The Piecemakers quilting club met Wednesday, June 18. Summer is in full swing and numbers were a little sparse, but the enthusiasm and camaraderie of the quilters was in abundance. Linda LaDoux welcomed members, new members, and guests. Pamela Davis gave the treasurer’s report; Victoria Banks conducted the business meeting. Linda LaDoux presented the Block of the Month. Participants who had completed the May block showed off their blocks and the winner of the prize drawing was Gracie Campbell.
Pam Davis talked about “The Great Arkansas Quilt Show 3” at the Historic Arkansas Museum opening Aug. 7, 2014, and going to May 3, 2015. All quilts are made by Arkansas quilters; and Pam has a quilt entered. There will be lectures and workshops from August to February. For more information go to www.HistoricArkansas.org.
July Sit and Sew will be a clothesline wrapped project taught by Susan Moore. The program in August will be presented by Carol Robertson on how to dye fabrics.
This month for Sew and Tell we saw: a flowers and bird quilt; some table runners; a purse; a weekender bag; a fabric bowl (clothesline wrapped project); a small duffel bag; bear baby quilt; a silly goose quilt in fall colors.
Victoria collected the star blocks for our “Quilts of Valor” project. From May and June, there were a total of 48 blocks were turned in. We worked on piecing together one of the “Quilts of Valor” for our Sit and Sew.
Piecemakers next meeting will be 10 a.m. July 16, 2014, at the Methodist Church in Clinton. Anyone one interested in quilts or quilting is welcome. ~ Brenda Dunlap
