quilt guild meeting

Last night was our annual baby quilt give away. Every year we donate the quilts to local charities to give away during the year, this year we had 275 quilts.

After the quilt give away we had a "make it and take it" program. The project was these cute mesh zipper bags. The "board" had kits for everyone. They sell this mesh at fabric stores but you can also buy it (much cheaper) at large home improvement stores, called Pet Mesh. It's very supple.

They had tables set up around the room with a board member and a couple of sewing machines at each. We each worked on our own little bag , it took no time at all.

The machine sewed easily through the mesh.

You end up with a cute quilt notions bag.

One of the board ahead of time made a canvas bag with a machine embroidered motif.
