Today was a good turn out! We had the following members attending: Sue K, Susy Ca, Kathy H, Kathy W, Cil, Deanna (secretary), JoAnn, Shirley, Lynn and Cis.

This is Cil, Sue K, and Shirley working while listening to Deanna's story.

JoAnn, Kathy W (front), Kathy H (back), and Susy also listening to what Deanna has to say.

We talked about our quilt that was in the SWWFair, here in Centralia/Chehalis. Our quilt is behind Barb and Cil - who worked at the fair to get more appliquers. The quilt got a blue ribbon and Honorable Mention.

Kathy H got "Best of Class" for her quilt.

Cis didn't get her quilt done in time to go into the fair. We did have a good turnout with our group entering quilts. This is a Civil War house saying quilt.

Kathy W finished her top she was making with the cute little flower "people." It's really cute!

Kathy also finished up her block! "Hearts and Flowers" is the name, and both of us just love this block!! It's really pretty and does look like a sunflower.

Susy finished up her border for this quilt top. She's looking forward to the next border. It might be a hexagon border, as she was saying she was waiting on the papers for the hexagons. This is a mariner's compass quilt.

We talked about Debbie MacInnis's "keeping the Past Quilt." Her store is online and notions are also available.

Kathy H, was showing her quilt she was binding on. It's really cute!

October 8th in Olympia, $35 workshop all day. It's at the Baptist Church in Olympia. Eval and Assess Antique Quilts.

Susy C, lost her dog recently. Everyone gave her our sympathy. Her daughter got a poodle to replace their dog.

Quilt Contest deadline is Dec 15th.

September 22nd is our next Potluck. Asked to bring in an old quilt that we may have. We'll have a special show and share with the antique quilts (more than 20 years old).

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the next meeting!

Today was a good meeting. We had 7 show up - maybe more after the editor left. The shop had the "$5 Quilt" BOM sign up today. The blocks will be passed out at the Sept Quilt Club meeting.

While that was going on, we were in the back room enjoying each other's company.

Carol showed off her quilt top she just finished putting together. The bears are all done in cross stitch. It is the "stamped" cross stitch and not "counted" cross stitch. Carol has joined our group! We're thrilled to have another member!

Sue and Barb were hard at work. They were working on their projects.

Kathy W came in and showed the blocks she's making for one of her grandbaby's. She has the hard part of her children telling her what colors they want. Sometimes she's told what pattern too!

Another of Kathy's blocks. She had three of them, and we all were thrilled to see what she's been up to!

This is another she's working on! We all love this pattern!

Lynn (editor) bought the pattern on the table as well as worked on her needle case. She had to leave early, so didn't get to do a lot today.

Sue wanted everyone to know the next Potluck is Sept 22, 2016. She is asking that members bring an "OLD" quilt top or quilt to the meeting. She wants to share older quilts with everyone. We all marked that down. We even had a chat about what "old" was. We determined our husbands were, but then decided that 50 years or older would do.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Aug 25, 2016. Also looking forward to see what awards were awarded to our members at the SWW Fair! Hoping we all do well. Our quilt is entered for a prize, so it will be fun to see if we win anything!
