   Project for the day was to make a small runner or banner using the Wonky ruler. We enjoyed a potluck meal at noon with a farewell cake for Kathy Wilkening.

  The basket raffle was brought by Neila Curry and won by Joan Grammond.

   We shook a pair of dice to determine how many fabrics we will be using in our individual projects for June.

   Kathy Wilkening thanked us for welcoming her to the Guild years ago and we wished her well in her move to Truman, MN. We will truly miss her, her ideas and enthusiasm.

   In September, Jean Tronstad’s sister, Evelyn, will be here to teach us fiber art using Cheryl Phillips Squedge rulers.

   Show and Tell:

   Neila Curry and Kay Webb showed the pansy, green and white quilt they made. Linda Clark shared a Christine Berrie Sew It Bag, and a 301 Singer 1952, which she had purchased. She also shared her trapezoid shaped project from last month done in colors of her initials: lemon lime, licorice and coconut. Her wall hanging was of batik tie shapes in the form of an ongoing S.

   Kathy Wilkening shared her paper pieced “Prairie Star” which she made for her husband Don which took her several years to complete. Sharon Huether had a lovely batik wall hanging of squares with folded petals and buttons.

   Our next meeting will be June 12 at St. John’s Church hall at 10 a.m. We will order out for lunch.
