May Meeting Highlights

Our gorgeous May BOM blocks!

We had our most amazing turnout to date for the May meeting,  yay us! Accompanied by the largest participation in the BOM program as you can tell from the picture above. Lucky Sara was the winner of these gorgeous blocks. (Well most of them, the seconds when made were added to our growing charity pile).

And more exciting news, we  also had our youngest member join us! A big welcome to Aiden Paetzold. Yup, Jen’s and KC’s son, and Bonnie’s grandson and we are so thrilled to have this family as part of our guild  (which is 27 members strong to date).

In addition to the BOM, 12 members swapped some amazing pocket quilts. We may be a small guild,  but we are packed with talent! Check out these little ones!
