Quilting Bee

nElizabeth McDonnell

to have it completed before the wedding. Barbara also showed a few of the doll quilts she has been making. Karen Kristensen is working on a “Block of the Month” project in which one block has 91 pieces! The Quilting Bee meets on the second Wednesday of each month to sew and quilt on our own projects and the fourth Wednesday of each month for our business meeting. We meet in the Arts and Crafts room from 1–4 p.m. both days. For further information please call me at 538-2523.

At our first meeting of the month, Morgan Hewitt showed a beautiful scrap quilt she has made which is a wedding gift for her son and soon-to-be daughterin-law. She did a wonderful job and is enthused about next making a quilt for her granddaughter. At that same meeting, Marianne Johnstone was busy marking her first quilt in preparation for machine quilting. It has since been finished, after marathon sessions at her machine, and given to her son for his birthday. Now her daughter is impatiently waiting for a quilt!

At our business meeting Linda Leedham brought along her friend, Barbara Denver. There was discussion about holding a quilting/sewing class for visiting grandchildren in July and the suggestion we have another luncheon on the patio. Priscilla Naworski has taken charge of the quilting/sewing class to be held in July and is making arrangements. Helen White held an amazing trunk show presenting her quilts to the group. Helen utilizes several methods of quilt making, i.e. machine piecing, hand appliqué and appliqué on wool. She is quite a talented quilter. Cecil Sherrod showed a Hawaiian quilt she is making and discussed the techniques, process and great help

she is getting from Nancy O’Brien. Daphne Hansen didn’t have a project to show, but mentioned she is involved with the never-ending job of organizing her fabric. The consensus of the group was “don’t bother.” Paula Scull showed a doll quilt she is finishing up with a technique called primitive hand quilting. Janet Shore showed her fish quilt which she made as a result of the Santa Rosa Quilt Guild challenge. Barbara Arnold finished the king-size quilt-as-you-go wedding quilt she made for her grandniece. She was so pleased

Nothing has ever appeared in the Oakmont News about the group so it is time to let the secret out of the bag. We meet each Tuesday (all year long) from 1:30– 3:30 p.m. in the Arts and Craft Room in the Central Activity Center (the CAC). Anyone can do any kind of needlework but most are knitters and occasionally crochet (that’s me at times), needlepoint or crossstitch. Some are beginners and some are real experts. The experienced help out the inexperienced when we get stuck. Everybody has a good time and laughs a lot! Feel free to call with questions or just drop in and check it out. Some come regularly, some come when they can and some travel a lot so come rarely. Anything is fine. The most important thing is to come and have fun.
