New Quilting Experience

After 15 years of participating in our local quilt guild, Grayson Country Quilters, I finally decided I better "pay back" for all the help I've gotten from these wonderful quilters. So this year 2011, I agreed to be the new president. My fellow officers are Sidney Christensen, Gail Glover, and Bobbie Holt. They are wonderful! and I so appreciate their good ideas and help.
Sidney constructed a guild blog the first month we were in, and it has been a huge help to everyone, plus a place to showcase our quilts.

At our first two meetings we had the ladies help tie baby quilts which we are giving to the local hospitals for new borns. We made about 24 quilts for this.

Our next service project was to put together a quilt to be used for cancer fund rising that the college rotaract club is doing. I found a beautiful pink quilt top on e-bay which the guild completed. Jeri did the machine quilting, and I did the binding.
