March Meeting

31 members came out on a lovely spring thaw evening.

The day was spend going over the quilt show plans and putting together a final Quilt of Comfort and Remberance top.

Our quilt for the Art show is ready. Kathy did a beautiful job of the quilting.
The baby challenge quilts should all be turned in to Kathy for judging. Good luck to all the entries.
Here are some of the winter wear unfinished blocks, the rest csn be turned into Evelyn on Thursday April 8, when you bring in your quilt show entries.
There is still an opening for a library person for a two year term.
Members are reminded to sign up for times to volunteer for the Quilt show and for the set up on Thursday. If you haven't signed up for something and you want to help on Thursday, just show up at the Community hall after lunch. No help will be refused for Friday or Saturday as well.
Here are some of the finished pinwheel blocks for the March and April comfort blocks.
Lorie and Kathy had a power point presentation, and a hands on demo at the meeting. The subject was tessellations.

The power point demo

Some items have been received for the Twoonie Parade and any other donations will be accepted during the quilt show setup time.
Members are asked to bring two dozen cookies each and kitchen helpers should bring their own tea towels.
Quilt racks are needed for the stage display. If you have one to lend the contact person is Audrey Neufeld.
