May show and tell and trunk show

Connie Grimsley made this for Community Service
 We had another great meeting in May!!!
It started with a nice show and tell by members and ended with an inspiring trunk show from member Irene Bow!

Connie has also learned to do needlepunch

Val Schultz made this digitally manipulated photo art quilt

Sue Privatera also made a nice quilt for Community Service

Pat Gardner (turquoise) and Shirley Lapp (greens) made these "going buggy" quilts.

Pat also finished her landscape quilt

The girls in back couldn't see it! 

Mary Kozub finished her Ann Brauer piece

Lorraine West made a pretty new bag

Lorraine also made this jelly roll quilt for Community Service
Mary Lu Hodgins, just returned from her winter sailing trip, told us about some batiks she had donated for the raffle.  She visited this small shop where they sold the batiks and was offered a tour.  She said they took her out back where all the fabrics were hanging on clothes lines to dry.  She felt like she was in Heaven!  Too bad she had forgotten her camera. But the story was till fun.  And a lucky guild member now has the fabrics to play with.

Irene wowed us last year at the quilt show, so we were all thrilled to get to enjoy more of her work.  She sat right on the stage and told a little story about each piece as it was shown.  I think we all agreed it was one of the more fantastic trunk shows we've seen! 

In June we will get a lesson on the "square in a square" rulers and some quilts we can make with it.
Marija Vijcic will also be returning to teach her "cheater bargello" class.  Check your newsletter for details!
