May 17, 2018 – Landscape Quilting

This class was a follow-up to the Nancy Zieman video on Landscape Quilting which was viewed at our last meeting.  Today’s class could easily be called “Landscape Quilting Made Easy”.  Using a picture of their choice for inspiration and instructions from Nancy Zieman and our instructor, Marilou, attendees created a landscape quilt hanging using only […]

April 26, 2018 – Quilt of Valor Presentation

At the Spring Quilt of Valor presentation at Amvets Post 9, Marilou presented a beautiful patriotic quilt to her son, Don Jacob, U.S. Navy Seabee, and another quilt guild also made presentations.  Each of the five veterans present spoke a few words about their time in service as well as what they are now doing […]

April 26, 2018 – Zipper Quilt

Thanks to Marilou for creating this cute, yet simple, Zipper Quilt Table Runner pattern.  The pattern was for a table runner, which could be adapted to various lengths.  Some attendees made the table runner, while others attached two table runners to make a charity quilt.   We look forward to seeing the finished pieces at […]

April 5, 2018 – Weaving Fabric

Weaving fabric was a very relaxing project for the end of a long day.  Strips of fabric of varying widths (or the same width) were woven together, to be pressed to interfacing to prepare them to be used in a project, such as place mats, hanging, purse, quilt, etc.  The only limit is your imagination!

March 15, 2018 – Cuddle Care

This was an incredibly productive day!  A dozen or so members worked until early afternoon completing more Cuddle Care quilt-tops to quilt at our Cuddle Care-athon in July.  Some experimented with the Disappearing Nine-Patch using some of the 9-patch blocks remaining from the Cuddle Care meeting earlier this year, and others worked on strip quilts.

March 1, 2018 – New Quilting Products

Entering the Jeffersonian was a treat tonight!  The Cuddle Care Committee arrived early to cover the walls with the quilt tops made at the Cuddle Care meeting in January.  Notice the backgrounds in the pictures and you’ll see why we have been so excited about making the nine-patch quilts this year.  These beautiful quilt tops […]

February 24, 2018 – Quilters’ Day Out

After many months of preparation, Quilters’ Day Out arrived and went as scheduled in spite of extreme flooding throughout the area.    Sometimes it takes more than record high water levels to keep quilters away! The arrangement for the guild booths was different this year, and we enjoyed the nice open area and being able […]
