The Corn Wagon Quilt Shop was our featured quilt show this month. Marsha and Marianne told us all about all the fun classes and product they have and brought some great door prizes!
This month we gained 4 new members, Wendy Cordon on the left and Gayle Ware on the right., also Gwendolyn Shoop and Yvonne Matheson, not pictured. Welcome ladies we're glad to have you join the ranks!
Helen Butler introduced our challenge for the year, Scrappy Trip Quilt. If you goggle it you will see the pattern. Everyone is encouraged to join in and have your quilt ready for display at our November meeting.
The gals from the Nebo Modern Quilt guild were our guests for the program. Pictured here are left tot right Kira Carter, Marion McClellan and Laura Nance. They brought a huge assortment of wonderful quilts for us all to enjoy. These girls were lots of fun to listen too and their quilts were amazing. We all left feeling so inspired to try a modern design for a quilt of our own.
