Bulls Eye

Our November meeting was a great hands on experience with soft applique. Those that wanted to participate brought 4 fat quarters and went home with at least one bulls eye block.

Here is Heather with the amazing EASY CIRCLE CUT by Sharon Hultgren. What a handy tool to have for this project. Some ladies also used paper plate templates which worked just as well.

We were divided into groups of four people, since a square bulls eye block has 4 corners to it. We got busy with cutting our circles and sewing them together, then cutting them into quarters, swapping, and sewing them together again!

The following four pictures are the results of the evening's four groups. Look how great they turned out! Thanks Sherron for a great lesson on soft applique.

Kazuko's mouth watering rolls

This spread of treats is just some of what we had at our Summer Social in July. There were all kinds of glorious foods there and one in particular that I could not stay out of was Kazuko's rolls. I asked her for the recipe so you all could make them at home and eat the entire batch. Hopefully I didn't eat ALL of these rolls and left a few for you at our summer social so some of you remember how good these little morsels were. Thanks Kazuko!

8oz Cream cheese 8oz Sour cream
8oz Cheese (shredded, any kind you like) ½ cup Chopped olives

Upcoming November Meeting

This week's guild meeting will be a great hands on experience. We will be learning the soft applique method shown in the pictures below of Sherron and Wendy. Sherron will be teaching us this method and you get to go home with the start of something beautiful! You need to go shopping and bring 4 fat quarters to guild meeting to begin with. We talked about the type of fabrics we would all enjoy last month and it was decided that we would do autumn-country colors. There is a great collection mentioned that Seasons of Home carries and it is called Kansas Trouble or something like that. There are also a few other collections of fabric that have a similar look that would be great to use, also at Seasons of Home. Check the newsletter for more information, just remember to go shopping before Thursday evening! Also remember to bring your machine and the other items listed in your newsletter.

For those of you that are part of the Heber Valley Quilters board there is a meeting on Thursday at 6:15. For those of you who are not part of the board but are willing to help and serve on the board, please come to the meeting. You and your skills and talents will be welcomed. Many hands make light work!
