The October program on Binding Techniques, given by Deb Freese, was full of ideas! Deb shared lots of examples and had carefully noted the type of technique she used on each quilt. She shared articles and instructions, too.
Thank you, Deb, for a great program!
(Thank you to Alice Allinson for providing the pictures this month.)

The 2018-2019 Challenge this year was “Applique”. Kathaleen Winkleman and Andrea O’Brien gathered the Challenge entries as members entered the building for the meeting. There were 21 entries. Entries were paraded around the room; members cast their votes for their favorite quilt.
The winners of the 2018 – 2019 challenge (Applique):
- 1st place: Debbie Hudnall; her prize was a layer cake.
- 2nd place: Bonnie Niebruegge; her prize was two charm packs.
- 3rd place: Barb Roberts; her prize was marking pens and an ironing sheet.
There will be a category in next year’s quilt show where challenge pieces can be submitted.
Rose Marie Smith gave a wonderful presentation on the history of Kaffe Fassett (his name rhymes with ‘safe asset’). She shared all of the quilts she made while following his career.
Kaffe is an American-born artist who is best known for his colorful designs in the decorative arts—needlepoint, patchwork, knitting, painting, and ceramics. Kaffe is the author of more than 40 books, starting in 1997. Rose Marie shared a large number of her collection of his books for us to look through.
Thank you, Rose Marie, for sharing your love of Kaffe and inspiring us with your many colorful quilts.
