The thing that kept Monday’s guild meeting from looking like a sweat shop, were the smiles and laughter.
There was a crew making “quilt sandwiches” – basting the top-batting-backing together to get them ready to quilt. Once that was done, the “sandwich” gets handed off to the quilting crew, and soon it is ready for the “finishers” – those who like to sew bindings. Once finished, the quilt becomes a Comfort Quilt and the guild’s signature label is sewn on. Piece of cake, right?
Some quilt patterns are tougher than others, but we all had fun catching up from the holidays.
Disclaimer: Photos were taken at lunchtime after a lot of ladies left. Our photographer did not have enough coffee or sleep that morning.
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!)
