LARNED — The guild met on Tuesday, April 5 at the First Presbyterian Church fellowship hall.
President Diann Morell read thank you notes for prayer quilts from Gary Caplinger and Aaron Beckwith. To date around 500 prayer quilts have been made in the last six years.
A report from the fundraiser committee was reviewed by members and this year’s activity will be a silent auction of items made by members for the Quilting Celebration on June 4. The public is invited to this free day-long event.
Internet sites were reviewed and those interested can find our guild on Facebook.
A new quilt shop has been opened in Salina “Uniquely Yours, Sewing and Quilting.”
Young Sarah Manry won the 20 friendship quilt blocks made by members of the guild.
Ann Hicks demonstrated the next friendship quilt block and distributed the first steps toward the block.
Additionally, a fat quarter was drawn by each member to be completed within a project of their choosing and due by the first meeting in July.
The popular show and tell participants were Mary Weber, never-used tea towels that were a wedding present and an old Flower Garden quilt that was her grandmothers; Rita Schaller, purse finished from a UFO from a previous meeting using play money/auction; Melvina Prescott, baby blanket and burp cloths; Karen Hadley, table runner-top from Valentine scraps won when the guild played Quilt Bingo; and Ann Hicks, prayer quilt top.
The next regular meeting is scheduled at 7 p.m. April 19. Those interested in the committee are invited. For information, callg the church. 620-285-6033.
