May 2011

There were 36 members present and no guests at our May meeting.

Kathy showed our members the completed comfort quilts returned to the meeting.
These two quilts were made from our  member's orphan blocks. 

 Kathy and Eileen are displaying the quilt made at the April meeting, using the twister ruler.  What a lovely quilt.
The ruler was so addictive that some of our members came to to meeting with projects they completed using the ruler.
 Eileen's lovely place matts

 And Kathy's baby quilt.
A few of our members have completed their mystery quilts from last winter

Organizing and sewing quilts for the Touch Quilt project in support of the Alzheimer’s Society will be the activity for next guild day (June 21 from 9 am to 5 pm.  Donations of 6 inch block of various textured fabrics are welcomed.).  The guild received a donation of fabric from CADAC.   Some of this fabric can be used for the Touch Quilt project.
 Sherri is holding up a sample of a touch quilt. 

Our winter wear blocks were sewn together, and once the quilt is quilted and bound, it will be donated to CADAC for their raffle.

 Some of the little hexs blocks have been turned it.  This photo should help you with ideas for your own little hex square.
 The new comfort quilt block for June and July is easy pinwheels, as demonstrated by Kathy and Robin.

We had a small turn out for the meeting, but that didn't dampen any one's enthusiasm.  We had lots of show and tell.  So sit back and enjoy.

Happy Quilting!
