October 16th Meeting

The guild members basted the baskets and worked on the Canada quilt during the day. We didn't work as hard as there were fewer members out for the day.

We are looking for workers to sell tickets on our Christmas Raffle quilt at the Nov 3rd Craft show. We are also looking for someone to handle publicity for the Quilt show in April. Please contact one of the executive if you are interested.

Our unfinished block for the quilt show will be "Stars". So get your thinking caps on, the April show will be here before you know it.

The white fabric for the Presidents nine patch square is available for pickup at the meetings.
Evelyn would like a nine patch with four white squares and five red squares (no Christmas fabric please).

We had a fun time with "First and Worst Quilts". Below are some of our members showing their quilts accompanied with a good story.

We had two draws for our Flower squares with the winners being Marg H and Val D. Looking forward to seeing those completed quilts ladies.

Our new block for the comfort quilts will be a 16 patch block. Instructions are available for pickup at Faktors. Or you can complete the blocks as follows.

Cut 2 inch strips of two different bright colours. No kiddy prints please. Must be suitable fabric for teenagers. A lighter and darker bright colour should work nicely. The finished quilt blocks will be 6 1/2 inches. Also accompany the finished block with a strip 2 inches by 6 1/2 inches of both colours. These will be sewn into a multicoloured border.

See you in November. Happy Quilting!
