July Meeting

We had a small turn out of 20 members and one guest for our July meeting but it still was a great day to quilt!
Our Little Hex's are looking fantastic and the blue pinwheels are going to make a wonderful quilt.  You still have time to return any of your comfort blocks that might be sitting around your sewing room as Audrey pointed out we have not put together any quilts using the comfort blocks she has organized since taking on the role of Program Director ( that is a whole year!).  We plan to start working on those comfort quilts in August as well as baste a few quilts.  

Here is the link to Quiltmakers blog that Audrey was talking about

The lastest news from the business meeting is that we will be having a Retreat on Friday Sept 30 and Saturday October 1. We will also be participating in Culture Days by having an Open House on Saturday Oct 1 during our retreat. This will allow the public to view a variety of quilting projects as well see where we meet.

Now to our Show and Tell.

June Meeting

We had a very busy meeting in June with members working on our Touch Quilt projects during the day. We had ten quilts completed and about 50 kits made for members to take home to work on.
We were also busy working on our new Bargello Raffle quilt for our next quilt show. Lori was very determined to have it finished by the end of the day and it was!  The trip to the ER with a needle protruding out of her finger didn't even get in the way. ( I changed the wording on the poster above her head to apply to the situation!)

We had 34 members and one guest for our evening meeting.  Our program for the evening was Machine Applique and Audrey demonstrated a few techniques.

We had a fantastic Show and Tell so lets start with our guilds quilts!

Meeting Date Change Reminder

Just a reminder that our July meeting date has been changed to Tuesday, July 12 as the church is having their Vacation Bible School on the week of our usual guild day.
There will also be an executive meeting at 5pm, everyone is welcome so please come and share your ideas for new programs with the executive.
Looks like the forecast for Tuesday is hot and sunny so you might want to enjoy the air conditioning indoors at the meeting :)
Hope to see you all there.
