March meeting links

For our meeting on March 9th, we used the following references. The theme is "SEW Scrappy".

Foundation piecing for strings.

Clever method for doing large areas of small squares.

Pat Sloan's scrap busting method for cutting and storing scraps.

Lori Holt's shortcut for making 4 patches.

Easy & Scrappy log cabin blocks.

Mini charm quilt

A good source for scrappy projects of all kinds - not just quilts - is Sew Can She. We really liked the mini quilt block magnets, for the smallest pieces.

Woven Block tutorial for comfort quilts

As Paula mentioned, she is gathering woven blocks for our current cause.

The link to the tutorial is HERE.

Just follow the woven block steps. The snowball one at the bottom we are not using.

Charity works

One of the things our guild does is make items for various charities around the greater Fredericton area.

Joanne and Paula recently delivered laptop quilts for wheelchairs to Stan Kassidy hospital that were made by the members of Keswick Ridge Quilters. They were MUCH appreciated.

December dinner

Our December meeting on the 9th was held at the Keswick Ridge Hall where enjoyed a catered buffet style dinner, provided by Leanne and Chef Rick from North Meets South Catering Group. 

Our dinner menu had a choice of meats: Green Curry Chicken or Maple Glazed Salmon Green Curry Chicken is not spicy. There was a curry sauce served on the side so we could individually spice it up a bit if we wish.

 Ingredients: chicken; peppers; baby corns: bamboo shoots; eggplant; lemongrass; galangla (which is in the ginger family and slightly sweet); kaffir lime leaves (which add a lemony taste); palm sugar (actual sugar from a coconut - milder sugar than our white sugar); cilantro roots; garlic; coconut milk.

 The rest of the menu:
 Sweet Jasmine Rice and/or Roasted Potatoes
Vegetable Medley
 Chocolate Brownie with Homemade Caramel Sauce and Real Whipped Cream Coffee and Tea with Milk, Cream and Sugar

 Note: All parts of the meal are made in their kitchen from fresh, local ingredients.

 We also had a great ticket auction.

Then we wrapped it up with Show and Tell.

And our mood board for the meeting:
