November Meeting Highlights

It was a snowy November day but that didn`t prevent the 26 members and 2 guests from attended the meeting.
We had a great day on November 5 at both craft sales. The winner of our Snowman Quilt was guild member Wanda Sproxton.
We held a Quilt Show Meeting and most of the jobs have been filled.  It was decided that the next theme for our 12 1/2" block contest for the show is going to be Insects. The Twoonie Parade is going to be organized a bit differently this time. We will have 10 baskets with different themes and Marg Lyle and Cathy Dyck will be coordinating this part of the show. Members can get together in groups and pick a theme to donate items to create a basket and let Marg know what theme you have picked and who has donated to the basket.
Plans for our Recipe book are going well and Maxine would like all the recipes sent to her by January 31, 2012.
We will be participating in the Cranberry Portage Craft Show on Dec 3 and selling quilted items and tickets on our Bargello quilt.

Here are the 14 quilts we are donating to the Elk's Christmas Hampers.

Guild's Show and Tell.

The President`s Block for Kathy was demonstrated by Audrey.  The guild provides the batik background fabric and members are asked to provide the 6 different batik scraps for the rest of the block. When four of these blocks are put together they make a Scrappy Jewel Box block.

Now for an excellent Member`s Show and Tell.   From big projects to small, we love them all.
