March 13th meeting

One of the best parts of the guild meeting is always Show & Share.
A few years ago we ran a swap of half-square triangle blocks.  Charlotte brought in the quilt she made from her collection.

Extras went on the back.  Nice.

Our Program tonight was hands-on hand work.  OMG, isn't that beautiful?

English Paper Piecing of Hexagons.  I was excused because my arm is still in a cast.

Here is a panel all whip-stitched together.
Next, Madeline showed us how to make these.  After stuffing with a piece of batting they are slip stitched closed and quilted.
Then you whip-stitch them together next time you're on a road trip.

What's coming up at the guild?

MARCH 27TH - Extra UFO sewing day.  No meeting, just sewing & socializing from 9 - 5.  Bring $5 for rent, your project(s), and your lunch.

APRIL 10TH - Next regular meeting day.  Come and sew, if you like, from 9 - 6.  6pm is when dinner starts.  This is catered by the church ladies and you must register for dinner. Sewing day is $5 and dinner is $14.
The real meeting starts at 7:30.  Our program that night will be Debby Allen doing a demonstration on landscape quilts.
