January 2009 Meeting

The break in the cold weather saw a small group of quilters turn out to work on our comfort quilts. We had a very productive day. We tied and completed the flannel quilt from January 6th comfort day, and spent time working on the paper pieced tree blocks. These are the last of our comfort squares. But as you can see in the photo below the new squares are almost all in. I think there are a few squares still out, so if any of you have got your square, please either bring it to the meeting or send it with another quilter.

Our next square for February and March is the Bargello, demonstrated by Marg. If you missed the meeting and want a kit, they will be available at the next meeting. Don't they look like fun?
We had some show and tell, her is Alta with a baby quilt.

And Yvonne with her show and tell.

Lori and Kathy demonstrated the next phase of the Mystery quilt. It is starting to get interesting.

Yellow fabric that is to be included in the Bird House blocks is available at the meetings. A reminder that the blocks should not have fusible web applique. We are finding that they become too thick to quilt, when there are several layers of fabric.
The winter issue of the Canadian Quilters in now in the library and contains the photos of Adele and Alene with their CQA Rosette winning quilts from our 2008 Quilt show.
Happy Quilting!

Looks like I missed a good meeting! Am enjoying visiting quilt shops ( beautiful material but for some reason I am just looking and not buying???). Have gotten all caught up on the mystery quilt and await February instructions!
