March Meeting Recap

Still Trying Out Our New Space!

We tried a different setup this time, so we could view a slide show from Quiltcon created by Anita.

Scraps and other goodies

Pretty fabric bundles for the raffle

 Colorful Block Lotto Entries
They were won by Theresa.

Here is a sample of the next Block Lotto.

Instructions can be found here:

Committee Reports

  • Greer gave an updated budget report.
  • Lisa gave us all of the details for the Ladore Retreat. Payment is due by 5/1.
  • Marie talked about starting a "Lending Library" between guild members. A Goodreads group has been started to track it.
  • Eva told us about our next big charity project, which will once again be for "Room to Grow". She supplied members with fabric and batting to make quilts for babies up to 3 years old.

Here are some quilts that were made in the past:

Quiltcon Recap

Hayden, Caroline, Aleeda and Anita shared their thoughts and photos from Quiltcon 2018 in Pasadena, CA.

There were many inspiring and thought-provoking quilts at the show

Show and Tell

Anita says each large unit is made up of 4 smaller blocks.

She also showed us an efficient way to sew your quilt sleeve into your binding.

Tina made "cage comforters" for cats in shelters with recycled materials for the batting.

Arlene started this quilt in 2000! It is made with Japanese fabrics.

Jody also completed a quilt that was started years ago.

And look at her new sneakers!

Diane made this quilt with scraps from the scrap table.

She also brought a vintage Herringbone top that is hand stitched!

Maureen started this quilt for her nephew at the retreat. She calls it "Kevin 2.0".

Lisa made this quilted pillow cover in Victoria's Herringbone class.

She also made this commission quilt for a guy, and used shirt ticking in her red white and blue design.

Caroline made her dress out of Carolyn Friedlander fabric from a Colette pattern.

Margaret hand quilted this quilt, which is an experiment with recycled fabric.

Diana made this quilt in a Sarah Bond class.

The April meeting address is 475 FDR Drive @ Grand Street, NYC.
The regular meeting will run from 10am-2pm, but we can stay until 10pm if we want, like a mini-retreat!
