Annual picnic at a very special place!

 A small group of members were treated to a lovely day at the Hillside Inn in Wyoming.  Member Emmy Hartwick and her husband Paul worked with the owners to allow this. Thank you, Emmy and Paul! 

Emmy even led us on a sort of tour of the Inn. Most of us wanted to buy it as a permanent home and retreat center for the Guild!

Oh, yeah, we had show and tell, too.  

Mary Ellen Ames made this Labyrinth quilt.  Val ASchultz quilted it for her.

Martha made a folded Hexie flower.  She mentioned making more for whatever.  Suggestions ranged from Christmas ornaments to making  600 for quilt show favors.

Martha has been painting fabric for possible use in a challenge over at the ArtCGirlz.

MaryLee has been cleaning in anticipation of her move.  She did not want this quilt top, started many years ago.
Someone took it to finish and donate to the silet auction.  ( I think it was Val)

Mary is still playing with Ann Brauer's technique.  This piece was inspired by the skinny strip of batik along the edge.
 This is the house Mary is leaving, commemorated in fabric.

Kathi did some soy wax resist dyeing at a workshop.

Not sure- Kathi may have done this with paintsticks(?).

The August  meeting is at the Genesee County Nursing Home.  Bring your UFO's for show and tell and a challenge!
