January meeting pictures

Our January program was a wonderful lesson on paper piecing presented by Jessie, Kelleigh, and Lori. We divided up into two groups - one for those either new to paper piecing or needing a bit of encouragement and another for those who are more experienced who wanted to learn more about how to take a design and turn it into a paper pieced pattern.

Kelleigh brought LOTS of samples of her own paper pieced projects to show us to whet our appetites!

I think it's safe to say we all learned something new and were inspired to try paper piecing if we've never done it before or to branch out and try something new if we're experienced paper piecers!  Our swap for February is to bring something we have paper pieced to swap so we have the opportunity right off the bat to try out this skill. Thanks to Kelleigh, Jessie, and Lori for a great program!

After the program, we had our usual time of "Sew and Share" show and tell. So much beautiful work by our guild members and visitors.

 And finally, last but certainly not least, this quilt (below) which was a joint effort of several guild members. It will be given to St. Gabriel's Church for their auction in the fall as thanks for the use of the room in their Ministry Center for our regular guild meetings.

Isn't it beautiful!

Mark your calendars now, friends, for our February meeting, Tuesday night, February 23, from 6-8. Our program will feature information on how to use the many resources of the Modern Quilt Guild, including all of their informative webinars. As always, bring your quilts to share!

  1. Thanks my friend for sharing these brilliant January meeting pictures. All the stuff presented in this event looks so creative. My daughter will also be participating in the upcoming art fest at the event venues in Florida. She is working hard for this event!!
