May Meeting!

Our May meeting was lots of fun with one of the members demonstrating a technique, new to me, called Back Tacking Applique. She brought kits for each member and showed us how to applique in this manner. She has said that if we bring back the finished square that she will take them and make a charity quilt with them. However, if you want to keep yours, you are more than welcome to.

Our Christmas committee has asked us to purchase a gift bag and fill it with approximately $10 worth of gifts. These will be brought to the Christmas meeting and exchanged.

Our June Meeting will be back at the Senior Citizen's Center as will the June 12th workshop.

Show and Tell for the evening!

Thearica Burroughs also showed quilts that have been made for a current Quilt Raffle that she is hosting. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities! This is the 3rd year she has hosted a raffle to benefit this worthy charity! Please see her for tickets if you are interested! There are 36 quilts being given away this year! She will show more quilts at the next meeting!

  1. Just a note - it's actually called 'Back-basting applique'. I love that flower quilt!
