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.

Installation of officers

February's meeting included installation of officers for 2015.

More Show and Tell

Happy Quilting til we meet again.


December

December brings our Christmas party and drawing of our raffle quilt.  In the last several years we invite past, present and interested members to our party. It is a mini reunion with lots of hugs along with show and tell and FOOD.  And speaking of food--Brenda Smith has done an awesome job this last year as our hospitality chair.  She always brings items from home to set up a charming and lovely centerpiece from her collection of quilts, antiques, and decor. Thank you, Brenda.

Lots of visiting
