November 2018 Recap

Gigi Henries Jones from Vai Girl brought her beautiful fabrics!

"Vai" comes from the name of her tribe in Liberia.

Thanks to Gotham Quilts (and Gigi) for some raffle goodies!

  • Winter Retreat sign-ups are open.
  • Our Holiday party in December will have food and a "White Elephant" swap.
  • The Summer retreat is June 28-30.

Round Robin Quilts
Sue brought in two centers made from leftover OBW blocks to start two new quilts.

Summer Challenge: Game Board Quilts
Andrea's quilt is inspired by the game "Clue", and each block represents a weapon, room, and/or person from the game.

Lisa's quilt is her interpretation of the Parcheesi board.

Charity Quilts
Maureen, who is our Charity chairperson, brought in this completed quilt with blocks created by many guild members.

And this one, which has a masculine feel.

Plus, another Community quilt has been completed, should a member need a comforting gift.

Winter Challenge: "Art" Quilt
Chris introduced a new challenge where members create a block that is a piece of a larger artwork, without seeing the entire artwork first.
