YES! 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. See you tonight!

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!

Amazing Quilt from Carla!
Happy July everyone!!! The great thing about summer in Tucson is that you can stay inside and quilt all day long. 😉 We have our meeting this week so we can see what you've been working on! July 12th at 6:30pm at the Quilt Basket. (6538 E. Tanque Verde #130) See you then. 😀
Would you believe it's already time for our June meeting? We had such a great time in our new home, The Quilt Basket
and will be there again this month! Don't forget to bring any fabric you're wanting to get out of your stash. We will use these for making the charity quilts - including the backing and maybe even some of the blocks.
Thursday, June 14th 6:30pm @ The Quilt Basket
(6538 E. Tanque Verde #130)
As always we look forward to seeing you and what you've been working on - completed or not!

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!
Hi everyone! We have our new website up! 😀 There is still work to be done but we're so happy to have it here.
Don't forget the April meeting will be April 12th at 6:30pm. Our host store is Bella Quilt Works! Hope to see you all then!
