Guild Night

Wednesday, March 18 was our monthly guild meeting. Our guest speakers were some of our members who presented their pieces that they have created together as a group as they have worked together through some art quilting books.


Later, a couple of the members disclosed during show and tell that sometimes they incorporate some unusual elements into their quilted pieces--in this case it was Guinness beer cans. They have discovered that after being heated with a torch a Guinness can turns into a bronze/gold coloured medallion shape. Interesting for sure!

The highlight of the evening was after show and tell when all the We Care quilts that had been handed in that night were held up for display. We had 32 quilts turned in at this meeting and once we had them all held up, they circled the hall.



You will recognize some of the quilts from the workshop we had earlier this month.

What a wonderful quilt show! Pictures like this is about the only time I miss not going to a guild.

I bet Dot was thrilled to see the committee's work come to fruition and knowing how many people will be served by your guild making these quilts.
