NLQG Meeting

Being a member of the North Louisiana Quilt Guild is not only educational and inspirational, it is entertaining and just plain fun. Click here on NLQG, browse around and sign the guest book.

Thanks to all who continue to add quilt blocks to the Marine Comfort Quilts. Our guild has made and mailed over 200 quilt blocks to this organization. Our guild donation quilt was unfolded today. Hats off to the committee of three who spent hundreds of hours piecing and quilting. It is exquisite. "Daisy's In The Cabin" was a selection from Pam Bono Designs. When they are this beautiful, it's really easy to sell all those raffle tickets. Well, yes, the guild has to make money to afford our bi-annual quilt show!

In addition to viewing the fab donation quilt, Kay Thode shared with us a quilt she found in Massachusetts and purchased for a meager $10. Kay did her homework and found that it is a circa 1820's and the pattern is "Mrs. Harris's Colonial Rose." Even though it is somewhat worn, it is a real treasure.

And, Lisa Smith had a wonderful holiday quilt she finished with the help of her great quilter friend, Susanne Walker. Fun, fun show-and-tell.

We are also really excited to announce that renown teacher and quilter, Margaret J. Miller of MILLER QUILTS will be in Monroe June 5 and 6, 2009, for her "Smashing Sets" workshop. Anticipation is growing as the sun continues to shine on our guild.

Let us all hope that I learn how to link directly to web pages in the very near future. In the meantime, you may laugh AT me or WITH me. Your choice. I'm doing neither at this moment.
