Hello! Here is a recap of July’s meeting. New location! New members! Fun times. We are now meeting in the community room in the Sobey’s on Preston. It’s nice and bright.
First Jaclyn gave us a talk on block printing. Jaclyn was lucky enough to take a blocking printing class with Lizzy House at Quilt Con in February, and she brought all of her tools to show us. It was very informative and most of us are keen to learn more!
We began show and tell with our travelling quilts. Round 1 first.
Sonya added this ADORABLE block to Julie’s neighborhood quilt.
I made a pebble for Carly’s pebble quilt.
Jaclyn made a nice improv tree for Bev’s quilt.
Bev made these adorable twinkle stars for my star-themed quilt! I love them.
Kim added some beautiful color crosses to Sheila’s quilt which is all geometric shapes.
Kelly made some pretty log cabins for Sonya.
Sheila got creative for Jaclyn’s seasons quilt and made a beautiful sunset over the lake using a circular flying geese paper piecing pattern.
This is Julie’s addition to Lisa’s quilt. Fractal block. So pretty.
