New year new location! January’s Dogwood Quilters Guild monthly meeting was super fun with five new members to start the year out right. Welcome all new members!
We are still meeting the first Saturday of the month, same time 9:30 am (get there early) but now back to the original location, Grace Episcopal Church On Mt. Olive.
We Show and Tell at the end of EVERY meeting! Here’s my fav from January.
Ever tried a MYSTERY QUILT? Come to every meeting for the next clue and directions. Completers get prizes btw. Here’s some pics of 2017 completers
This years Mystery Quilt is called PINS AND NEEDLES, sew with us!
Remember February 3rd is a quilt binding class with our local quilt shop owner Pam Goggans of Sager Creek Quilts. Bring a small quilt, placemat, or potholder to bind- along with your travel machine and thread.
This year we plan on increasing our pet quilt donations to Tailwaggers, Quilts of Honor for the Old Vets Home, and baby quilts for the Siloam Springs Hospital.
Keep in mind that in April there is a small quilt challenge all in violet or purple. Need details? Come to the meeting or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
December is the time to celebrate with our annual luncheon. Bring a side dish or dessert and don’t forget a wrapped fat quarter of any quilt shop quality variety.
Also, reminding all members that January is our GET R DONE prizewinning meeting. Bring in a photo of all your UFO projects for 2018’s list and receive prizes for the stuff you got done in 2017!
What a fun day in Siloam Springs! Saturday’s are my favorite! I get to go to the guild meeting and the kids hit the parks and library! There were so many baby blankets donated to the hospital. Our number so far this year is 115. Here are a few…
With our “Git Er Done” list that will be wrapping up at the end of the year, the Dogwood Quilters are not only attempting to finish collected projects over the past few decades, but it is nearing CHRISTMAS TIME!

July meeting featured a group sew in with one our own Dogwood Quilters, Sharon Phillips. If you have ever purchased a Hex N More template and didn’t know what to do with it-
This was your class! Honestly I wasn’t interested at first because in my mind HEXY= COMPLICATED but when I heard the word WONKY I was all in!
Also, any class, block, or pattern that uses up scraps from your stash ( a stashbuster) is my favorite! I personally have a deep love for old fashioned quilts made by grannies using scrap fabric, old clothing, and/or flour sacks.
Check out my hexy!
Can’t wait for retreat to finish this one up.
