November Guild Meeting - MadAboutPatchwork

The November meeting of the London Friendship Guild was held at Chalmers Presbyterian Church instead of our usual location. Hopefully everyone remembered! We did have a good number of ladies present. Everyone pitched in to help set up. Thanks so much ladies for going with the flow and helping out by taking chairs along and getting the room cleaned up at the end of the evening. Here are several of the ladies getting things set up:

Our able Co President, Barb A. led the meeting this month. She even did a little dancing for us LOL! Thanks Barb for keeping us all on track this month.


Our speaker this month was Pam D. from MadAboutPatchwork. She did a great trunk show of her journey with quilting.


This was Pam's first quilt and was very traditional:

Her style soon evolved into more modern quilts with a lot of them made with solids and no borders:

She uses very simple shapes and patterns but the quilts look very sophisticated:

The sliced fruit pattern in very pretty colours:


The colours on the photo are a bit off due to the lighting. This was a very fun quilt done in the tumbler block pattern:

Chris and Amelia are making sure everyone got their tickets at the break:

...and we got to shop Pam's store...look at those yummy colours!

Many of us went home with much lighter pocket books after the class!!

More photos of the evening can be seen on our Picasa web album.

We also had an amazing show and tell! Check out this quilt...it has more than 10,000 pieces in it!
