The Nimble Thimbles Quilt Guild always come up with the most fun activities.
I like to share them with you to give you ideas that you can take back to your own guilds or quilt groups.

Last week we played a fun game called Quilto.
Think of Bingo, except substitute quilting terms.
Each person was given two Quilto cards and a stack of buttons.
The host would pull a letter combined with a term from a bag. For example, if she said "Q-Batting", I would place a button on my card.
When 5 buttons lined up in a row, we shouted "Quilto!"

When I saw my pile had covered buttons I knew I had to play.

Stacks of wonderful prizes were waiting up on the table.
When we became eligible for a win, we pulled a number from a basket...

...and located our matching gift on the table.

It was my lucky night!
I won chocolate (yes!) and a kit, complete with fabrics, pattern and ruler to make a pillow.
My thanks to Kathy O'Brian, activity chair, who keeps the meetings fun and full of surprises.

That sounds like so much fun, the guild meetings I used to go to were so boring and full of business that I stopped going.

Looks like fun. We are so lucky to have guilds in this day and age.
