Weyburn Quilt Guild Christmas 2015

We started the evening with a wonderful turkey supper catered by Myrna and her crew at M&M concessions.

After a brief meeting we had lots of great things for show and tell.

This first picture has a great story and that was all we saw – a picture!  Christa Kurtz had spent some time in Regina before coming to our Christmas meeting on her way home.  She carefully put her piece for show and tell in her car.  After a stop at Chapters she came back to her car and a lady waiting to talk to her.  End result – the lady had seen Christa’s art work in her car and wanted to know where she could get one.  As Christa had made it herself (painted plywood with vinyl  letters) the lady then asked to buy it.  Which she did hence Christa just had a picture until she makes another one.

Charlene showed us a couple of her latest pieces.  Charlene and Debbie went with the other Torquay guild members to their retreat at Circle Square ranch and it looks like lots of work was done there.

Bonnie showed us her recently finished batik quilt that she made for her daughter.

Michele found some fabric she liked on a trip and then had to look for more to go with it and find a pattern to use.  The end result was beautiful.

Michele also shared a strip twist quilt.

Adeline completed many bags after the mini-retreat.  It makes me sad that I missed getting Esther’s help that day but judging by the number of bags we have seen since that day there are now a few people that could help me!

I believe this our first piece that has been finished for our Quilt Show challenge.  This is Helen’s piece that is hanging, pink and rectangular thus filling all three criteria.

The challenge piece matches the memory quilt Helen finished with memories of her granddaughter’s first year.
