May 2010 Q2 Guild Meeting

Busy meeting last night - many items to be taken care of and a really fun program given by Shirley Rajewski of The Stitching Well in Bay City.
Showing odds and ends of photos in no particular order. Shirley brought lovely examples of crazy quilting and our members also brought along items they had that were crazy quilts or embellished pieces. A great display!

Shirley had also brought along books, threads, embellishments, and lots of other goodies that we all love so very much.

Aren't these all lovely? Lots of talent in Q2.

Before the program was given, Julie Oman gave a report on our very successful quilt show held the end of April and first two days of May. We had the largest turnout ever and had a very successful bazaar and blind auction. She recognized the members who gave so freely of their time and talents to make the show such a success and also passed out the Viewers' Choice awards. The complete list will be in the Midland paper soon. I am not going to try and list everyone as I know I would not get it right. Needless to say, we had our usual beautiful quilts displayed for everyone to enjoy.
Nancy Stanley conducted the door prize and fat quarter giveaway. We voted on officers for next year - and again I will not try to list them but feel that you all will be notified of the people heading up our group next year.
Looking over the examples of embellished and crazy quilts.

A beauty!

This quilt is appraised at $4000 - just exquisite.
