August is our Members Showcase

Joanne Florence & Susan Probst


We have so many wonderful quilters in our guild. You just had to go to our Quilt Show to see that. This month we are lucky to have two of them to wow us with their quilts and quilting story. 

Joanne Florence won Most Traditional these years at our Quilt Show. She very well could have won Best Quilting and Best Piecing as well. Her quilt was beautiful, and I can’t wait to see her other masterpieces.

Our second member is Susan Probst.

“I have been quilting for almost 9 years. I love learning new techniques and using my long arm machine. I have tried various methods of quilting, but my quilting journey began with appliqué. I feel like the more I learn, the more I realize how much more there is to learn. I am humbled to be asked to show my quilts! Many teachers will see quilts from their classes! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to my quilting journey.”

“August is like the Sunday of Summer.  A time to Relax and Savor the Golden Moments."  

I find myself, enjoying the sunsets, and the long warm days give me plenty of time to be playing in my sewing room, or outside dyeing fabric.  

Playing and Fun equal Creativity  in my world,  and that is what I am focusing on for my No Rules Challenge Entry.  I  cannot wait to see all of the fabulous creations  which will be presented at the August 8th  Meeting.  Best part of this challenge is that it doesn’t have to be totally finished to be in the Reveal! 

Now that’s my kind of Challenge! If you need more information please contact Elaine Pappas-Puckett

It is not too soon to begin thinking about the next year for BCQG.   Please consider volunteering to serve on the Board, or on a Standing Committee.  The success of BCQG depends on the generosity of its membership to volunteer their time and talents!  It has truly been a rewarding and fun experience for me!  

The July meeting with Jean Impey was so fascinating!  It was interesting to see how Batiks and other fabrics are made by Hoffman Fabrics!  I can’t wait to see all the Fabulous Faces from the workshop! 

The August meeting is going to be Fabulous because it is Members Showcase!  I am always amazed at the Creativity, and Talent of the BCQG membership!  Also it will be the Big Reveal of the No Rules Challenge and that is going to be so much fun to see!  

Enjoy the Long Summer Days and Happy Quilting !
