Here is a small version of the jar quilt. We have a much larger version all ready to put together.
We are going to be making Lorie's bag at our August meeting. Here is the link to the pattern once again http://www.quiltmag.com/pdf/quilt73BaliBag.pdf If you are interesting in making this bag please be sure to come to the August meeting. Any ladies who have already made "The Bag" bring it to show and tell that evening.
