Wednesday Night Strippers Quilt Guild

Friendship and conversation
are what it's all about!
I love the name of our local guild:  The Wednesday Night Stripper Quilt Guild.  When we are out selling raffle tickets, we always get a second glance and usually a comment or two about what we "really do"  on Wednesday Nights  It makes for a great conversation starter and some good old belly laughs.

Our monthly meeting was held this past Wednesday, and I want to share photos from our "Show and Tell".  We have a wide range of quilt styles within our group, but the same passion for textile and a desire to give back to our community.

If you have ever considered joining a guild, do!  Find one close to you and plug in.  I always come away inspired  and with a deeper love for my passion of quilting.  It also gives you a ready made set of friends who will help you figure out a pattern when you are stuck. Life is more interesting when you are part of a community.

Cathy Bush made this beautiful Trade Winds quilt.  Don't you want to cuddle up under this for movie night?
Sally made this woven rug from fabric strips.  How cool is that?  Another good way to use up left over strips.  I think I may have to try this because the current rug in my laundry room needs to be retired!

Sally also made this colorful baby quilt.

And busy beaver that Sally was over the winter, she had sent this off to be quilted and was seeing it for the first time since being quilted by our resident long armer, Cathy Bush.  I regret not getting a close up of the quilting.  The pattern was a raindrop with a spiral in the center.  Beautiful work by both Sally and Cathy.

Bev completed this delightful baby quilt.  Some little boy is going to be very lucky to receive this!

Earleen brought in a completed UFO - her "Fractured Quilt" looks so cool, giving it sort of a Monet painting effect.

Betty also completed a UFO and brought in her paper pieced table runner.  We began a challenge this year to complete our UFO's.  Anyone wanting to participate puts a $1 in the jar and then anytime you bring in a completed UFO project your name gets added to the drawing for prizes at the end of the year.

Gail's completed UFO.  This wall hanging was also paper pieced.  Don't you just love the vibrant colors?

There were a few more Show and Tells, but I was unable to get a good picture of them.  Next time!  Thank you ladies for sharing.
