July Guild Meeting

In all the hubbub of last week’s events, I still managed to make it to guild meeting, but only by the skin of my teeth.

They had me scheduled to present the program, and I was going to teach them all English Paper Piecing, and since I hadn’t given them any time to come up with an alternate program, I felt I really needed to be there and do it like I said I would.

We were moving My Cowboy from one hospital to another, so I just made him go with me since it was on the way. Was it mean of me to make him go along and wait for me to attend the meeting and give the program before continuing on our way?

He was a good sport about it.

The meeting was pretty short, since we’re not in the middle of any big things right now. The show is over, retreat is a ways off, and it was Fair Week in Kirksville, so some of the members were absent for that reason.

And we still had lots of show and tell!

Here’s Rose Marie with her Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt, Old Tobacco Road:

Liz showed a little patriotic wall hanging:

Joan’s 6-year-old granddaughter pieced her first quilt while visiting her grandmother this summer! They used one of the Project Linus free patterns.

Elsie showed an old family heirloom signature quilt that she recently got possession of:

Here’s a close-up of some of it. It’s wonderful.

Kathy’s husband made this quilt for a firefighter friend of theirs who lost his home in a fire and was badly burned in the process.

Susan finished a quilt from a workshop she had taken previously:

Sorry for the terrible pictures, but the room setup makes it very difficult to get good shots of show and tell.

When show & tell was over, I handed out little kits, and they all set to learning how to English paper piece. Look at them all working so hard!

And I think there are some new converts to the technique. It makes a great carry-around project!

Then I skedaddled on out of there so My Cowboy and I could continue our journey. He seemed none the worse for wear, having had to wait on me.

  1. Tell Rose Marie I love that quilt! Love the pattern and love the colors!

  2. Quilting is relaxing. It was probably good for him to come. 🙂 I love the Old Tobacco Road one! I wish I had been there to play around with the English Paper Piecing. It’s on my list of things to do!

  3. So did you give him a kit so he could learn to paper piece too?
