November 2016 Meeting Highlights

Our November guild day was full of activity.  Bags of fabric were donated and sorted to be shared with other groups in town.   We had a members quilt on the frame being basted as many hands make light work!  There were a few more baby quilts to finish up so we could donate them all to the local Christmas hampers.   We also had to make sure all 34 comfort quilts were labeled and ready to be donated at the evening meeting.  It was a busy day!  Two quilts came back that had been quilted and bound by members.  They were included in the 34 quilts that were donated.

For the evening meeting we had 35 members present.   We also had 35 members participate in our guild fall retreat, which is the largest retreat attendance we have had to date!   It was great having Shari and Marge from Road 17 N join us and set up a small shop. 

A new comfort block was demonstrated by Rae and it is the Sister Choice block. The guild donated the back ground fabric and members are asked to use red in the star points and any two fabrics for the Nine Patch.

The program for the evening was demonstrated by Eileen and it was the Quilted Hexagon Potholder/Hotmat Pattern.  Click HERE to view the pattern online.

Happy Quilting!
