April Meeting Highlights

And it's starting too look like spring around Flin Flon .... the sun is still shining past dinner, the snow is melting, a few geese are being spotted in the parks and our Snowbirds are returning home for summer. Happy to see so many cheery people back to our guild! 

Here's a sampling of our show & tell last night.

Phyl has been busy with her embroidery machine ... off to buy a bench to show off her cool bench pillows!

Helen and her scrappy creation

Rae shows off her modern Christmas beauty

And Audrey .. never wanting to smile for me!

Donna created this sweet boys quilt for our comfort projects ... I'll get that quilted up this week!

Peg shows off her sweet quilting .... a baby and a big one!

Gladys wowed us with her masculine foxes. 

And is frugally creative with her makes

A beautiful lady is hiding behind this beautiful quilt ....

There she is .... this beauty will be raffled off at the CWL bazarre in the fall. This might be the nicest 
quilt Rae has given them. 

This is a shot of our next project. We are making log cabin blocks for the 'Quilts of Valour' program. I think they will turn out stunning. We enjoy taking part in this very special Canadian project. Stay tuned for the finished product!

We can hook you up with some reds if you are short in the stash ... contact me if you need some to make up a block or two (or twelve!)

More of Helen ... she awes us every month! Helen has 9 grandchildren that won't stay small ... she is forced to keep quilting!

Phyll busy stash busting .... she's likely out of fabric soon .... ha ha!

Another finished guild quilt.

Such lovely models .... We are going to make quilted lap covers for our community friends in long term care. Sandra is a perfect model for this piece and her 'nurse' appears to be really happy helping her out!

Audrey .... look at the camera!

And Donna again with her own stash busting

Helen hiding behind this spring beauty. This quilt is heading to the personal care home to spread some joy for a month or two.

Until next time .....
