August Meeting Highlights

We had a nice crowd at our meeting this past Tuesday .... we seem to grow as the weather turns ....

Our guild has been gifted quite a bit of fabric lately from the estate of a young quilter in the community. We are thankful her family thought of us and are busy putting her goods to use. Marg F. started our giving season off with a number of comfort quilts she made this summer.

 Marg also lead a demonstration on a quilt as you go method

Our show and tell was lively per usual,

Kathy has been busy .... this hanging was a Round Robin challenge a few of us took part around 2014. Most of ours are unfinished. Lori S. quilted this piece as a 'favor' to her friend and it is quite stunning. The picture does not do it justice.

The Viking flimsy is fun, fun, fun! 

This is an original design by Kathy - Four patch Charm Quilt. She has a free pdf pattern on her site.
Pattern Here!
Donna shows off some nice quilted oven mitts
Phyl models a newly made bag

Iris has been busy - this stunner is from a pattern called 'Lap of Lux' - her second is 'Fireside Lane' (she dares to call herself a beginner!)

Joanne shows us how color can transform a quilt making the same pattern in different hues 

Marg F with an oversize ipad bag and Christmas hanging 

Cindy has another show stopper - this Canadiana themed batik quilt is a beauty. It is called 'Spring Thaw'

Until next time,
Happy quilting friends!
