Davidene had a display  table of fun classes coming at the guilds annual retreat.

                       We've gained a new member, Pam Taylor from Orem, Welcome Pam !

Bonnie and Debbie showed off this months scrap quilts and handed out the instructions. Aren't these stunning!

Kaye Evans, on the right in this picture, brought many of her beautiful quilts and taught us her methods of picking the right color combinations. Her quilts were so beautiful it's evident she really knows what she's talking about.

Cindy Huchinson , pictured below, brought several floor quilts for us to see. Cindy explained that she starts with floor linoleum which she primes and paints on the wrong side. She then adds the fabric motifs she has fussy cut from yardage and mod podges it to the painted side. It is then sealed with several layers of sealant. She showed several varieties featuring holiday and seasonal themes as well everyday styles. Cindy uses them all over her house as well as on her porch. Bonnie has planned to have Cindy teach a class next month and over 30 members signed up.
