some members need our prayers



Jackie S., fighting cancer, needs us to send our good thoughts and prayers her way as she undergoes major surgery on Sept 6.

Pat G. is also undergoing cancer treatments. We send Pat our wishes for comfort and healing, as well.

Note to members: both of these lovely women are welcoming heart blocks from us as signs of our good wishes. For Jackie, send a red 6.5" unfinished heart block, any pattern. For Pat, use country colors on off-white/beige, also a 6.5" unfinished heart block, any pattern. Please sign your blocks.

Work and Socialize

At our August meeting we brought projects to work on. After a short business meeting and Show and Tell, we socialized and worked individually. We usually have a low key meeting like this once a year. Next month we will have a speaker again. She'll talk to us about making landscape quilts.

Jacquie and Jolene did more announcements and reminders about preparing for next year's show.




Show and Tell .. this interesting shaped top is by Nancy E.


Julie C. made this beautiful quilt, and...


...it's interesting on the back, too.


Kaye G. made this cute baby quilt.


Now that Molly is no longer president, she has time to finish some quilts! Here's her watermelon quilt.


This beauty is also by Molly.


This one won Honorable Mention at the quilters' show in Duluth! It's a beauty! The pattern is from The Quilter's Gift.


Pat showed us some new gadgets by Clover.


During our informal time, Julie worked on a soft and pretty baby blanket.


People enjoyed socializing...


...and talking about quilts.


See you next month on Tuesday, Sept. 11, at the Eagan Community Center!
