We are having our meeting tonight!  We will talk about many things - including the quilts we've made for the Cancer Center as well as opportunities to help hurricane Sandy victims.  I hope you can make it!  And please, if you're a member of our guild, find our interactive facebook group (we have a page too) and request to join!  It's a great way to share information and ideas quickly and easily throughout the month.

October Meeting

Our meeting is this week! We are so lucky that Cristy is located near enough to us and she was willing to come speak!  I have already used her board method to baste a quilt since the last meeting.  I'm so excited to be up off of the floor.  She is also generously offering our guild 15% off.  Simply use the code INSPIRING on her website If you don't have the glue tips yet, I highly recommend those.  🙂 See you Thursday!

Charity Quilts

One goal we have is to become more involved in the Tucson community as a guild. We decided that to be most effective we should choose one organization each year. This year we have voted to donate quilts to the Cancer Center. These lap quilts will be used by patients during chemo treatments and will stay at the center.

Here is one charity quilt in progress. It will have 3 more blocks added to it to make a nice lap sized quilt.

Each month Kristi, one of our amazing members, has been sharing a block with us. She presents a traditional block and then gives it a modern spin! It has been wonderful! (We will get a page up with the PDF's of each block.) Guild members then make one (or more) of these blocks so that they can learn new techniques and play with design. Then we bring the blocks together to make one of these lap quilts for the cancer center. We also have members donating their time and services to back, quilt and bind these for the Caner Center. I'm so proud to be part of this group!
