We welcomed a new member in February.  She has now sewn her  first quilt top & matching pillow case.  Shelly Barbour made a quilt using a panel called Wings of a Dove using Stonehenge Oh Canada fabric.  It was quilted by Helen Gress & donated to Tisdale Health Care Auxillary for their raffle.  Chris Keays & Helen Gress showed the quilts they had made using the 12 blocks from the pizza box challenge.  A flange binding for a quilt was demonstrated by Chris Keays.    We donated three charity to a Tisdale family that lost their home to fire.  Shelly Barbour gave the group how to instructions, showed lots of examples, & had many tips  on machine applique. Our March meeting, Corry told us there are 3 kinds of paper piecing, English, Cynthis England, & foundation..  She demonstrated foundation paper piecing. Tools needed:  thin foundation paper, stiff card stock, acid free glue stick, small rotary cutter, a 6 inch add a 1/4 inch ruler, & short stitch length 1.5-1.0.   On March 17th the executive of our group decided due to Covid 19 , our activities would be canceled till further notice.  Enjoy quilting
