June 2016 Meeting Highlights

We had another busy guild day with lots of sewing machine humming away!   We finished piecing a Yellow Brick Road quilt, the Big and Tall plaid quilt and got the borders on the quilt we will be donation to the new Syrian family arriving to town this week.  We also started a City Slicker quilt and are at the stage of making the blocks.  So a very productive day.

We have our programs planned until the end of the year and I'll share that schedule with everyone when I email the minutes.

Our Program for the evening was all the different method you can use to make a HST ( Half Square Triangle) block.
Here are some links to the methods:
The Versatile Half Square Triangle
Magic 8 Method

At our July Meeting Marg Faktor will be running an afternoon workshop on how to make this style of Reflections quilt.  I will be email the information for this class in a week or two so everyone has all the details.

Then at the August Meeting Marg will be offering her Scissor Sharpening services and it is $2 a pair.

Our Friendship Star Comfort Blocks are looking great and this will be our comfort block for over the summer as well.  So if you want to make more please do as they are so quick and easy!

Next UFO Day is Saturday, July 9th!

Our Beginner Quilting Class went very well. We had 14 students and all got to the quilting stage and some even started cutting out a second quilt by the end of the second class. Great job ladies!

Now to our Show and Tell.

Happy Sewing Everyone!
Oh I added a list of the Ruler that are available in the Guild Library to the sidebar of the blog.
