Why You Should Join a Quilting Guild

I have “sew” much fun in my quilting guild that I wanted to encourage you to join one if you haven’t already. My large guild of over 300 members has several smaller groups that meet once a month, called quilting circles. Here’s a report of Rainbow group’s July meeting:

Biding DemoScrap Basket Sensations QuiltsWe had a demo on binding and how to finish the ends so that they are neat and tidy.

We also had a book report on two fabulous scrappy quilt books that use jelly roll strips. They are called Scrap Basket Sensations and Scrap Basket Surprises. Our guild president, Bobbi has already made a few quilts from the book.

Scrap Basket SensationsScrap Basket SurprisesI liked them so much that I ordered several copies to sell on my website and it will be available the middle of August. I can’t wait!

The best part of our meeting, by far, is the show and tell. We have some absolutely talented ladies and it’s such a treat to see their work.

Karen's Rhapsody QuiltHand-Dyed Fabric

One of our members, Karen, won a weekend retreat with Ricky Tims and we were all jealous!! She dyed her own fabrics and designed a unique Rhapsody Quilt.

After such a fun and uplifting meeting I was inspired to go home and sew. That’s the point, right?

    humm….think I might look up a circle in Woodstock! Your pictures are inspiring, and I would like to order a copy of each book……hold them for me, and I will pick them up and pay for them when I get home at the end of August. Love you, Mama
