June Show and Tell, 2018

Our meeting...

Joan B conducted our last meeting of our official quilting season, and her last meeting as Coordinator. A new Executive will take their offices in September.  Reports were given by several committee heads.
Thanks were extended to the "old" executive members,  and the "new" executive members were introduced.  A few meeting details were discussed and the directions given for our AUCTION to raise money for Cottonmill Guild. Then:

April 2018 Show and Tell

 Today, our meeting was held by Jennifer S,  as our Coordinator is basking in the sunlight of the South.  Great job Jennifer.

 The workshop today was lead by Cecile G with more than 20 participants.   Cecile's Stack 'n Whack was enjoyed by all and stay tuned for the results in months to come!grouping.   There was an explanation by Margie C regarding next month's workshop.

 We had a good size Show and Tell by members with lots of enthusiasm.

 There is a Workday for members on the 7th of May, offered by our Workday Committee.

Next month's workshop

Margie C will be teaching the Bargello runner next Guild meeting which is May 14th!  All that you need for this runner is 2 strips that are 2 1/2 inches of 10 different fabrics.  Have a look at the gradation in Margie's. She used greens and blues but of course, you can use any combination of colours. A flannel backed tablecloth(e.g. a tablecloth from the Dollar Store) all be very helpful for layout planning and keeping you organized.


Today's SHOW AND TELL

Thanks again to Secretary Dianne K for recording the names of the" Show and Tellers" for me!

Here is Brenda N's beautiful pineapple quilt.

Brenda's 8 year old granddaughter made this quilt ALL BY HERSELF including the binding...maybe with some guidance from grandmother Brenda.  Congratulations!

Beautifully colourful baby quilt for Brenda's great grandchild!
