April 2009 Meeting

We had quit a few enthusiastic members show up on Tuesday morning. Some of our snow birds returned home, myself included. There was a lot of show and tell that morning.
Some of us had our mystery blocks all completed, so we layed them out in various ways, to decide which combination worked with the different colours.
Then we got to work. We pieced together a country style quilt with the paper pieced tree blocks our members made a while ago.

39 members and 3 quests turned out for the evening meeting.
We have a new book in the library called Stack'n Whack Ipedia.

Our program for the evening was piecing the Tumbling block. Demonstrations were done by Marg F
Members are asked to return Comfort and Remberance blocks. A quilt will be started once enough blocks are back. As you can see we have been receiving some, but we need 18 to make a quilt.
The turtle blocks are also turning out very nicely. Please remember to bring yours to the next meeting.

The bird house blocks are due in June. A reminder not to use fusing on these blocks. Here are some of the blocks that have already been turned into the Guild. There should be some ideas there to get you started.
The 15 kid's travel bags that were received in March have been passed onto Family Services. More bags are welcome, with the pattern available from the Guild.

Here is Marg F with her completed Northwoods quilt.

Thank-you to my quilting friends! Eileen brought the card over today to make me cry. All happy tears knowing i am surrounded by such wonderful people in my life. I"m not sure what i want yet for a memorial for my Dad but he loved his garden in Wpg and cottage in the Whiteshell, so something for the garden is very fitting.
