Recap of 6/15/12 Meeting

If you missed the recent meeting, you missed a good one!  The CT Quilters were very productive this month:

v      We worked on the “Country Quilt” – it’s different from our usual pattern - the design around the panel is looking great and the layout is coming together – we’ll continue to work on it next meeting.

Ironing Center Panel
v      We cut fabric and made up more “A Block” kits – the kits are flying out of the basket at Crafty Threads shop – thank you so much to all of our at-home volunteers!
v      We ironed and assembled more backings – we have several quilts out to be long-armed

v      We sewed some more blocks to make up some more tops – see next bullet.
v      We made packages of blocks ready to layout and sew into tops – we now have five – count ‘em – FIVE tops ready to lay out next meeting!

v      We had two special guests helping us – this young lady sewed at least a mile of bindings (yes, we measured)!
We also snarfed up some very excellent German Chocolate Upside Down Cake – thank you, Pat!  Some of us are still dreaming about it …

And then, as an unexpected surprise, we had a great Show and Tell.  One of our members brought in some of the 1930s quilts that her grandmother had made that she was making labels for:

Aren’t these wonderful?!!

Our next meeting will be Friday, July 6th … mark your calendars now!
