ANOTHER Change of Plans For Feb. 13th...well ok - it's a cancellation

Yes, here we are, another cancellation.  NO MEETING TONIGHT.
For your entertainment, here is a shot of my back patio last night.  Since then we've had an inch or so of snow added on top of the ice.
The next chance for us to get together will be:
SCRAPPY CLUB, Feb. 25th
EXTRA UFO DAY, Feb. 27th

Next regular meeting will be March 13th for BINGO NIGHT.  We will also have the pincushion swap that night (which was supposed to be tonight).
Stay warm & dry until then...

slight change of plans for February 13th meeting

Due to an unexpected event, Bernadette is unable to attend with her trunk show.  Instead, Helen Hubert will be presenting a small trunk show and a lesson on Trapunto quilting.

January - Member Quilts

January is such an IFFY month - the Program committee cannot depend on having decent weather, so it's rare that we'd have a guest speaker.  Tonight the members were asked to bring quilts they have made using "winnings" of some sort.  Winnings from the Block of the Month, or off the Draw Table, Fabric Swaps or...?

Here's a few that were shown:



And Shirley, bless her heart, always has some interesting techniques to share with us.  Tonight she did a short demo on String Quilts that are made with foundation piecing:


NEXT MEETING FEBRUARY 13TH, 7 PM.
This will be a trunk show night so bring your camera, and a notepad to write down any great ideas.

December Craft

We filled our bellies with each other's delicious cooking at the year end Christmas Pot Luck Supper.

Then we had a short meeting and settled in to work on this year's wee project:

Charlotte came with all our supplies prepared.

This looks ridiculously simple.  But try explaining it to a room full of women.

What a studious group.

With a little bit of help I think everyone went home with a completed star ornament.  Here is a LINK to a YouTube video for the project.

NEXT MEETING:  WEDNESDAY JANUARY 9, 2019, 7 PM.
This will be an in-house trunk show by any members who can bring quilts they've made from items they have won at guild meetings - either through Block-Of-The-Month or the draw table or any other type of giveaway we've had.
