August 2016 Meeting Highlights

We had a busy day working on our two Hunter Star Christmas raffle quilts.  We finished piecing the first one ( shown above) and the second one is in the block stage and should be finished next month.
We also basted four quilt top and those all left with members to quilt over the next few months!  I'm so happy to see these quilts going out to be quilted by our members, this is the best way to practice your quilting skills!

I will be offering a fall Beginner Class at our October 22 UFO day for those that could not make it to the spring class. It will still be a regular UFO day for our members as I only have 3 students in the class so far so we won't take up much room!

Our Program for the evening was Binding demonstrated by Phyl Broughton.

Now to our Show and Tell!

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!
Happy Stitching!

July 2016 Meeting Highlights

The 'Oh Canada" quilt is now done for the Syrian family and it was lovely to meet the mother of the family at our UFO day in July.   Sandra S. took the quilt after our meeting to give to the family.
We had a busy guild day working on quilt tops as well as a great afternoon workshop lead by Marg Faktor in the Reflection quilt.  Marg also demonstrated it at the evening program.

The guild had another finish,  the baby Quarter Sections quilt from our Beginner Class in June.

All our UFO and Retreats dates are booked until the end of December, the list is on the right had side of this page.
Don't forget Marg is sharpening scissors at our August Guild day but only during the day, not at the evening meeting.  Each pair sharpened only $2.

Show and Tell

Happy Stitching!
