QUILT GUILD TUESDAY

Yesterday was Quilt Guild Day.  I belong to two guilds; one meets in the morning and the other meets in the evening.  The morning guild has about 45 members and the evening one only has 7 members.  I enjoy them both. 

In the morning guild I was responsible this month for choosing and demo-ing the block of the month.  I chose this one for everyone to make this next month and bring back to the September meeting, using fall fabrics.  It's a 10" finished block.  Someone will win all the blocks to put together a nice fall quilt. 


Following the meeting, Sherri M gave the program on getting organized and we made this handy, dandy project bag.  Super simple and easy and it even has a zipper in it.  Why did I pay money for these in the past?  And what great gifts.  I made mine in less than 30 minutes and am thinking the next one will go even faster.  I'll post a tutorial on how to make these but it will be a couple of weeks.  Next week I'm off to Missouri to see my girls before they leave for Japan. 


It was my turn at the evening guild - Razzle Dazzle Quilters - to present the program.  I showed them how to make the self binding baby quilt (receiving blanket).  Here is the youtube video on how to do it if you want to give it a try.  Once again, super fast and easy.
