Closing Social 2012

We love this day...We hate this day!

We love gathering for our Needles and Friends Quilt Guild closing social. But we hate saying goodbye for the summer.

 The committee had the room all adorned in spring-ness!

Our president Cheryl had thank you gifts prepared for her board. But the biggest thank you goes to Cheryl for her "over the top" job as 2012 guild president. I don't know if you noticed, but she signed up and participated in nearly everything this year. That's just the kind of fabulosity she is!


The pot-luck brunch is always delicious, as quilters piece together yummy food as well as quilts.

THE QUILT SHOW


















Cheryl's thank you quilt...yea for a wonderful year!

So keep those sewing machines humming
and the Diet Cokes coming.

As we will certainly see you all
with quilts to share next Fall!

 
Happy Summer Needles and Friends!

April Guild 2012

It takes a lot of courage to sign up for Friendship blocks...knowing you could be committing to 10 blocks or a whopping 64! This year the number was very reasonable...with 25 being the magic number.

Block were due today and here is the group that played along...minus a couple and the photographer.

Sorting is the worst favorite job there is!
Wool projects are turning out fabulous...kudos to Leisa Firth for inspiring us each month with beautiful designs!

Meeting a new member

and oohing and aahing over her quilts!

The mystery quilt over-achievers brought their finished quilt tops. These are amazing ladies! Great job, and congratulations on keeping up. Ask me if I have even started...nope!
Leslie's newest version of the quilt. Thank you Leslie...we have loved your darling presentation each and every month.
Jill has another quilt story for us...this time about sharing your quilts.
I just wish Jill would share those pink shoes...yummy! They kind of remind me of sherbet!

Now I know we all thought those ladies who played in the Challenge this year...were crazy. But who is crazy now...look at these adorable quilts these ladies are taking home. You snooze you lose girls!




 SHOW AND SHARE












See you all on May 8th for our closing social.
