May 2017 Meeting Highlights

The May evening meeting had 34 members present and the Orange Peel Comfort blocks are starting to come in!   During the day we basted two quilt tops and pieced two quilt tops.  The Maple Leaf quilt has been quilted by Phyl and ready to find a home.

The evening program was demonstrated by Eileen and she showed us the Bloc Loc rulers.

We also had a special event in the afternoon that day, Sheri's Baby Shower.  Darby was such a good baby during the shower and many of us were able to enjoy some baby cuddles!

 We sure did spoil Darby didn't we!  

Okay now back to quilting!

Here was our evening meetings Show and Tell!  We had a lot to share this month.

That was a very impressive Show and Tell this month.   

So by now many of you have heard that I am moving this summer and will be stepping down as President of the guild at the end of the June meeting.  Audrey will be ready to step into the role of President in July and I know our membership will help us with the change.   We will need someone to take over the blog post so if you are interested in this simple job please let me know and I can show you how it is done.

Happy Stitching

April 2017 Meeting Highlights

We had 23 members present at our evening meeting and it looks like all of our Sister Choice blocks are returned. These will make a beautiful quilt or two!

We had a few members bring their Necessary Clutch Wallets to the meeting.  Everyone was very happy with how they turned out.

A motion was made to make "Getting to Know Hue' quilt our next quilt show raffle quilt. The executive are working on getting the pattern and fabrics.
Here is a picture of the quilts pattern cover.

The next Highway 10 Designs retreat will be held on Oct 20-22, 2017.  Those that have previously attended will get first pick at a spot and then if there are any spots available after that they will be opened to the public.

*Reminder *  We will be having a baby shower for Sheri and her beautiful baby daughter Darby on May 16th at the church from 2 to 4pm.

The program for the evening was Machine Applique and the new Comfort Block is the Orange Peel block. The guild gave out the fusible web and background fabrics, you just supply the bright fabric for the orange peel design.

Rae shared her progress on the Canada 150th quilt project that is all fusible applique.
