That is what our quilters guild calendar said on Feb 12th. After listing our usual announcements, and the day’s activities, there it was. In bold print – Bring Chocolate to Share
We did – and then some. Even the Hershey twins joined us and passed out Hershey’s mini candy bars.
They were a surprise – not on our calendar.
For Sew & Tell we had these quilts on the walls:
Deanna Hoy’s T-shirt quilt – made from her brother’s rock & roll concert T-shirts. Quilted by RoxAnne Borean.
The following items on the wall do not have photos (yet):
Eileen Roberson. Black and tan, rectangles made from free-table scraps.
Pat Gomes. Raggedy Quilts one from Country Cloth Class, two from free table.
This quilt is a collage of California’s National Parks. Linda Van B. made it. [She may be hiding behind it]

Cut day is when we choose fabrics for a comfort quilt pattern, and cut the pieces needed to make the quilt. These get put into a bag, along with the pattern instructions, and batting. Now this bag is called a “kit” and it can be checked out to members that want to work on it.
Some members like to piece the quilt top together, some prefer to do the quilting only, and others like doing the entire process from piecing to binding. This makes it fun for all.
Those of us who can’t cut straight with a ruler take photos…
The Fabric Room – organized the day before.
Tough to choose!
Some of us are excited by purple
Selecting the pattern(s) is very important
Measure Twice & Cut Once!
We have a lot of fun doing this!
Someone has to coordinate this chaos!
The kits are piling up and ready to distribute!

Monday (9/7) we met to catch up with our fellow members, turn in our applications for Quilt Fair (QF), admire our members summer projects and sign up for jobs to be done during QF week.*
A lot of comfort quilts were accomplished over the summer – I will be adding them to our little “slide show” later this week. Yours Truly is up to her eye-balls with more QF applications to enter, so I’m not making any promises 😉
* At a later date I may be posting in the “Members” menu, QF specifics (jobs still open to fill, the listing of QF Chairpersons – basically whatever our QF Chair would like to post there!)
