Highlights of the May 15, 2016 meeting

The meeting was held at the Arbutus library. We were 45 quilters there to learn and share.

The first activity was the Crayon Challenge. Those participating in the challenge each chose 3 crayons blindly from a box at the April meeting. Each had to make a small quilt using the colors of  the crayons in the quilt. Then we had a quilt exchange at this month's meeting. Each person talked about her quilt, the colors she was surprised with and what she tried to accomplish with them. It was so interesting to see what each managed to create!

As with every meeting, we all got to see what people were creating so that we could applaud accomplishments.
