Merry Christmas everyone!

Merry Christmas! Wishing everyone a blessed Christmas, a day filled with the joy of the season, peace and joy. May we all enjoy good health and happiness in the coming year, and the continued fellowship of wonderful friends in our Guild. I hope everyone got something "quilty" in your stockings this morning!!

I am so grateful for the many wonderful friends I have in FQG, and I'm sure you all feel the same. We are indeed blessed!

Merry Christmas!

Thank You Ladies!

A huge thank you to all who turned in placemats for Meals on Wheels. These will be given out with the Christmas dinners to Meals on Wheels clients. Your response was wonderful- we received 98 placemats!! Thank you for your kindness in taking the time to create something beautiful for others. I know there are many who will get "a lift" from this unexpected small gift with their meal on Christmas Day!

They are lovely - every one!! Thank you so much!!

2013 Christmas Social

Although I was unable to attend the Christmas Social, I have heard that it was a most enjoyable evening. The speakers were very interesting and the musical entertainment, our local Lady Barbershoppers Quartet, the Meadowlarks, got everyone in the Christmas spirit with their music. And of course, the evening included the "big reveal" of this fall's Mystery Quilt- a Christmas tablecloth. Here are a few photos, courtesy of Carol Boyle.

November meeting and Reminders

Another awesome meeting under our belts! Lois Wilby-Hooper shared many of her wonderful quilts with us. Lois has "been at it" a long time and it was so interesting to see how her work has evolved and changed. She has moved from traditional quilts to art quilts, experimenting with many "unconventional" fabrics and materials. Thanks Lois for sharing your wonderful works of art with us!! Shown below are some of the many pieces Lois shared with us.
We also saw an amazing Show and Tell at our Nov. meeting. Those photos have now been added to our Show and Tell Gallery on the sidebar at right. Check them out there!
The "J team" is still accepting Christmas placemats for Meals on Wheels. They can be turned in at the Christmas Social on Tuesday Dec. 3. If you cannot attend, send them along with another member, or they can be dropped off to Jeanne Kaye S. or Joan C.
I hope there will be a great turnout to our Christmas Social on Tuesday Dec. 3 at the Stepping Stones Center, 15 Saunders St., Fredericton South. Start time is 6:30pm.  I cannot be there because of another commitment so I'll take this opportunity to wish you all an early Merry Christmas. I do hope you'll find a little quiet time in this hectic holiday season to enjoy some time at your sewing machine!
