Weyburn Quilter Guild Meeting March

The program committee did it again!  They lined up three very informative mini stations.

Jaynie demonstrated how to use water colour pencils on fabric.  She had a little doodling fun with her sewing machine and black thread.  Then she demoed how to use water colour pencil and Inktense pencils.  There are unlimited ways to use these pencils.  Your imagination is your only limit.  She share a great idea, to use these pencils to fix some sewing oops!  Like threads showing where you don’t want them or using the wrong colour in a project.  Just fix it by adding colour….Voila!!


Debbie showed us step by step how to make a folded Amish potholder.  Then we were each given a pattern.  Time to dig into the stash!!!


Donna showed us how to make a fabric basket.  This project has been grandchild approved.  A great way to present a little gift or sit by the bed to catch the little things grandchildren come visiting with.  The buttons really add to the cute factor!  Her presentation came with a pattern also.


A sneak peek at the “I spy” quilt that will be donated to the Children Center at the Weyburn Public Library.  Jaynie stitched a great  machine quilting design.  All it needs is a binding and Jill offered to do that. Jill also did all the collecting of fabrics and piecing of the top.  Thank you ladies!


Colleen showed a notions bag that uses a carpenter’s metal measuring tape to keep the bag closed.


Debbie and Diana have been super busy. The pile of projects on the table had table runners and tree skirts and other gift items.  They have a super early start  on Christmas gifts!  Wahoo!!!

Marlene shared her journey with the Creative Curve quilt class.  The pillow was the result of the class.  She was disappointed with the number of blocks that passed the accuracy test.  So, not to be defeated, she tried it again and came out with 24 perfect blocks to use in this table runner.

Brenda shared her guild challenge project.  A book tote bag for her next trip to the library.


Another lucky baby in the Wimmer family.  Charlene appliqued each cute puppy and dog bone block.


Yvonne produced a bag using the pattern Esther has inspired many with.  They are all so unique.


Esther presented her guild challenge project.  This fiber art hanging is of an evening sky.
