August 2011 Meeting

We had a fun filled time Aug. 20 with a wonderful program. A short business meeting was followed by show and tell.
Mary with a baby quilt  for Wise Choices.
Mary's daughter, Jan, was a guest. See that cute dragon applique?
Another of Mary's baby quilts. This one goes to the auction at her family reunion.
 Debbie modeling the hat she made. Cute.

There's Sam Winover in the background.

Debbie's son had these made for her from his military uniform he wore in Iraq.          

Jo Ellen and a group of quilters exchanged sixteen patches. Beautiful scrappy quilt.
Marilynn made this beautiful buttefly quilt.
She also made an adorable set of bib and burp cloth for a baby in their church.

 Carolyn K made this striking quilt in wildflower prints. Initially it was for her bed but then she learned of a special friend at church who is moving out of state and is giving it to her. A special quilt for a special friend.

Diane told us about submitting a certificate to Moda found in her purchase of precuts and the outstanding fabrics Moda sent her. 

Mary has been busy again. She has put together some quilts for the guild to donate or whatever they decide. Next meeting we will bring our ideas and present them.
Donna put this together as per Mary's STRONG encouragement from blocks made by members. Another quilt for the guild to decide it destination.

And then Sam Winover of Two Sisters Quilting brought us a program on Templates are Quilters Best Friend. .  And I totally forgot to take pictures. Sorry. Good program, Sam. We all enjoyed your presentation. And of course the shopping afterwards!
