July 17th Meeting Highlights

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 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.

Meeting Notice for July 17th

Guild meeting at Northminster United Church on Tuesday July 17th from 9Am to 9PM. Business meeting started at 7PM.

Last month we demonstrated quilted postcards. It would be nice to see lots of cards for show and tell.

Please remember to bring your bottle caps for the evening project. This should be a more social evening, with our members making a craft for the CQA Convention in 2008.

The raffle tickets are ready to pick up so please see Evelyn for your book.

We are continuing to work on the log cabin quilts, and a "Hug me" quilt, during the day. Please feel free to come out and participate.

See you Tuesday
Happy Quilting!
