Another Underground Railroad Quilt Block

Our guild project continues with the next block  of our Underground Railroad Quilt presented here.

Mary demonstrates the Birds in the Air block.

 Because of transportation issues I arrived late at this week's guild meeting. Everyone who had something to share with the group had unfortunately already squirreled away their projects so I have no other pictures to share with viewers in this post. However, I along with other members played a rollicking game of bingo with lots of laughs. If you have never played this game with other quilters, let me explain how it's played. We each chose a game board made of 25 different squares of fabric. These fabrics consisted of different types of prints such as novelty, blue batik, pink flowers, yellow strips, etc. Stretching the colors and descriptions of these fabrics was the rule of the day. Different things were used by the ladies for markers: buttons, bead and wrapped candies. The guild president then proceeded to call out different fabric descriptions from a stack of game cards and the same rules for regular Bingo applied. For everyone who won the game received a fat quarter of her choosing. We had lots of belly laughs and went home refreshed, ready to go on to the next quilting project.

I'm sorry I've been a bit late with photos from our second meeting in January. All my fault. Part of it was that I just kept putting it off and before I knew it here it is February and tomorrow is our first meeting of the month. The other part is that I lost these photos somewhere in the dark recesses of my photo files. But, alas, they have been found and it's time to share with our readers.

Lovely fans!

In case you were wondering why I don't always name the quilters in the pictures, if I don't see a name tag I blank out. Aah, the joys of a brain with too much on it's hard drive. :))
