We had a great day with Michelle Griffin learning to make Dresden Plate Blocks.
Here’s one picture from our retreat, if anyone has some good ones please send to Kate for posting!
Yesterday, February 24th, a group of Highland Quilt Guild members got together to assemble “Comfort Quilt” tops to be donated to the mental health unit at St. Martha’s Hospital. 10 tops were completed and they will be quilted by members of the guild.
NOTE: The recipe for the brownies that Valerie brought is now available under the recipes tab above.
Here’s our Updated schedule for the next few months.
*If the school closes due to poor weather unfortunately we are not able to use the school so Guild is cancelled (even if the weather is OK!)
