October 2014 Meeting Highlights

We had a small group working on guild projects during the day and 32 members and 2 guests for our evening meeting.

During the day we were busy finishing the binding on the Elk's baby quilts and they will be picked up by the Elks at our November meeting.

We also finished piecing our second Christmas raffle quilt that will be drawn for at the Cranberry Portage craft sale.   It is now quilted and just needs the binding.

We had a great display of the button hole circle and cat applique blocks made by members.

The first round of the guilds Round Robin was completed and the next months instruction is to add a border.

Our Program for the evening was making Strip blocks using Bounce Dryer Sheets, demonstrated by Marg Faktor.

The guild is going to make a quilt using this technique and asking member to make a block in shades of  BLUE to bring back to the November or December meeting.  The blocks should be trimmed to 6 1/2" x 9".

We had a nice turnout for our October Fall retreat at the church.  The Pot Luck supper was delicious and members were busy working on a lot of wonderful quilting projects!

The Swan River retreat as also a success and plans for another on in April 2015 is in the works!

Now to Show and Tell 

Our Christmas Raffle quilt is very well at the Creighton Craft Sale, thank you to everyone involved in its making and that sold tickets!

Happy quilting!
