Guild Day, January 17, 2023

 Our first Guild Day of 2023 was a busy one. We worked on comfort quilts during the day, trimming blocks, constructing a few more, putting tops together and making up kits for members to take home and make up. A number of completed quilts were turned in.

This four patch quilt was pieced by Audrey and quilted by Lorna. Someone will be very happy to receive this one.

                            This lovely three- yard quilt was stitched start to finish by Sandra D. 

A number of years ago the members made up squares depicting various bugs. There were unused blocks in existence so this creation was put together by Evelyn and quilted and completed by Glenna. If you look closely at the second from bottom row you’ll see the name of the quilt, quite appropriately “Cuddle Bug”!

The comfort block for this quilt was demonstrated by Lynn. We all loved the way it worked up in shades of teal with black and white. This will be used for our spring quilt raffle. Tickets will be available soon and can be purchased from any of our members for $5:00 each. The draw will take place on May 16.

We had a good turn out for our meeting. There were fewer Show and Tell items but since we’ve just come off the holiday season that can be expected. 

Judy used a book with patterns and templates from our Guild library to stitch this wall hanging for her camper. The mirror is quite high on the wall and not very functional so rather than removing the mirror she will cover it up. What a great idea!

Sheri treated herself to a half yard bundle so used some of it to make these simple but attractive placemats.

Sheri shared her tangerine challenge with us before turning it in to be taken to NORVA where it and all the other members’ challenges will be displayed during the month of February. She titled this “Every Child Matters”.

Lynn stitched this stunning Hyalite Star quilt for her friend. It was quilted by Nadine in a feather pantograph. 

Our comfort block this month is called “It Takes a Village”. With little houses and trees, it should make an interesting quilt.

The weather is getting colder so it’s perfect for stitching! See you on UFO day!
