February Guild Meeting

    This was an enjoyable meeting, although they really all are enjoyable.  We have been working on Quilts of Valor as our charity project this year.  The January meeting was spent sorting blocks and beginning the putting together process and this meeting we were able to see the fruits of our labors.  Several members took blocks home to finish putting them together into tops.  Here are the results:
String Blocks

Half Log Cabins - I love the setting!

More String Blocks

And a sampler

All of the tops were taken home by someone to quilt and they will be donated to some local veterans.

Gina gave a program on Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Mountain Majesty. This was lots of fun and I can't wait to get some of these other projects done, so I can start one. Here is Gina's demo quilt:

Isn't it great?

 I hope to have it and my Split Nine Patch done by the time Bonnie comes to our guild in September 2015,  We are on her teaching schedule and the planning has already begun for a trunk show and workshop.  She will be teaching in three Missouri locations during that visit.  Keep checking in and I will be posting more details as they emerge.

Keep on stitchin'


  1. the quilts of valor are all very nice.

  2. Your pictures look great! Just to set the record straight, Bonnie will be going to four Missouri locations while she is here - Kirksville, Marshall, Springfield and St. Louis. Won't she be a busy lady!


Thanks for visiting!
