Just as the kids get back into school, it's time for us quilters to get back into our meeting schedule.
SEPTEMBER 11TH MEETING 6:30 PM. Bring your machines & projects. Hopefully, Donna and her mobile fabric truck will be there, and maybe some demos. Looking forward to seeing you! As always bring a friend.
It's been a busy summer at my house and for most of us I'm sure. Haven't blogged during the summer since it was too much fun to travel, spend time outdoors, work in the garden, bbq on the patio, family weddings etc etc!
In June, member Fiona spoke on quilting ergonomics to help us all feel better while quilting.

Celia organized a mystery modern scrap bag swap for August and everyone worked on creating something from the mixture of fabrics. After adding our fabric to the bags, we randomly choose pieces and using the provided pattern made scrappy blocks. Hopefully we can finish these up soon.
SHOW & TELL
Quilt Activity to preserve your quilt portfolio:
While visiting my daughter this summer she had a list of places around town she wanted to photograph her quilts. She wanted something more interesting than just placing the quilt on a bed. We spent 2 afternoons running around town taking pictures of her quilts in all kinds of locations. Such fun!
So when she came to visit me we took our quilts to the beach where we started them on retreat. It's great fun to have an album of a bit more interesting quilt photos.
So grab a friend to help and make a list of cool places : the beach, bridge, parks, over a brick wall, statues, benches etc.
