April Meeting with Leslie Prokop

Leslie Prokop, of JP's Quilt Studio came in an SUV loaded with fabric.  Notice that none of those ladies are empty-handed?

Leslie also brought along her husband-assistant to "man" (ahem) the cash register.

As her trunk show, Leslie presented many (!) antique quilts that had been made by her grandmother.  Some, like this, were utilitarian.

Others, like this, demonstrate Grandmother's skill and the reason why she was a multiple-award winning quilter.

Leslie also regaled us with some stories from the journals that had been written every day from the time her grandmother was eight years old.  Wow.  If your guild would like to contact Leslie, her email address is jpquiltstudio@ (take out the space).

May 9 Meeting

At the next meeting our guest will be Susan Forbes, whose focus is on quilts with curved piecing.  You will find Susan on Instagram as susanforbesquilts .

Don't forget:

  • your Block of the Month
  • your Fat Quarters for the June draw - some lucky winner is going to go home with a LOT of fat quarters!
  • your completed UFO's for Show 'n Share, along with $5 if you want to join the draw for UFO-completers
  • your Squares if you're in the fabric swap
  • your coffee mug
