April 2022 “Sewciable” Meeting

Ann and Mary opened the meeting early at 6:35 because we needed to have a short business meeting before we began our social time. (Mr. Pat Love sharpened scissors for us while we met.)

Items of Business

  • 1- New Meeting location? – Church is still working on sale of building. Please share suggestions with Ann L. or Mary.
  • 2- Quilt show, every year or every other year? After much decision, it was decided that we should invite Connie (quilt show chairperson) to come talk to the group to help us make a decision. (Update: Connie will speak at our June meeting – and bring along a “trunk show” of her own quilts as well.)
  • 3-Adoption quilts – Mary needs volunteers to sign up for these. Due date was changed to June 1st.

Sew-ciable (Show and Tell plus social time)

Cindy spoiled us by bringing food to the meeting! It was delicious! We had a “sewciable”. Very enjoyable to be able to talk and see other members’ work.

Vernette’s Christmas tree table runner and matching tree skirt.

Vernette’s quilt that she made with squares that Mary Pixley cut out at her shop. Over 9,000 half-inch squares. Made in honor of her friend, Mary.

Rheta’s Easter table runner and “Bad Bunny” wall hanging for Easter.

Ann A.’s cork Passport and Vaccine card holder she made for her upcoming cruise. Very compact and handy!

Enola made this quilt out of a panel and Gail quilted it for her. It is a panel of the statue of the Indian maiden in Chamberlain, SD. She is holding a star quilt. The name of the statue is Dignity of Earth and Sky.

Barbara M. finished her candle mat from the class that Phyllis taught at the quilt show. Barbara also finished her Twister Wreath wall hanging that she learned how to make in the Featherweight Club.

Catherine made Cat Dishtowels for the boutique.

Phyllis made a wheel chair quilt.

Amy showed us the quilts that Ann A. and Catherine made for Crossroads.

Thanks to our historian, Sylvia, for providing photos and documenting business discussed at our April meeting.
