June Pot Luck and Wrap-Up Meeting

We welcomed our members, some former members and also a new member, a great ending to our year!

First we enjoyed the potluck, then a bit of business and a spirited Minute-To-Win-It game organized by our incoming president, Melanie. We do have a competitive group!


 In our Fat Quarter Draw they added a few prizes for those who have never been drawn before. One member had their ticket drawn three times in a row and then was the lucky person drawn for never having had their name drawn before that night!

Two of our completed hospice quilts were displayed with a special thank you to the two groups
who donated time to hand quilt the hospice quilts. They had been invited to share our meal.  

 Scotch Settlement Union Church Quilters and their quilting.


The Manners Sutton Sewing Circle Quilters quilted the Emma Grace quilt.
We ended the evening with Show & Tell
Pats "Dear Jane" begun three years ago....a lot of work and amazing.

Kathy finished her "Oh Canada" quilt from the Gail Mitchell workshop

Ella started this at retreat

Our newest member Andrea showed us her machine quilted T-Shirt quilt
Melanie completed a book cover, and quilted magnets but I was unable to get a good photo
