SUCCESSFUL MAY MEETING

 

IMG_0133These are two of the “embellished spheres” that were made by our guest speaker
Joyce Partridge.
The workshop was enjoyed by all the attendees.
Joyce is also a wonderful quilter, making almost all of her quilts by hand –
hand piecing, as well as hand quilting.IMG_0138 Joyce completes up to four bed-sized quilts per year, and took the time to talk to members after her presentation, answering their numerous questions.
Thank you Joyce!IMG_0136IMG_0139There was a large collection of finished Community Quilts delivered to our meeting too.IMG_0134IMG_0135 The Community Quilts Workshop, held the following Tuesday, was busy, with labels being added to all the finished quilts, quilt tops being pin-basted ready for quilting, binding being added, and new quilt “kits” being prepared.
Everyone also shared a wonderful potluck lunch.
24 quilts were donated to two different programs this month!
Keep up the great work.

Here are just a few of the many “show and tell” quilts shown in MayIMG_0095 IMG_0096 IMG_0098One of our members brought an antique quilt top that was given to her.
What a beauty!IMG_0146Watch for upcoming news about our annual June dinner, coming soon!

    Did the speaker give instructions on how she made the beautiful embellished balls? Thanks so much for letting me be a part of this group even though I live so far away, in south Alabama!
