April Meeting

Well another successful Quilt Show has come and gone.  I think we can all give ourselves a well desired pat on the back for such a wonderful event.  If you are interested in purchasing a DVD of the show we are selling them for $5, please see Barb Harrower at the next meeting to order yours.
Big THANKS to Prairie Chicks for coming to the show to be our Merchant Mall.  What a beautiful display they set up and great fabric kits and bundles!

Here is a picture of our 20 Winterwear blocks.

The last month of the Mystery Project was revealed so here are Rae, Sandra and Lorna's Mystery quilts.

The program for the April meeting was the Quilt Show demonstrations by Lori, Audrey and Kathy.

During the afternoon workshop we completed a few quilt tops.
We had enough Sailboat comfort blocks turned in to make three quilt tops.  Here is one of the finished tops.

The last Magic Tile quilt top in our cupboard was completed.

Our new executive will be starting in May and I (Kathy) would like to personally thank all the member who have joined the executive and guild commitees. It is nice to see a mix of new and experienced volunteers working together to keep our guild the wonderful group that it is.  It is a place to share our passion for quilting and to develop great friendships. 

April's Show and Tell

We had a great Show and Tell especially considering we just had a Quilt Show.
Here is Rae with her beautiful appliqued sampler, or as her sister calls it the "Bunny" quilt. ( Thanks for sharing that great story Rae).  She is still working on the buttonhole hand stitching but once she is done I will really enjoy quilting this one. You know it will end up with a bunny on it somewhere!

Yvonne with her Bunny quilt and she did a great job free motion quilting leaves and flowers.

Maxine displaying her quilt top which was made with the woven rail fence pattern and direction jungle print fabric.  ( bunnies but lots of cute jungle animals!)

Helen with her adorable Zoo Animal quilt...bunnies are in the second row from the botton on the right hand side.

Lorna with her cheerful baby even has frogs and fish so we had an animal themed Show and Tell!
