Hunters Glen Baptist Church has updated their security procedures: the north entrance doors of the church must be closed during all hours except during church services. Please park on the south side of the church. The south entrance will be open until 7PM. You can enter through that south door and walk straight through to the north side of the building, then take the stairs or the elevator to the Guild meeting upstairs.
Martha says,"[This] trunk show highlights 30-40 quilts that I have made over the years. You will see my first quilt and what I am currently working on. I'm one of those quilters who is always looking for something new, a different technique or a quilt that I have never made before. You will see the different styles and phases I have gone through over the past 30 years. If you ever come to my house, you will see quilts hanging on every available wall, draped over chairs and couches. I love modern quilts as much as traditional but my "latest" love is any quilt with houses on it. My quilt collection includes over 30 house quilts with many more on the UFO list. My collection includes redwork, swap block quilts, paper-pieced, appliqué, both hand and machine, and One Block Wonders. You name it, I have probably made it."

This fun quilt is a twist on the traditional Dresden Plate block. Each blade is turned into a wonky house, making this Dresden Neighborhood come to life. Every quilt will be a little different because your creativity will come into play designing each house with a special roof, door and windows. It will be your own unique creation! This is Martha's most popular class!
For more photos of this fun block and a list of everything you will need,
see the Supply List (kit fee $7).

Instructions for Blocks 1 through 8 are now available.
Introducing our newest challenge, the Quiltmakers Block of the Month! This challenge features 13 blocks over 6 months (in case you want to set your blocks on point) and is a study in color value and its importance in creating a successful quilt! At each meeting, we will be revealing two blocks, with the last three being revealed at the March meeting. For instructions, patterns, and fabric requirements, head on over to the Challenge page.
The raffle quilt for Quilt Plano 2020 will be made up of red and white blocks constructed by members of the guild. All blocks must be made from the fabric in the packets that were handed out at the January guild meeting. If you have the packet but have misplaced the instructions, you may download another copy here. Blocks are due back no later than the April guild meeting.
We have a great group of speakers and workshops scheduled for 2019! Check out the list for the new year on the Programs page. More details coming soon.
