Guild Meeting

Last night was Material Girls Quilt Guild and I was armed with a full battery in my camera for show and tell, and there was very few! I think a lot of gals are working out in their flowers beds and not sewing as much....although around here lately we need to build an Ark we have had so much rain (with more to come). Below is the block for May. I really liked this one and especially so with using the line, Patisserie. And my friend and I have never won the blocks since we have been going to meetings in 1 1/2 years.....well Sandy M. won them last night....hurrah....15 of them.!



She will probably kill me for showing this picture, but hey, we were having fun! She had liked this month's block so well that she made a tablerunner from the block pattern...very cute!

Our LQS had us make a block (I had posted mine before) and Karen put all of them together and quilted the quilt and is now binding it for the ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) fund raiser and competition. It is gorgeous and amazing how it all came together. The guild will fund the shipping and we will see if we hear back anything. It had to be at least 36x45 and ours is 100x100! Great job girls!


And just because we haven't seen any sun in awhile, I am also adding a picture of my beautiful columbine....I sure wish they bloomed all summer!

We didn't have very many for show and tell at our guild either. Must be the weather! Love the color of your columbines! :0)
