Last Meeting as President

Friday was the last meeting that I presided at as President of the East Cobb Quilters' Guild. It was our Christmas/Holiday party and a good time was had by everyone. It was also time to elect new officers and they then took over at the end of the meeting. I had a great time as President and am delighted that I am turning the gavel over to Danielle for next year. She will do a great job!

Here is a good photo of the Executive Committee that help lead the guild during this year.

It is a tradition of the guild that the outgoing President is given a quilt made by members of the guild. The First Vice President (Danielle) is responsible for getting the quilt made.

As you probably know, I love lime green. Danielle choose lime green, purple and white/light. The block is a split nine patch and each block is signed. There are even some extra blocks on the back. It was quilted for me by Betty, who is a wonderful quilter.

Here is the quilt laying on the piano at the church where we meet. Isn't it beautiful?

Here is Danielle and me holding the quilt. Look at how large it is. Danielle had not gotten the label on it so she sewed it on this Monday when she came over for lunch. I took a nap under it on Friday afternoon to break it in. I love my quilt!!!!


  1. that is lovely!

    i love how it seems to sparkle.

  2. what a perfect quilt!!!
    and a great gift!!!

  3. Wow, lucky you! They did an amazing job. I'm sure it is well deserved.

  4. I'm so glad you love the quilt Melinda. It was a joy to design. Thank you for serving the guild! You've left me some really big shoes to wear.

  5. Wow, what a beautiful quilt. I like the off-centeredness of it, and the colors just sparkle. I guess that helps make having all the responsibilities of being president worthwhile??

  6. I love your quilt, Melinda. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Stay safe and warm.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
