November 2014 Meeting Highlights

The daytime workers were very busy putting together a few quilt tops that have been sitting in our cupboard.  Do you remember making the Churn Dash blocks and the Exploding Pineapple blocks?  They are now quilt tops!

We also finished piecing the Lug Nuts quilt from the August Workshop and this will be our next Quilt Show raffle quilt.  Talk about being ahead of the game!

Here is our finished quilt for the Cranberry Portage Craft sale raffle.   Thanks to all that helped make the quilt and who sold tickets.

At our evening meeting we had 28 members present and we were able to present the Elks with 12 baby quilts for their Christmas hampers.   We also had quilts ready to be sent to Safe Haven, Flin Flon Family Services, Creigton Child and Family, Kids First North, Flin Flon Families First and Cree Nation Child and Family.

Here is this months Round Robin results, looking good ladies!
Next months instructions - 'put on point and then either applique or use a special ruler that you own."

Andy Burbidge from Flin Flon Insurance came to talk to us about insuring our quilts as well as what the guild would need to do if we wanted to insure our supplies at the church. Lots to think about and I hope everyone ran home to take pictures of all there belonging like he suggested!

Wendy from Fabriculous in Swan River is interested in coming up here next year to teach a workshop on a great tote bag.  When we have more info we will let you know!
