The Piecemakers Quilt Guild met in December at Community Hospital. Being a busy time of year we only had six members present.
We held the drawing for the Barn Quilt that was made by Sara Lester. Beth Bendig was the lucky winner–congratulations Beth.
Sara and Bev handed out our patterns for the Block of the Month Quilt we are each making. We received the patterns for December, January and February since we won’t have another meeting until March.
Garden Tea Party will be the theme for our May meeting when we host the Maryville and Sheridan clubs.
Sara won the fat quarters for this month.
We each brought homemade cookies and after “sampling,” we each took some to share with friends and neighbors.
We also had grab gift exchange.
Several of us met January 10, 2017 to choose patterns for items being made to put in gift bags for our guests in May. We all have something to keep us busy on those cold blustery days.
Our next meeting will be March 7, 2017, 5 p.m at Community Hospital. We invite you to join us for fun and new quilting ideas.
