The Guild met Mar. 10, 2015 at Thee Garage with six members present. The day was spent sewing on benefit quilts and other projects.

Our business meeting was conducted by president Peggy Bagley Smith. We have been invited to conduct a quilt show at Superior Care Villa Apr. 14 at 2 p.m.

Our project for April will be to make Threat Catcher taught by Linda Clark. Bring ideas for a bag for May.

Future projects: May – bag; June – “15 Minute Scrap project”; July – mittens from old sweaters.

Show and tell: Kathy Wilkening shared three small boys’ quilts featuring cars. One had six large blocks, another had nine blocks, and the last had 25 small blocks. She also shared her benefit quilt and a multicolored Mile a Minute quilt.

Jean Tronstad had a lovely Mile a Minute quilt in blues. She also had an Hour Glass quilt and another of squares she bought at Jean Hanratty’s sale. Little mug mats and microwave bowl hot pads completed her display.

Linda Clark shared her bright poppy wall hanging and a purse.

Peggy Smith shared her Rail Fence quilt in white, gold and browns.

Deb Barth had made a graduation quilt of stars and squares entitled “She thought she could so she did”.

The Guild will meet again Apr. 15 at Thee Garage for the Collapsible Threat Catcher. Remember to bring quilts and other items such as knitting or crocheted things for the quilt show in the afternoon.
