April



After the March meeting members started cutting out the raffle quilt.  Then before the April meeting the blocks were assembled by some members.

After the April business meeting  members who stayed sewed the blocks together into rows.  And then the rows together. The border was sewn together and then sewn to the quilt later.  Now for the quilting!

Many thanks to the members who worked on our raffle quilt.   Tickets will be available soon.  Send us an email if you would like to purchase one.


March

Carolyn Watkins brought the quilt that Barbara Peel made.  We have decided to make a queen size version for our 2015 raffle quilt.



Lots of show and tell of member's talent.
















After our business meeting a program followed given by Priscilla Moreland.  She showed us how she paints on fabric. Members were able to try their hand at it and see items Priscilla had made using this technique.
