May Guild Meeting
With the new puppy in the house I haven't done much quilting the past two weeks but today did get away to my guild's May meeting.
Always lots of good show and tell...
And this month our program was a bit different. We played Quilter's Bingo! I got the idea from a Fons and Porter magazine about 5 years ago! I had clipped out the pages and put them in my guild file..not quite forgotten but not urgent. However it was "on-hand" when the group started to look for a quick program this month!
Basically each person makes their own bingo card only it used color and fabric style instead of letters and numbers.
My friend Tari and I called the cards...for the four games (each having one grand prize and at least one second prize. Our last game had two grand prizes! Anyway, lots of prizes and lots of fun! At the end of the game the players tuned in their "cards" and the cards will be sewn together to make quilts for the local Ronald McDonald House! We have enough to make at least 4 quilts!
Since I didn't get to play (I was calling numbers) one of the guild members shared this find from a yard sale with me...
my quilting rack was broken during our last move and I hadn't gotten around to replacing it! The hoop without the stand just wasn't working well for me...now I have no excuse!
