Hello, welcome to my blog. I'm still not sure what I will be featuring in this blog. I know it will be about quilting, but I might throw in the latest book I'm reading on my Kindle. So come along a follow me through my world of quilting and other stuff.

Quilt Day At The Guild

Today was my guild meeting at UHURU Quilters Guild and what fun we had with challenges, show-n-tell, and our raffle quilt.


This is a picture of our raffle quilt called “Black-eyed Susan in the Maryland Sunshine”.  When finished it will be 100”x100” and proceeds will benefit Community service and youth projects.  the drawing will be December 21, 2013.  So if you would like a ticket let me know. 


Here is a closer look at the block, it is paper pieced.




Also, we had people show off their challenge for the month.  Doing some kind of technique they have never tried before or had wanted to try.


There is a Baltimore Album block, paper piece block and revers applique.   I missed a couple of peoples block so busy noising around, and I cannot show you my challenge just yet anyway.


Karen Clark is showing off a most beautiful Cancer quilt and she is a SURVIER.




And this lovely black/white Baltimore Album quilt was made by Jackie Castellanos, she is the one holding the BA up top.

There were other quilts that I just did not get pictures of, but you get the idea of what I members can do.


And Linda of (Eat, Sleep, Quilt) was doing her thing with a class on her Crumble quilt.

All in all it was a full day of beautiful quilts, lovely ladies and also food.

Happy Quilters Day to All.
