At the May meeting of the Bluebonnet Area Quilt Guild, members were treated to a crash course in rulers and their uses by Janis Fischer from All Around the Block in Giddings. Who knew there were so many rulers available to make the task of creating beautiful quilts so much easier? Janis showed us a quilt made with each ruler she demonstrated and even gave us an estimate of the time it took to make each quilt top, which seemed amazingly quick.
Rhonda Cox Dort will be the Guild’s featured speaker June 18. Dort is an extremely talented and imaginative quilter who uses antique handkerchiefs and doilies, beads, ribbons and embroidery to embellish her unique and beautiful quilts. She will be bringing a trunk full of quilts to talk about.
Guests are welcome. The Guild meets at the Sens Center, 200 Briar Ridge Drive in Bellville, starting at 6 p.m. For more information visit www.baqg.org.
