Cowlumbia Challenge

The June picnic was also the deadline for our Cowlumbia Challenge. The idea was to make a
24" x 36" wall quilt that was a visual twist on the words "cow" and Columbia." It looks like it was a great success to me. Thanks to Zohra for taking these pictures in my absence.

June General Meeting

In June we traditionally have our summer picnic. Once again this year we were lucky enough to meet at the clubhouse at Yacht Cove, which is a beautiful place to enjoy the lake and relax (thanks again Janet).

We enjoyed our usual show and tell, starting with these three from Bev. The first is an english paper pieced hexagon quilt made all from rose fabrics. The second was made with plaids from her stash as well as shirts from the thrift store and is for her grandson. I'm sure he's going to love it.

These two beauties are from Bonney.

Linda has been busy with these three.

Sue always seems to bring in at least three every month. How does she do it?

Lynne has finished another one of her paper pieced quilts. It's just SUPER!!

And finally Joan showed off this very modern looking lap quilt. Love, love, love it! Nice job Joan.

Great Day Bee Gathering

    We had a great crowd at Dorothy's home for Day Bee.  I took a few photos of show and tell.  Bev has been working on her all rose hexagon quilt.  She was sewing on binding by hand.

Sue found a cute panel and made an adorable child's quilt.  She also was sewing on binding by hand.

Jean has discovered an new template and shared this quilt top. The 3 units form a large equilateral triangle and 6 form a large hexagon.  Interesting pattern.

Think about coming to the next Day Bee.  Enjoy the fellowship and get to know guild members better.
