Wednesday evening was our regular Quilt Guild meeting. The Workshop Committee encouraged members to bring along their hand work to this meeting so that we could stitch and visit the evening away. As you can see, these ladies are very busy stitching.
Wonderful handwork on these crazy quilt blocks.
We also had a short presentation from Grace. Grace talked about her years of quilting–she has been quilting since 1976–33 years!
Other members are being encouraged to share their “quilting journey” in the coming months. What a great way to get to know one another a little more.
Grace led us through how she started quilting through to the present time with wonderful humour and some great samples of her work.
Show and share is always a popular part of the evening.
These blocks were won by one of our members in a monthly block draw last year. The blocks made up into two wonderful lap sized quilts.
Dorothy has been chosen by our quilt committee to be our featured quilter at our upcoming quilt show in October 2010. Dorothy has been quilting since she was 5 years old. Many of Dorothy’s family members have benefited by her wonderful talent and generosity as she shares her finished projects with many of them.
