Guild Meeting

                                                        Show and Tell...blocks from the Carolina Shop Hop...
Twice year the local guild I belong to has Saturday meetings so the day group and the night group can mingle.

It has been a quiet summer so there was lots of business to handle.  I was giving the program that originally was going to be 30 minutes...then 15...then a glance a the clock told me that business had taken over two hours and I stood between the mob...I mean quilters...and lunch so the program was 10 minutes!  Oh well...I had fun making and researching the blocks...
                                                Our most recent donation quilt goes home with it's winner!
We also did an activity for Quilts of Valor.  If a member brought a block then their name went into the hat for a drawing for a "fabulous prize."  (Actually it was a signed copy of Bonnie's latest book and the great news is it went to a quilter, Angie,  who loves Bonnie's work...love it when it works out like that!)

I laid out some of the blocks when I got home...hope to have at least one of the tops together by our November meetings.  I think with some sashing and borders we will have enough to make three!

What a fun idea to meet now and then so that the two groups can be together.
What was your presentation about?

Looks like you're keeping busy as usual. Hope that means hubs is doing better.

Wow... condensing a 30-min program down to 10? Amazing...

lunch? uh, no program. hee hee hee. at least you enjoyed the researching part of it and who knows, you could expand it into a longer program - longer than half an hour, not 10 mins.
