Happy almost-spring! Charlotte graciously hosted the February guild meeting in Boca, and it sounds like it was a fabulous time! Here are some photos and a quick recap:
Charlotte discussed the ins-and-outs of entering quilt competitions. These are great opportunities to exhibit your beautiful quilts, enjoy some friendly competition and stretch your quilting skills. She also distributed two handouts, which we will send around with the upcoming newsletter.
The Bee blocks (shown on the left side of the photo below) turned out beautifully! Love the colors and random placements of the triangles.
The Block of the Month was the "Scrappy Trip Around the World." They look great all together!
The finished Riley Blake challenge items were displayed, and it was so much fun to see how everyone used the colors, patterns and designs. A great job for all the participants. If you are still working on your Riley Blake challenge, please bring it in when you've completed it!
Check out the incredible Round Robin quilts that will go to local girls and boys in need!
And to wrap it up, here are some beautiful show and tell photos (including button-shaped cookies...yum)!
We look forward to seeing everyone at the next meeting on Saturday, March 15th, from 10am to 12 noon at StitchCraft in Boca Raton!
