Meeting turned out great, with 14 member attending. We all enjoyed our potluck as well as each others company. Thank you goes to Joyce K for taking the photos and sending them to the author. She did an awesome job of taking photos.

We would like to say a BIG Thank you! to JoAnn S for all her hard work in organizing the project for the Brest Cancer Survivors. She ironed all the fabrics that came in, as well as collecting the fabrics up to the week before the quilt show. She did an awesome job in marking prices and getting the tables set up with Lynn helping her out.


Quilt blocks for the drawing had a great turnout.


These are the blocks that were in the drawing.


As well as JoAnn working on her block to be added to the blocks.


Sue K won all the blocks! She was thrilled to have them.


Lynn presented Cil with the money ($563) that was earned for her Lewis County Breast Cancer Survivors group. We thanked everyone that donated, and was thrilled at the results. The best day of the quilt show was the Friday morning it started. We weren't thinking when this photo was taken, JoAnn should have been in on this photo - sorry JoAnn.


Lynn passed on her "coordinator" position to Sue K. Sue has offered to guide the group in the right direction. Lynn wanted a break from having to keep everyone on task (smiling).


Sue showed her pattern for her sisters quilt piece.


Lynn showed her quilt which she finished. She is going to teach a class for the "2 Fabric Applique" quilt wall hanging.


Sharon showed her two quilts that she made for her grandchildren.


Joyce showed the blocks she's working on. She was adding the floss to the flowers.


Deanna B. showed her quilt. Not sure if she made it or if she acquired it.


Blocks for the quilt everyone agreed on where given out with the fabric. Everyone was asked to have the blocks back by December to give both Kathy W and Barb time to have the quilt done by our Annual meeting in May 2016. Thank you to Susy for figuring out the quilt blocks and getting them cut for everyone.


Everyone having a good time.


Lynn asked for three members to be on a committee to get the Annual meeting organized. There will three members from both Myron's Girls and Haven't Missed a Stitch to get this going.

Our next meeting will be October 8, 2015. Looking forward to seeing everyone there! Come join us!

At this writing, the editor (Lynn) was not present at the meeting.


Joyce showed Lynn her Show and Tell quilts before she headed to the group meeting. Joyce, JoAnn and Lynn were at the Forrest Grange getting ready for the booth at the quilt show. This is one of Joyce's finished quilts.


Here's a close up.


She finished this for her niece.


This is the background fabric she used.

Lynn received the patterns for the quilt the group is working on. Lynn will get the fabric when it comes in. Barb met up with JoAnn and Lynn at the Grange. She had the patterns copied to give out to all the quilters.

Sue K, Deanna and Joyce where at the quilt shop meeting. Barb showed up for about 30 mins. A good time was had by all.
