The guild, now 100-plus members strong, will meet at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 14, at the Petoskey Friendship Center, 1322 Anderson Road in Petoskey. A brief "social hour" will precede the 6:30 p.m. business meeting, followed by a short show-and-tell session where guild members reveal their latest completed quilting projects.
Jackie Compton will provide this month's educational programming. A resident of Kewadin, Compton is a Little Traverse Bay Quilters Guild member with a special interest in pineapple quilts. According to Compton, the pineapple pattern makes good use of the fabric scraps every quilter has in their possession.
Compton will also teach a class on the pineapple pattern titled "From Trash to Treasure" from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 15, at the Charlevoix Public Library. Cost is $15.
