In 2019: You can check here for programs, birthdays, who's turn for refreshments and to set up for the night; but you will need to go to

for updates and pictures on guild happenings.


Okay - the heading is a little over board - however, it did catch your eye.

There were 5 of our guild members that went to Abilene's quilt guild meeting on Tuesday night to catch their program - "Buttons" by Linda Jones from Newton, KS. Wow! Gorgeous buttons! And very surprising to hear that some buttons can go for up to $4,000.00. Linda showed us her most expensive buy at $28.00 and I felt really bad. I have a fit if at an auction the whole button box goes for that much. Just goes to show you that I evidently do not have the "Button Disease" like Linda does.

Did you know that the state of the countries has a lot to do with what type of buttons AND quilts are produced? Whether it is the industrial revolution, American Civil War, World Wars or the great depression - they all play their part in having an influence on what is available on the market. BOO on the zipper. Buttons took a big hit when that item was invented.

The End of the Trail Quilters Guild gave us all a big welcome and what a privilege to see all their show and tell items. I was a good girl and kept my camera down for most of the showings, but I had to get this wedding dress conversion to a christening blanket. Lovely! And of course I also had to get a shot of their 2011 Opportunity Quilt. Egads!!!! What a pattern and can you imagine how much work went into this. If you want a chance at winning this quilt, see Barb at Material Girls - I am sure that she knows someone that has opportunities for it.

Thank you to the ladies that joined us on our adventure and may you keep your diseases down to just a few - "Quilting Disease", "Baking Disease", "Stash building disease"..........................................
