Fabric for Store

Reminder - Jacquie and Jolene requested that we prepare FQs for the fabric sales at our next show. I am going through my stash and setting things aside, FQs and other pieces, too. Hope you are doing the same! These are big sellers at the store.

July Picnic - Lots of Pictures

Every July our guild has a picnic instead of our usual indoor meeting.

Two things we always do in July: (1) eat lots of good food, of course, and..

(2) enjoy a few laughs.

Another thing we always do is give a thank-you gift to our out-going president. Molly was very surprised and pleased to get M&M blocks! She's a walking M&Ms Advertisement, so we thought this would be very appropriate.

We also do a patriotic block exchange in July. This year only two people participated!

Here's Show and Tell... Vicki M. made this quilt for her daughter.

Jackie shows us the heart blocks she has received so far which she said is "a little overwhelming" but she really appreciates them. Healing thoughts and hugs go with you, Jackie!

Sally shows us "Quilt Number Nine."

Sandi showed us that she is now a Cover Girl! Her quilt is on the cover of the September issue of "The Quilter" magazine. (Yes, it is only July, and the September issue is already out.)

Trisha made a beautiful and soft baby quilt for a co-worker.

This gorgeous quilt is made by Edel Ruth. I believe Nanette is going to quilt it.

Can you tell it was a windy evening? What a beautiful day for a picnic! Many years it has been hot and sultry, but this year was pleasantly cool.... a tad too windy, but it was more comfortable than some of the hot picnics we have sweltered through in the past.

Bring projects to work on in August! We'll have a work-on-something evening rather than a formal presentation. We'll be back at the Eagan Community Center on Tuesday, August 14. See you then!
