An Active Guild!

I belong to an active quilt guild.  Each year we do a quilt for a Habitat for Humanity family, a quilt for a family surviving domestic violence and a Quilt of Honor for a United States Veteran.

Last weekend, I finished sewing the top for our Quilt of Honor.  Several guild members worked on the blocks and I finished the last row of chevrons and added the inner and outer borders.  A long arm quilter from the guild will do the quilting.

This is one of my favorite blocks.  I like the plaid and polka dot combo.

Here is another favorite block.  Also, you can see the navy outer border fabric that highlights the entire quilt.

Our guild goes 0n a shopping road trip each year and we have fun picking out the fabrics for our charity quilts.  Most of the time, guild members donate fabrics for the quilt blocks and then we go shopping for the border and binding fabrics to bring everything together in a cohesive quilt.

I have learned so much from my fellow guild members!  Each member has different quilting talents and they inspire me to expand my quilting horizons.  I’m always challenged with new techniques, color placements, fabric choices and patterns.

Do you belong to a quilting guild or group?  Tell us about it!

    Very cool Quilt of Honor! In Central Oregon we have Quilts of Valor and my friend Betty Anne has done one and Terry the Quilting Husband want to also do one someday. I am sort of in a guild and I go occasionally but I am not very active in it at this time.
