May brought us a great guild meeting! We started off with announcements from Sandra:
- You can click here to see all of the winners from the UQSM show that just happened in Sandy. Kathy Porter, who taught us last month, had a prize winning quilt you can see.
- If you'd like to do a block for Kathy Porter, Past President of Utah Quilt Guild, reply to this email and instructions will be sent to you (I couldn't get them to upload!)
- West Haven Days is looking for quilts. Click here for more information.
- Table Quilts are needed for Quilt Fest again this year. We passed around flyers and a sign-up sheet during the meeting, but if you'd like more info reply to this email and I'll forward it to you.
- Sandra is asking for mini-quilt for Quilt Fest again this year.
Next, we did our own announcements:
- Next month we are having our first Mini-Quilt Swap! Bring a mini-quilt to swap, no bigger than 24" on each side, gift wrapped (or at least in a bag so we can't tell what it is). It's sure to be a lot of fun and everyone who brings a mini will go home with one!
- Because we are doing a mini-quilt swap, we want to do a Mini-Quilt Sew & Tell next month. Bring your mini-quilts (labeled) and show them off. We'll have a table all set up so we can lay them out.
Our own Karen did another fabulous presentation entitled "Two Rulers, Two Cans of Beans and a Spider Hand" on how to properly cut using rulers and a rotary cutter. I know I definitely learned some great new tips and especially how to help a beginner understand how to cut correctly!
Sue Tubbs did an amazing trunk show that all fit into one medium sized bag! She specializes in mini-quilts and usually takes a full sized pattern and then sizes it down. She brought many quilts, and I managed to capture pictures of most of them. Enjoy!
What an amazing trunk show! I think we all got some great inspiration for our mini-quilt swap next month!
We ended our meeting with Sew and Tell. As usual, you've all been very busy and finished many beautiful projects.
