Welcome back members to our first quilt meeting of the year.

Colleen is holding a beautiful landscape piece that Michele created from a picture.  Her technique is strip landscaping.  This creation was entered into the Weyburn Arts Council Banner project.  Congratulations, Michele, in being chosen to have your work accepted.  It is now a banner on our Souris River boardwalk.

Using a kit, Charlene made this lovely quilt for her grandson.  It was quilted by Angela in Estevan.

Esther has created two colourful batik pieces — a quilt and a table runner.

Lydia has finished a two fabric bargello quilt and it was beautifully quilted by Colleen.

Sharynne started this cross stitched picture in 2011 and proudly displayed its completion.

Jill showed a Lug-nut quilt design that is on its way to England for a wedding gift.  She also showed  a sewing organizer bag that Marnelle had taught a group.

Colleen, using her new long arm quilting machine, has completed 13 quilts.  The first red and blue one was done from the guild cupboard using a maple leaf motif and cowboys.  This earns Colleen an opportunity to put her name in for a draw at the December meeting.

The second quilt was done at a retreat and is a Dr. Seuss quilt. “My Happy Place”  is the quilt design used.  It is nice and soft with a minke backing.

The third quilt is an interesting pattern she pieced and quilted using  a Majestic Mountain quilt pattern and the quilted design is a spiral square.  We look forward to seeing more quilts with long arm quilting by Colleen.

Jaynie had a new piece as a part of an online challenge with a “nest” theme.  She was inspired with a wasp’s nest.  Most of us would run, but Jaynie used her creativity to express it in fabric!

Remember that the next program at the October 3 Guild meeting will be on Paper Piecing and so we hope members will bring samples they have done to show during this presentation.
