November Update

November’s business meeting was short and sweet!  Not too much to discuss, so we were done quickly.  On to Show and Share, and the Program. 

Here’s a few photos of our members’ work:

The program for November was Improv Birds and Trees.  Everyone finished their birds, and most everyone got a good start on their trees.  Here are a couple of photos of the finished products.  Check on the Program page for links to the designers who inspired us.

October Meeting

We have a bit of a new look for the website.  Feedback always appreciated!

Hope everyone enjoyed the October meeting.  We had a vote on expenditures for the upcoming months and years, and some great show & share.    Rebecca volunteered to chair Hands Across the Water next June.   Lots of others have offered to assist, thank goodness – but there’s always room for more!

Here’s a few pictures of our members’ work this month:

Sandy presented the first set of instructions for the “Do it Yourself” round robin, which will continue through next year.  There’s still time to get your centre block and first round started. The next round of instructions will be available in January.

We’ll be doing improv birds and trees at the November meeting – stay tuned for the supply list.   The blocks are inspired by a quilt we saw at the HAW meeting in Duncan this year, which was inspired by this quilt by Pie Lady Quilts.  She does great work!

December’s meeting will be full of fun – it’s auction time!  Get searching for items that everyone will want to bid on.  Karen and Daryl are accepting the donations.

Next meeting – November 8.  See you then.
