May Meeting

41 members and one guest braved the heavy snowfall warnings for our evening meeting on May 19.

We had one new member join our group. Here is new member Nadine holding up her first quilt.

Our Bird house blocks are due for the June meeting. A vote for the favourite block will be taken at that time, so you still have time this month to complete your block.

Our demo for the evening was the double wedding ring as demonstrated by Marg F.

Blanche showed us her beautiful "Beyond Baltimore" quilt. Pieced by Blanche and quilted by Kathy S.

Our next comfort block is a paper pieced popsicle block. If you didn't pick up your background fabric last month, you still have an opportunity in June.

You can see that we have almost completed the appliqued flower quilt. However we are missing one block. If any of our members has one of the blocks completed or not completed could you please bring it to the next meeting. We don't have enought background fabric to make another block so we are desperate for a piece of the background fabric with or without a flower appliqued onto it.

This is another reminder that the July meeting will be held on the second Tuesday. July 14th.
See you in June
Happy Quilting!
