August Meeting and Quilt Show Judging

Ella Lucas, Martha Ginn, Susie Jackson, Ellen Hall
It's not too early to begin to think about what we will enter in the 2012 quilt show. Our program at the August meeting featured the judging sheet with discussion and explanation of what each part of the form meant. Martha Ginn described what creates good visual impact. Ella Lucas discussed the quilting design and how to determine what was enough and appropriate for the piece. Ellen Hall talked about the importance of good, solid construction. Susie Jackson gave pointers on what is necessary for the quilter to furnish to the longarm quilter.

Claire Clinkscales

The church secretary where we meet, Claire Clinkscales, recently welcomed a new baby grandson. To show our appreciation for all Claire does for PBQ, we presented her with one of our children's quilts. She was ecstatic!
