Our June meeting was our potluck picnic, held at Linda Andert’s on Cedar Lake. Thank you, Linda, for opening up your place for our event. It was a beautiful evening and the food was really good a usual. Fun was had by all. A few people were working on their barn quilts during the evening. Thank you, Linda, for making this project possible at your home, too.
Prizes were awarded for the Sewing Bee Contest. Linda Volkert volunteered and judged the different teams the evening of the May meeting while the quilts were sewed together. Linda voted Team 3 as the winner of the project that evening. Team 3 was Becky, Eileen, Meg B, and JoDee. Team 4 won the contest while the quilts were displayed at A Little Piece of Mind during the month of May. Team 4 was Jean K, Barb R, Mary B, Linda J, and Betty S. Gift certificates for A Little Piece of Mind were awarded to the winners.
4 tops were given to the guild from Mary Johnson, a former member of our guild. Becky volunteered to help cut kits for the caring quilts.
Farm Girl Projects:
Pam Caduff is working with a group that are signed up to do the 48 blocks. 4 blocks per month is the requirement. 5 people had completed the required 4 blocks at the meeting. If you completed all 4 blocks of the project, your name was put in a drawing for the evening. Barb Rogers name was drawn and she won a Farm Girl pig pattern.
Mary Gosse and Bridget Larson are heading up another group for the Farm Girl quilt. Mary had a handout for this project. This project is an open project where you can design your own project, creating what you want. It can be big or small, whatever you choose. You just need to give a copy of your plan/projection to Mary or Bridget to also qualify for raffle drawings. This project will start next month. See Mary for the form if you missed the meeting.
