This Week At The Guild

There is much to show you this week. This year we are featuring a different member of the guild at each meeting. It's a chance to share with members the other interests each member has. A great way to get to know each other better.

The writer of this blog was the last meeting's featured member. Besides quilting, (hand applique being a favorite technique) I spin, weave, make art, create embellished fabric pins, collect sheep-stuffed and figurines and create crafting patterns, etc.
Roxanne's many crafts.

Each featured member selects a block pattern that represents her for the other members to make. Then the featured member signs and dates everyone's block. When all the blocks are finished then we will each have enough blocks to make a quilt filled with memories of our quilting sisters. The block I chose is called Rolling Stone. I chose this because of a nickname I had in junior high school...enough said.
And this week for show and tell:
Sandy's wall hanging.
