Round Robin Unveiling

We had our round robin and "stash busters" unveiling last night at our guild meeting. We used the 3M sticky hooks and large binder clips to hang the quilts up. It brought us back to the early days when we had quilts displayed all over the room. After numerous contraptions this was relatively easy. All we have to do is remove the hook part at the end of the meeting. If the room manager ever gets tired of the brackets on the wall, they can be removed easily too. Hopefully, he won't though.

In the first view (top picture - from left) you can see Elyn's red and white stash quilt, then my round robin, then Joan's, then Melissa's.

From left, Penny's RR, then Shel's, then one of Shel's stash quilts.

It was a well-received presentation and Shel did a wonderful job pulling it all together. Now we're on to our next challenge to make a quilt using the fabrics we purchased at the party to end our stash diet. Those are due in February. Mine, a Turning 20 quilt using Kaffe Fasset fabrics, is ready to be quilted so I am ahead of the game for once.

The other fabulous news: Lura Schwarz-Smith is coming to Maui for a 3-day workshop at the end of May. Whoo-hoo! The guild also voted on approving contracts for Bonnie McCaffrey in April and another quilter in July. Looks like a fun year coming up!

Hmmm, I love the timing of all this! We rant and rave for years, and finally when I'm well on my way to doing my own thing, they finally get it together and start bringing in quality instructors! Go figure. Love the quilt hook idea. It's so easy! Thanks for sharing. Sorry I couldn't make it.
