Closing Banquet 2016

 Here we  are, another year over and we're celebrating a successful year of quilting. We dined with a Chinese buffet at JJ'S restaurant in the Fairway Motel.  Great food, great atmosphere and wonderful company.
 Of course, show and tell was the highlight of the night and here is Marilyn's summer quilt in blues and yellows...she made pillow cases to match.
Jeannie made this wonderful yo-yo quilt.  She made all the yo-yo's and then appliqued them in place on a black background...sure did end up looking wonderful...love scrappys.

 Joanne showed us what could be done with panels..so appropriate...attic windows and balloons rising in the sky....sooooo Sussex!
 I particularly like this one...again an innovative (that should be Joanne's nickname)  way...to use a panel.
 Joyce contributed to our local  Chemo project with this adult size quilt...brings our number of finished quilts currently available to 15...five have been passed out and 4 are waiting to be quilted...a rousing success I would say..

Leigh made this wonderful batik scrappy...so colourful and big.
 Jackie is really into these candle wreath mats..they work up quickly and are wonderful gifts.
 Margaret got her vest finished and was so proud to contribute to show and tell. Considering she is still having some difficulties after her car accident it was great to see that smile.
 Here's the reverse.
 Jean saw this on Pinterest(aha, another enthusiast) and just had to make it.  I believe it is called "Hanging out"...cute, eh?
 Kay did her "three dudes" pattern and made this bright and cheerful table topper.
And here's madam Muriel with a dishcloth on her head...she didn't want to get wet in the rain....looks almost like a doily there.

Have a great summer ladies!

Visitors today, May 24, 2016

Our meeting today was short and sweet with a report from Vera about the quilt show and one from Muriel about the bus trip  to P.E.I. coming up in June .
 All these ladies you see are from our guild and from our sister guild, Marco Polo from Saint John.  The pictures following are from the show and tell...if you recognize yourself, great ...if you don't recognize the person holding the wonderful quilts they are from Marco Polo.  What an amazing show and tell.
After we all got inspired to run home and start sewing we played strip poker with three tables and three winners. Then we had a great lunch and wished our sister quilters a safe journey home and come on back anytime.  I will refrain from commenting about the rest of the pictures since there are many names I cannot remember...soooooo....just enjoy the show and tell following.
