August 27, 2015

Quilting meeting today was great! We had 12 members attend with one leaving and another coming in. A few members left early, while some stayed around till after 2:30 pm.

This is all the stuff that was brought for the group to buy what they wanted. The left overs are going to the quilt show on Sept 11 & 12th. All proceeds are going to the Lewis County Breast Cancer Survivors. We collected a lot of money today, and hope to collect more by the time of the quilt show.

Kathy W's quilt blocks from the quilt she's working on.

The link to these are in our last meeting notes.

Kathy has been doing a great job on this quilt!

Susy has been working on these blocks as well.

Susy has been working on these block for some time. 

Sharon was working on her block as well.

Deanna was showing everyone her blocks that the group made for her. She's getting ready to put it together and has picked the two fabrics to go with it.

We all talked about needing to do a quilt for our demo quilt. We all picked a quilt pattern and have all picked the blocks we wanted to do. We all voted NOT to do the December block. It was discussed that everyone is tired of doing the blocks every quarter, and that they would like to work on their own projects.

We talked about what happened at the Fair and what could work out better. We all agreed that a quilt with our table would help out better, because the quilt from Rainy Daze Quilt Guild was an issue at the Fair. No one knew the pattern or what it was all about, yet it was behind our booth.

Lynn has the center pieces for the Dresden Plates that are due next month.

We will be doing Midnight Garden, by Sara Tuttle and Sandy Brawner

The following is the list of who's doing which block:

Kathy W offered to coordinate and work on the borders, as well as putting the quilt top together. Barb offered to donate batting and machine quilting when done. JoAnn offered to do the binding. Barb is getting the patterns copied for use so we can have a "backup" in case someone looses their pattern. Kathy W and Lynn are working with Evelyna to order the background fabric for the quilt. Lynn offered to cut the blocks to be give out with the patterns.
See you at our next meeting: September 10, 2015.
