for updates and pictures on guild happenings.


Lisa did a spectacular job with creating a challenge this year that not only gave us 16 entries, but brought quite a few guests to our meeting to see what was going on.

Friends of Lisa's from the Abilene Guild did a wonderful job judging this years challenge. It was not an easy task with all the twists and turns that our members presented in their take of the rail fence block. The comments that the judges wrote on the display cards for each quilted item were great. It is always helpful when you know that someone realized what you were striving for in color or placement and can also be a treat when your mistake becomes a positive take on your work. Haven't gotten a final count yet, but we did have to bring out more chairs to accommodate everyone.

Janice is one of our beginners, and was a little sad that she was not able to finish her project. She was kind enough to share her work and we are looking forward to seeing the finished rail fence.

Best of Show is already on display in Vevia's dining room. As you can see - Vevia was inspired by Brian Grove's technique plus a few more that she learned from tv programs - Eric Drexler's using a wood burning tool for cleaning up the edges of a tulle/thread art cut out wing. Halographic thread takes a few tries to get the hang of and Broderie Perse adds to the final effect.
