Classic South Quilt Guild meets Friday, September 21

The Classic South Quilt Guild met Friday afternoon, September 21, in Wesley Hall of First United Methodist Church.

Members enjoyed delicious refreshments prepared by Annette and Jim Neal during a time of fellowship.

Lisa Sweet, president, presided and Donna Taylor offered a prayer.

Following business, Donna Taylor introduced both the raffle quilt block and instructions and the Quilt of Valor (QOV) block and instructions. As always, the QOV will be presented to a living member of the armed services, past or present, The guild will make two presentations in May at their annual end-of-year luncheon. This year’s red, white, and blue theme is a modified pinwheel.

The raffle quilt will be an Amish block in the traditional black and brights. The proceeds from this raffle will be used to purchase supplies for the guild, fabrics for charity projects, and door prizes for the December Christmas luncheon. Door prizes for the May luncheon will be donated by guild members. The quilt will be raffled at Mule Day 2019 due to the time it takes to make three quilts.

Many members brought lovely projects they have done since the first meeting of the guild year.

At the October meeting on Friday, October 19, the group will work on the QOV quilt. This will be a workshop from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Each member should have two blocks each made by that time. These will be arranged, put together later, quilted and bound by other members.

The members will also bring pillowcases they have made for the Ronald McDonald House in Augusta.

Those interested in learning more about the guild or becoming a member are invited to join the meetings the third Friday of each month at 2 p.m. in Wesley Hall of First United Methodist Church.
