North Star Meeting for July

22 Members and one guest were at the evening meeting on July 13th

Seventeen ragtime quilts and kits were put together during the afternoon. Several kits are being taken home by members. Here are a couple of the completed quilts.

Making your own quilt bag will be the activity for the August afternoon. Complete information will follow along with the meeting reminder.

The raffle qult for the SPCA will be a Pet theme and blocks can be any size. A volunteer is needed to head this project.

Information was given out concerning the Quilt Manitoba website. This website has a lot of information about quilting all across Manitoba.

Here are a couple more of the Guild's completed quilts.

A quilting retreat is planned of Nov 12/13 in the United Church Hall.

Robin presented a Scrap Challenge in which members are being asked to make any item that they wish out of scraps and show it at the Christmas party.

Here are some of the scrappy stars that have been turned in this month for our comfort quilts. We still have another month to complete and turn in these blocks.

See you in August, until then,
