Do you know what an "Ironing Woman" is?? It's a BLAST!! Last year our wonderfully creative program gals at the Northern Lights Quilting Guild came up with this fun program. Now, I'm not sure if they created it, or just brought it into our lives, but I have got to tell you it's one of the funnest programs we do at the guild. Here's the info that went to the guild members before the event (and it was an EVENT, not a meeting!):
Here's pictures of the in-process....
After about 45 minutes you are supposed to have a somewhat finished wall hanging. We stretch it longer, rushing through the business end of the meeting and back to
Here's what a few of the end results were:
look at the sunset on this one.....
See how much fun we had???
Last year the completed wall hangings were auctioned off at our bi-annual quilt show. They were quite successful. Since this is the second year for our Ironing Woman, Michelle and Judi mixed it up a little by allowing each group some time, and then they grabbed the creation off of a table and swapped it with other creations on different tables. So we had to pick up where the other team left off!!
You can't begin to imagine how much fun this really is!! It's a great time for everyone! You are not allowed to pick your own team members, so it's a fabulous way to get to know other members in the guild. Here's our Michelle and Judi, we sure do love 'em!!
Okay, a quick reminder about the half price quilting giveaway, and I'm off to do some quilts. Got a box in the mail today from Nancy in PA. Haven't seen anything from her for a while but I'm looking forward to seeing what she has sent to me.
Have a fabulous weekend, thanks for checking on me,
love to hear what you've got to say......
