Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
Let’s start with some bits from our guild meeting last evening. Our raffle quilt for this season was unveiled-a master work. Sylvia took lots of photos of quilts last night which will be appearing on our Facebook page soon. Wait til you see the raffle quilt. Thanks to the “Quilt til You Wilt” group for all of their work!

A group of our members has been working on a mystery quilt project. The finished quilts were also unveiled last evening. All were so inspiring-I always enjoy seeing  how the choice of a different color palette can make such a difference in the finished appearance–one pattern in many variations.

Annette Meyer-Grunow told us about an exhibit of women artists currently at the Castellani Art Gallery on the Niagara University campus. Annette has one of her art quilts included in the show. All of the works are by women artists from the WNY area. The exhibit will be up until August–definitely a good destination for a field trip in the nice weather. Here’s a link so you can check it out.

Foundation paper piecing was a focus of last evening’s meeting-our raffle quilt was constructed with the technique, and Pam Pandolfi taought a mini lesson and demo so members could try out the technique. If you enjoy it, or want to try it, here’s a link to a very cute spring time bunny. After you make the shamrock that was shared in an earlier post, you can move on to an April bunny project! LOL   click here for the bunny

Don’t forget to add a comment  so you will get another entry for the prize drawing to take place at our birthday party next month! Thanks to all of you who have been commenting recently. It helps me to know that someone is actually reading these posts, and that I’m now just talking to myself!

    Thanks for the paper pieces bunny pattern. I love paper piecing. Even though I’m busy getting ready for the quilt show I’m going to find time to make this tiny quilt.

    Thanks for posting the link to the Castellani . All the women in the exhibit will be glad if you come by, it is very interesting.
    Had fun at the meeting with the Mystery quilts and the raffle quilt is a nice memory of being in Venice. Great job.
    Was sorry to have missed the early bird instructions . Annette
