We met on a wondermous afternoon at Walrond Park for a program on “Scrappy” quilts. After a short business meeting, the floor (well, the picnic arbor floor) was given to Program Chair Kathy Wickham where she spoke about scrappy quilts and showed several samples of just what scrappy can be.
After showing these great samples of how we might choose to use some of our scraps to make a quilt, it was time to open the floor to Show and Tell.
In order of appearance – Betty Fralin, Carpenter Star; Carolyn Zaleski, Comfort Quilt, flag quilt from donated center; David Yeatts, Disappearing 4-patch, he also showed his mom’s Oopsy Daisy; Donna Bohon, Scrappy denim, Scrappy blocks; Gisela O’Connor, Scrappy denim, bordered scrappy, Sampler Quilt, Table Runner; Janice Taylor, bag with embroidered name and embroidered dominoes; Kitty Yates, Scrappy Scramble back, Scrappy Scramble, Candle Mat, Scrappy Aprons, Scrappy On-Point, Scrappy Pineapple back, Scrappy Pineapple front, Scrappy Stars, Scrappy Table Runner; Laura Perry – Just Get It Done, Just Get It Done back; Loretta Twiford, BRQG scrappy project.
There was a table just filled up with Ways & Means “stuff” like fabrics which might be used to create a Scrappy project, light refreshments including cookies and all manner of yummy nibbles, and the other tables were pretty well populated with members and guests.
The September meeting will be held at the home of a member but will also be available to members via Zoom. The program will be a demonstration of the AccuQuilt Cutting System. If you are a member, you should have received an email on Sunday from President Carol Dillon with the Zoom instructions. I know I am looking forward to the program.
