September 2012 Meeting Highlights

We had a very full afternoon of machine quilting and sorting comfort quilts.
24 members and one guest turned out for the meeting on a rainy fall evening.
Here is a photo of some of the old comfort blocks, the new comfort block for October and November is a paper pieced heart.

 Here are some photos  of the comfort quilts the guild gave away this month.
These three quilts went to First North Creighton

 And these three went to The Women's Resource Centre

 This lovely ABC Quilt went to the Breast feeding group for October's breast feeding week.

 The baby quilts below went to Flin Flon Families First.

 This black, white and red went to the Cranberry Craft sale for our raffle.

 These four below went to Flin Flon Child and Family Services

 The three touch quilts went to Snow lake to the Personal Care Home

 and this is Nadine with three more quilts for Rae's Challenge.

 Audrey thanked everyone for taking part in the Judy Niemeyer workshop and gave a special thank-you to Kathy S for organizing the event.
Here is a sample of some of the ladies tops.

Due to a family illness Sandra D has withdrawn as Vice President.  The guild is looking for someone to let their name stand for VP, hopefully by the October meeting.

Rae B inquired about the possibility of the guild making donations of quilts to Habitat for Humanity in Flin Flon.  The Guild pasted the motion.

The Comfort Block for September and October 2012 will be the Crazy Patch Heart.  This was demonstrated by Eileen M using some of the techniques learned at the Judy Niemeyer workshop. Evelyn B assisted.

Show and Tell

Happy Quilting!

Sandra D.
