Twice a year the guild I belong to has a meeting on Saturday so the evening group and the morning group participate in the elections, putting in new officers, and a good program. (and since we are in the South good food goes without saying...)
Today we had a lot going on. A nearby guild came by and sold some very fun T-shirts. They are doing it as part of a guild fundraiser.We also had our donation quilt on hand in case members wanted to sign out more tickets. We draw on this one in September at Arts in the Heart. The Quilt show challenge fabric was distributed...(I can honestly say this one has be stumped. How am going to incorporate a monkey in boxer shorts with the show theme of "quilting on the river?" Oh ya, and there has to be a tree, water, and a stone in the quilt design! Say what?) We had our Christmas challenge fabric packets...the block needs to represent a Holiday song. (They are killing me!)
My friend Paula did the program on using silks, woolens and cottons together in projects. It was very good. She brought lots of quilts and quilt-y stuff for her trunk show and gave us lots of tips on prepping fabrics and selecting threads.This a photo of a block of the week she did with Primitive Gatherings. It is really stunning.As usual Rachel, a very talented member of our guild who does not blog brought a pillow she designed and made using recycled linen and woolens. We are in the middle of "face-jug" country so it is very appropriate!
Show and tell was fun but I have to find out who made the blueberry pecan dessert...it was awesome!
