    • Program - Quilt finishing School - Both the day and night programs will address what you need to do to get that quilt ready for the show! You made the top and got it quilted, now to the finishing part . . . Many people procrastinate on finishing the quilt, but it is as essential a part of quilt-making as the piecing and quilting, AND, it is frequently the part that catches the judge’s attention because you were in a hurry to “Git ‘r done!” Learn some tips and tricks this month to overcome your avoidance behavior. There will be a mini-demonstration of squaring-up your quilt and then blocking it after it is washed, and a group discussion on why your choice of fabric matters. THEN, we will break into groups for a round-robin demonstration of different binding and facing techniques as well as adding the sleeve and label. This program is just in time to give you the info you need to get your quilt ready for quilt-show registration. -- Cena Harmon

    Pensacola Quilters Guild will host the Gulf States Quilting Association (GSQA) meeting on Saturday, Oct. 22 at the First United Methodist Church in downtown Pensacola. (6 E. Wright Street). The meeting begins at 10 am and the doors open at 9 am for the additional activities associated with GSQA. The speaker at the meeting will be Emily Taylor, a collage artist who is giving workshops the two days prior to the meeting. (These workshops are already full and have waiting lists.) Please visit emilytaylor.com to see her style of collage and, for fun, watch some of her videos on YouTube.


    PQG needs worker bees for this meeting: a few volunteers to man the sign-in tables plus volunteers to run the door prizes around the room. We would like all of you to consider bringing “treats” for the breakfast table. (PQG used to also host a lunch, but in this day and age of Covid, we will skip that process and hand out lists and maps of good eating locations for people who travel from out of town. Breakfast treats need to be individually wrapped (if you make something homemade) or commercially wrapped (i.e. granola bars, packaged cookies, small yogurts etc.). Coffee service will be provided by the church. Sign-up sheets will be at the Sept. meetings. I hope you will assist. -- Cena Harmon
