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.
