SEPTEMBER GUILD MEETING

Another great guild meeting!  We welcomed a new member to our group, Velma Tauriainen.  Welcome Velma!  We also enjoyed visiting we Dana's mother-in-law, Louis, who is visiting from New York.  She shared a couple of her beautiful quilts with us.  You can see them in the Show and Tell video, along with all the other wonder show and tell projects, compliments of Linda Pheffer.

Here's what went on:

  • Saturday's Sew-In will be 10 am at the library.  Bring a project of your choice to work on, a snack to share or just come to visit! Everyone is welcome!
  • The 5" square exchange color for October is ORANGE!
  • Next month bring copies of your favorite pattern to share with the group!  About 10 or so copies if you can.
  • Janice brought in approx. 27 totes for the Newborns in Need and other items.  Way to go Janice!!!!
  • Janice demostrated how to make a 3 dimensional folded bow tie block and showed us a quilt she made years back using the blocks.  Very adorable! 
  • Gadjets:   Janice showed us the many uses of Flexicon pens for marking our quilts.
  • Loretta passed out an instruction sheet on how to apply a quilt sleeve to the backs of quilts you want to hang on the wall.  
  • Linda reported that the Pregnancy Resource Center in Owasso would like to obtain a queen sized quilt for their December fundraiser.  Linda did not commit us to making such a quilt but if anyone would like to take on the task, they are welcome to do so.
