It may have been a grey, dreary cold day in Duluth but members of the Lake Superior Modern Quilt Guild grabbed their brightest quilts, bundled up, and gathered for a walkabout around Duluth's iconic Aerial Lift Bridge!
Check out the Duluth News Tribune article on the colorful walkabout:
Duluth quilters strut stuff in Canal Park
A guild highlight for this past Fall was a class with Jamie Swanson where we made her Luminary Quilt pattern. It was a day of sewing, chopping up what we had just sewn and putting it back together again to create an explosion of color! Be sure to check on #luminaryquilt on Instagram to see more of these beautiful quilts!
Thank you , Jamie, for a great day sewing your beautiful design. And thank you to the participants for letting me use your photos!
Happy Holidays to all!
We had a wonderful Holiday Party on Thursday, December 14th at Harrison Community Center.
The meeting started with a scrumptious dinner with lasagna entrees graciously provided by Denise and Rosemary . A full complement of hors d’oeuvres, salads, breads and desserts rounded out our menu. Thanks to all who brought something to share!
After dinner we had a Saran Wrap Ball Christmas Game that challenged our speed, dexterity and ability to roll doubles. Thank you Claudia for wrapping up all the goodies and making our evening fun! Thank you Robin for contributing the dice for our game!
We did have a bit of business to conduct. A reminder was made regarding 2018 membership renewals. If you haven’t yet renewed your membership you can do so via this link (scroll to bottom of page): http://www.lakesuperiormqg.com/membership.html
It was announced that a second email would be sent providing the link to the 2017 membership survey. Also, the link would be posted on the Member’s Only Facebook page.
Cheryl announced a quilt raffle is being held by Karen McTavish’s Quilt Studio to benefit to First Witness Child Advocacy Center. The quilt being raffled is Scott’s ‘Rey and BB-8’ quilt which was quilted by Frank Palmer. Tickets can be purchased at McTavish Quilting Studio. More information can be found here:
Then our elves passed out the Fabric Challenge Swap presents for opening. I think everyone must have been very, very good this year because their ‘Santa’ made them some great ‘little gifts’! The link to see all the handmade goodness is below. Thank you Sue for organizing the swap.
And of course there was Show and Tell to put the ‘stars’ right on top!
To recap the night, I want to give a big thanks to:
Merry Christmas to all and may your holiday be warm and cozy like the quilts you make!
See you Thursday, January 11th at Karen McTavish’s Quilt Studio!
