October 2011 Meeting

Last night was our October meeting. Because many of our members were attending a retreat, we decided to do something different. A wonderful lady, Pat Moseman, is responsible for a program called "Home of the Brave". They give a quilt to each family of a fallen Utah soldier. Pat came to our guild with cut out blocks and even some sewn blocks and we did what we could to help get a few quilts together. We brought sewing machines and other supplies and went to work. We started at around 5:00 p.m. and worked until nearly 9:00 p.m. Here are some pictures of us hard at work.

You will notice that we also had some very young helpers. Kari brought her lovely daughters, Emma and Isabelle. They very kindly helped cut threads and press. We were provided with some yummy pizza, complements of the guild, and some wonderful cookies, complements of our president, Tina. 
Now to the fruits of our labors. The first photo is Tina, modeling a completed row of blocks. Then on to some more serious pictures of completed blocks and finally a completed top and the proud seamstress, Gina, and fearless leader of the program, Pat Moseman.

 Thank you so much ladies for all your hard work!!! Hopefully we will have some pictures and a full report of activities at the retreat!
