Meeting Highlights for May 27th

Tuesday was a beautiful sunny day, and we were inside working on sunny fabric. These are the quilt tops we worked on during the day. That uses up all the sixteen patch blocks our members sewed and donated to the guild. The evening business portion of the meeting was spent reviewing our April quilt show and receiving reports from the various committees. We felt our show was an overall success. A big hand of applause to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make it a success.

In the photo below you will see our happy CQA Rosette Winners for Best Of Show. Alene with her hand quilted log cabin, and Adele with her lovely snowman quilt. Alene also won our Viewers Choice Award with her log cabin quilt.

The Round Robin showing is always very exciting. Our challenge was to either make the item a square or a rectangle. How do you think we did?

We have a new comfort square for the next two months. The pattern is available at Faktor's. We are making 6 1/2 inch friendship stars. Bright coloured stars with white and black or black and white background.

We are going to sell raffle tickets on our Canadianna Quilt for a couple of weeks during homecoming this June and July. We are not asking our members to take a book of tickets home, but if Marg phones you to come out and sell tickets on Main Street or at Extra Foods, please consider volunteering a couple hours of your time. We think the extra funds would be very nice to purchase fabric for our comfort quilts.

Happy Quilting!
