September 2012 meeting highlights
We had a wonderful turn out of 26 ladies for our first meeting of the fall. It was great to see some new faces and some returning faces.
We are going to be trying something new for our next meeting on October 4th. For a very small additional fee we can rent the Old Firehall for the entire day rather than just the evening. We know not everyone is free during the day, but for those who are available it can be a time to work on your own project, solicit help or opinions from other quilter or work on one of our group charity projects. Karen P. will be there is the morning. She would love to know if you plan to join her. I will be joining her in the afternoon.
The Crocus Quilt Guild will once again be hanging quilts in the Watson Arts Centre gallery in October-mid November. Members are asked to bring items to the October 4th meeting. No specific theme this year, please bring something that hasn't been hung there before.
If you are interested in participating in a challenge outside of our guild one check out the Trend Tex challenge. More info here and here. Some us have participated in the past, why not give it a try?
Here is the show and tell for the evening.
I had fun playing with my longarm over the summer and here are some of the results.
Sandra used here mebroidery and quilting skills to complete this adorable wall hanging way ahead of schedule!
Brenda made her 4th "baseball bears" quilt. So cheerful!
Karen did some extraordinary quilting on this UFO. This picture does not do it justice at all!
Gloria finished her "Rowdy Bunch" quilt. Again sorry for the picture quality. Thread work and quilting is stunning.
That's all for now. Please let Dawn know if you have an idea for a program this year. If anyone loves taking pictures and wants to help out at the meetings please let me know.
