The guild I belong to has two groups: one meets in the evenings and the other in the mornings. Twice a year we all meet on a Saturday. Today was one of those Saturday meetings.We had several activities to get folks walking around and talking. These included a match the guild member's name to their childhood photo. Loved how the member coordinating this framed them with fabric!A "Who am I" Portrait Challenge that included wall-hangings and dolls!
A green "bring your own place-setting" (then we voted on a winner...) this was so much nicer than eating off paper plates!
And a place for folks to give input into the name/them of our next quiltshow.
Our program was on how a quilt judge works. Here is our member who studied to be a judge talking about the uhm...not so perfect y-seams on my quilt. (I was a willing victim!)
The winner of this year's Ugly fabric challenge was announced and new ugly fabric diva crowned. (she gets to go first in line at all the of covered dish events and for all show and tells plus she gets to wear a very fun crown but then she also has to make something using fabric from the traveling fabric bag which has many pieces of well...darn ugly fabric!) The quilt in the photo above was the creation of the outgoing queen...she says her dog loves it!
After show and tell we had lunch....isn't the vintage fabric used in the center of the quilt in the photo below wonderful. She did a great job of framing it with the braided border...
It was fun to have all the quilters in one place and for the newer members to meet.
