Quilt Guild Meeting

My little quilt guild had it's monthly meeting this afternoon.  We moved it up a couple of hours so that it would be daytime, and also moved it to the parking lot so that we'd be 'socially distanced'.  We had 8 of our ladies in attendance (we only have 17 members).
more than 6 feet apart
 We can't really have a program when we are outside, but we chatted and had show-n-tell.  It was windy, so my photos aren't that great, sorry.

Jeanette made a bag between all the face masks she's been making.

Marilyn showed off her 'All About Me' quilt.  Marilyn loves tea.

Marilyn also made a block for a mini quilt for another group.  I love her sewing machine block.

Jo held up my quilts since I was taking the photos.  I had several baby quilts to show off (some finished, some still works in progress).

I also brought the 2nd toilet paper quilt.  This one is for me, but I still need to quilt it.

I brought my 'All About Me' quilt. (better photo here).  They showed it sideways so that it wouldn't drag along the ground.

Marlene also showed her 'All About Me' quilt.  Her hubby helped with this quilt by doing all the embroidery blocks.  I have several up close photos showing some of  embroidery blocks of things that mean something to her.

Jo had to quilt tops to show.  The first one is salt water taffy.

Kandy showed off a quilt she made using another member's aunt's Dresden Plate blocks.

Kandy also showed off her 'All About Me' quilt.  It has dancing, painting, knitting, sewing, gardening and motorcycles in the quilt.

Kandy also made a poinsettia quilt and some cute chicken hot pads.

Hopefully soon the guild will be able to have our meetings indoors again.
