August Meeting

The August meeting of the Vance Quilts R Us guild was another fun evening for quilting friends.  Winners for the evening included Barbara Bockiaro, winning the July Block of the Month; Lynn Patiky won the Fat Quarter Frenzy, and Kathy Solomon won the raffle for the gift certificate from Quilts Like Crazy.

Guild members were shown the next Block of the Month by Faith Smith.  The four leaf blocks will need to be completed for the October meeting, since there will be no business meeting in September.

Our members continue to awe us with their wonderful work.  Below is a quilt made by Peggy Stocks.

Hassie Boddy shares her Twisted Sister quilt made from men's wool trousers.

Karen Hanny shows her hand appliqued and quilted Baltimore Album wall hanging.

The activity for the evening was lead by Belinda Leach and Debbie Powell.  Kits were handed out and instructions were given for a fabric flower that can be used to embellish quilts, handbags or lapels.
