March Meeting

We had a very nice turn out for our meeting, and a lot of people brought there machine for the afternoon quilting workshop. Over 20 cat quilts were made and thanks to all that participated and to those that took home some quilt to serge the edges. I"m sure the SPCA will be very happy with them.
Our retreat at the Victoria Inn, room 101, is set for April 18 and 19. Please bring your sewing machines, extention cords, a floral/spring fat quater for the exchange, two copies of a cookie recipe for the recipe exchange, a half dozen goodies for us to nibble on and of coarse a quilting project to work on.

We discussed the Quilts of Valour project and made a motion to donate our maple leaf quilt that was finished last fall to the project. I have contacted the organizer and she will be sending me inforation on where to send it. Their website is

We had a fanastic show and tell. Here is Blanches Bow Tie quilt with the blocks that she had won a few years ago. It is hand quilted and the Bow Ties are sashed with attic windows!

Here is Adele's Northwoods quilt that she also hand quilted.

Lori made a banner for her church, i'm sure they are going to love it.

We had a great response for the kids bags for Family Services...way to go ladies!

Our program for the evening was curved piecing and everyone got to sit down and try one. Our new comfort block has curved piecing, it is a cute turtle block that will make a great kids quilt. The guild provided the background fabric and members use their own fabric for the turtles. I have posted pictures of the three i made on my blog if you where not there to see them.

The complete block for our Mystery quilt project was revealed at the meeting and next month you will get the border instructions. We are all looking forward to seeing how everyone's turned out.
Have a great month quilting!
