The end of the year is celebrated the same way every year by our guild. We take the first part of the meeting to have our showed and tell. As is always, our members showed us their many talents.
Claire says she is a modern quilter from a traditional guild – all we know is that she made a beautiful quilt here.
Pam brought in this small quilt which is one of many where she works with one shape and repeats it.
And Lynne made this bag for her upcoming grandchild’s diaper bag:
Laura Ryle made this gorgeous modern Amish quilt as a wedding quilt. Laura did the quilting as well.
Gene made a duvet cover out of some Japanese fabrics – it’s brown because she has two new puppies and they get to sleep on the bed 🙂
Tamlin made this geometric vision of a mountain scene in this quilt which she will be gifting.
After show and tell, we had so many great treats that members brought for a bit of festivities and to enjoy each others’ company. We then had a fun gift swap and everyone was so generous and creative with their gifts.
We also brought many donations of fabric and notions for survivors of the camp fire and for members of a quilt guild there whose members lost their homes. Quilters in that area have requested fabric, needles so that they can do hand work while they start to rebuild their lives. As we all know, having a small but creative outlet is soothing and helpful.
We will see you in 2019!!
