UFO Days for Ochre River

Hi Everyone.  Just to let you know that the UFO days for Ochre Hall are booked for April 26 and for May 24th.  Bad news is that the Quilt Racks are already booked for the weekend that we wanted.  They are available for the weekend before or after though so we have to make a decision and let them know ASAP.   See you on Saturday at the UFO day at the Fire Hall in Dauphin.

January Show & Tell

There was a nice amount of show and tell at the January Meeting.

Winnie did an awesome job completing her poinsettia table runner.  The beads in the center were a really nice touch.

Sherry was happy to show her final Christmas project from a year long challenge at another guild.  Very cute!

Sherry's Block of the Month from a few years back.  She made more blocks than the original to increase the size.

Reneta's Peekaboo baby quilt.

Lorraine's baby quilts.

 Karen put together and quilted up these Disappearing 4-patch guild blocks.  This quilt is ready to be donated.

Karen's cool black and white and red quilt.  One of five wedding quilts needed in her life this year!  The pattern is called "Twinkle" and is from the book Scrap Basket Sensations.

Cheri thought she could hide at the back of the room, but my telephoto lens captured her sewing machine cover!

And I had a few things to share.  My Stonehenge Starry Nights tree wall hanging, complete with LED lights.

The latest Highway 10 Designs Original - "Not Your Mother's Rail Fence".

And an old UFO with a snow dyed backing.

 There is a UFO day this Saturday January 18th in the Old Firehall.  A great time to work on those UFOs that are hanging around, or start something new.  Hope to see you there!

Meeting and Party this week!

Happy New Year!

Our next meeting day is this Thursday, January 9th, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.

We are having our late Christmas/New Year party and I wanted to remind you of what you should be bringing.

  • A fat quarter for the exchange - please wrap in brown paper.
  • A mug rug for the exchange - gift wrapped.
  • A snack to share.
  • Any show and tell you didn't give away as a gift!
Karen will also have the old firehall open at 9:00 a.m. for a sewing day.  Hope to see there.  If you need advice or inspiration this is the perfect opportunity!

See you Thursday!
