March Meeting

Well the Paris Quilt Guild had their third meeting for this year and it was a very interesting meeting.  Everyone always says that they look forward to our monthly meeting because there are so many creative items and ideas shared.
Before I get into the meeting, I would like to talk about the group that met on the last Thursday of the month.  It is a day that we call "Play Day".  We come together at the civic center and just sew or knit or crochet.  Well this past "play day" we had a lesson on foundation piecing from Kathy Doane.  She showed us some nice techniques and helped to take the "fear"out of foundation or paper piecing.  She also  brought in a couple of miniature quilts that she had made that looked very difficult but with the technique that Kathy showed us I feel that I can paper piece a quilt.
Happy to see Theresa.  She caught on right away.

Isn't this a cutie?

Wow look a finished block.

Denise and her applique. Can't wait to see this quilt when it is done.

Now you see that we are very busy on the 4th Thursday so if you have some time come out and share with us on 4th Thursday, maybe you have a technique you would like to share.

Now what you have all been waiting for; These are pictures from the last meeting including some show and tell item, our show and tell time is the best time.

Helen won the door prize fabric, see how happy she is. We are always happy to get more fabric.

Me, modeling the jacket I just finished.

Helen shared this little knick knack that says, " blessed are the piecemakers"
We quilters love stuff like this.

Helen just got a new great-granddaughter so she has been having a  good time making little dresses for her.

Helen's sneeky snake quilt. 

Helen created this beautiful quilt.

This quilt is actually pages for a quilted book. But Elizabeth made a quilt instead.

Elizabeth's daughter saw a quilt similar to this one on TV so she took a picture of the one on tv asked Elizabeth to make her one.  Elizabeth created the pattern and here it is. 

Mildred shared these needle punched Micky and Minnie she made for her niece.
Awesome job Mildred.

This is Carole and she is one of this year's quilt top winner. So we spent time working on her quilt.

Oh I forgot to mention that we had pizza. 

A bolt of batting was divided for cuddle quilts.

I think Judith is over worked. Slow down Judith.

So that is the end to our meeting for March. We always have such a good time. See you at the next meeting.
