Can you believe that we’re now in June? Graduations, weddings, proms, dance recitals, gardening, vacations and of course finishing up on those quilt projects. The summer is upon us now after a disappointing spring but there is still plenty of time to work on quilts, especially on a rainy day. Hopefully you can schedule at least one day a month to work on those projects, getting ready for the next quilt show. Perhaps complete a placemat or two for the community service or maybe complete an item or two for the boutique table. The possibilities are endless once you set your mind to it.
In case you’re interested, there will be signup sheets for the workshops to be held in the fall, Connie Sue Haidle (introduction and intermediate hand applique) will be presenting in September. Shirley Fisher will be presenting a workshop in October (perfecting your applique skills). If you haven’t attempted hand applique, now is the time. In November, the guild will have a non-quilting presentation by our members (card making, Chinese painting, water colors and calligraphy). Perhaps you have a skill that you’d like to present, please contact Lori Bessette for a program idea. We will be planning a member auction in February of 2019, so set aside the fabrics that you have lost interest in or the pattern that you will never use. If you have unused templates, that could be another item for the sale. You can download the newsletter here QBS June Newsletter
