The Patchwork Quilt Guild met Oct. 8-9 at the Marmarth Community Center to make benefit Chinese Coin quilts. Eight members sewed Oct. 9 and enjoyed a potluck meal. Linda Logsdon surprised us by coming from Minnesota to sew with us, and she shared quilted articles she had made in the past years. Several ladies also sewed Oct. 10.

Oct. 13, 2015, the Guild met at Thee Garage with six members to sew British walking mittens using old sweaters, fleece, batting, etc.
We discussed ideas for future meetings and decided on making a centerpiece or table runner using circles folded into hexagons. Kathy Wilkening had a sample. She used 2 1/4 yards cut into 15 inch circles, which when finished, are 7 1/2 inches. This fabric included the backing. Bring something to trace to make the circle the size you want – it can be smaller. This could be for autumn, Christmas or whatever season you wish. Bring your sewing machine and hand sewing needles.
Our next meeting will be Tuesday, Nov. 10, at Thee Garage at 10 a.m. We welcome new members and visitors.
