Our Final Meeting of The Newby Quilting Bee Group

Sadly, all good things come to an end.  We had our last meeting for this year of the Newby Quilting Bee Group.  Diplomas were handed out, we enjoy a lovely pot luck brunch.  From left to right, Brenda, Sandy, Shirley, Teri, Ramona and Brandy. 

 Brenda brought down her lovely glass plates and some cloth napkins for us to dine in style!
 Each of the gals was given a little pin cushion and a kit to make a pumpkin like the ones below.  Everything in it but the batting!
 Teri, Brenda and Ramona have finished their quilts, they are just absolutely lovely!  I'm very proud of their accomplishments.  Valerie and Janeal were unable to attend, they have finished up their quilts and will have them for display at our Harvest Festival this Saturday.  Sandy and Brandy are finishing up their quilts, which will be stunning with the beautiful fabrics and colors they have selected.  Shirley has a beautiful quilt that she is having quilted, we are keeping our fingers crossed that it will be finished in time.  

Brandy with her beautiful quilt!

Shirley with her cute Pony Quilt!

Everyone of the gals in the class this year made such amazing progress.  I am so very proud of each and every one of them.  This was a big undertaking for first time quilters.  I so enjoyed the company of the gals and getting to know each of them.  The basic skills are there now and the sky is the limit!

We are looking forward to January when we will pick up the class again.  Our first class next year will be a simple paper piecing project for you to enjoy!

Fall Harvest Festival is this coming Saturday, October 27th from 5pm until 8pm at the LDS Church on Todd Valley Road.  There will be Games and Activities for the children from 5pm until 6pm.  Dinner will be served from 6pm until 7pm.  Trunk-or-Treat will be from 7pm until 8pm.  Trunk-or-Treat will be held in the lower parking lot this year to keep the upper lot clear for people to park without worrying about children darting around in the dark.  Costumes may be worn but we would request that no masks be worn for safety of the little ones.  Face paint is okay.  Our quilts will be on display in the Relief Society Room.  We hope that you can come out with your family and enjoy the evening with us!
