Catching up and Moving Forward

Getting back on track with the blog so if anything is out of place or needs to be added let me know. 

 Here is our block of the month for October.

Let's see if everyone can bring one!  We need to increase our participation.  Wouldn't it be nice to win enough to make a quilt? All you need to do to be entered is to make "one" block.

Here are the blocks we received from our September block of the month.

We have a new name for our newsletter...Guild Gazette! Thanks to all who voted! Belinda Leach won a $25 gift card for her suggested name of the newsletter.

Faith has challenged everyone to make pillowcases to be delivered to Ronald McDonald house.  Here are some pictures of the cute pillowcases we have received so far.

Monica Sleboda made several pillowcases.  Isnt' it cute?  She wasn't monkeying around. This is one of many.

Here is a pillowcase by BK McCloud.  Adorable! Someone will really like that neat fabric!

More from Janell Jackson.  Beautiful cosmic fabric.  It is out of this world!  I'm sure someone will love putting their pretty little head on this pillowcase at night!

Speaking of charities.  Miss Lou's still has loads of fabric for charity quilts.  They are pre-cut pieces so you can sew them up in a snap.  There is always someone in need that I am sure would be greatful to receive these. Don't forget to get yours!  Here is one of a few that  Rachel Wessells made

 And another from Patty McCrary

Thanks to all that contribute their time to making these lovely quilts!
During our September meeting, Donna Wesseman showed us this unique tool for turning tubes of fabric.  

 It would make life much easier when making something like this beautiful table runner that Donna made below.

And now for our show and tell, some of these pictures are from our previous meeting in August.

Check out this beautiful quilt that Belinda Alston made for her father.

Don't forget the November quilt challenge is coming up and December 8th will be our Christmas pot luck.  Bring a $10.00 quilt related wrapped gift. We need a new chair for the hospitality committee for 2015. Please let us know if you can help!
