Oneida Quilt Guild Report

The Oneida Quilt Guild met November 10. The meeting started with a review of the revised bylaws. The food bank has need of food this year, so instead of toys we will be donating to help with this. After guild business it was time for show and tell. The members of the guild have been busy. Sharon Harris showed two fleece baby quilts, one for a boy and one for a girl, which she made for a neighbor who is having twins. Debra Clark had made a lovely blue and yellow reversible quilt. Audrey Jaussi brought the finished Friendship Quilt. This is a quilt that is made up of block sewn by different members of the guild who purchase a piece of fabric for the block. It will be given to one of these members in a drawing next month. She also showed a patchwork quilt she had made. Debbie Schoolcraft showed three different tree skirts that she embordered, a cute purple 3 yard quilt and a beautiful embroidered animal quilt. She also let us know that the Utah State Quilt Fair will be held October 10, 2023. Mary Ellen showed two pillows and a table runner she had completed from block that she had made in the past. Bonnie Howard showed a nice cream and maroon jelly roll quilt. Christine Davis brought three Christmas table runners that she had made she donated. Barbara also donated a pretty square patchwork quilt. Judy Jones had a made a cute pink around the world strip baby quilt. Brenda Daniels showed two baby quilts and her quirky quilt. Stephanie showed off her awesome Eiffel tower quilt. Ruth showed a tree skirt and some Christmas stockings. She also brought some taffeta and satin for anyone who would be interested in having it.

Following Show and Tell Ester Emerson give us a demonstration on using creative grid iron on interfacing. You use a washable glue stick, then iron the squares on after that you just fold and sew.

We finished the day with a wonderful luncheon. 

Next month’s meeting will be December 8th at 9:30. We will be having a Christmas party. Bring 4 fat Quarters or 1 yd of fabric to be exchanged as a gift.
