May 2023 Meeting

Spring is here, flowers are blooming, the days are longer and the colors are brilliant.  After a brief business meeting, community service projects were shared - pillowcases for youth, quilts, bags and Christmas stockings for homeless and dog beds for shelters.  Then the guild was updated on preparations for our Quilt Show  - October 20-22, 2023, more details to come!

Below are examples of show and tell projects this month.

Our speaker for the evening was Joanna Ellis, member of the Westside Art Quilt Guild.  Joanna shared with us her wonderful art quilts where she employs a variety of techniques that she has learned along her journey.
