February 2012

There were 25 members and one guest at our February meeting.  The afternoon was very quite, with most of our members away enjoying warmer climates.

 Information was received from the Flin Flon Arts Council about the Northern Juried Art Show being held in The Pas on April 26-28th.

Kathy D took these squares home and sewed them together.  We cut them pre ragged on our Go -cutter.  That made easy work of a rag quilt.

This is another quilt for Rae's challenge.
 A Touch Quilt was given to the Community Living Disability Services client, as shown below.
 Here is our completed zig zag quilt.  Quilted by Kathy of Tamarack Shack.
 Here is our comfort block for February and March.  In Jewel tones please.

Kathy received a phone call from Candy Greff who received our Quilt of Remembrance after her son died in Afghanistan on October 29, 2011.  (  http://ccrquilts.ca/ )

Members were reminded that a new executive is needed for May.  (Positions open include secretary, treasurer, program, membership, and vice-president.)
The upcoming quilt show was reviewed.

Sign up sheets for the various jobs at the quilt show were available. (Members were asked to take on at least two shifts.)
Entry forms are due April 9th.

Bargello Raffle tickets will be sold in the community.

There will be two merchants for the show. (Prairie Chicks from Hague and Mami’s Quilts in Duck Lake)

Comfort Block   The Antique tile block will continue as the comfort block for February.

The Program for the evening was Audrey Neufeld demonstrating the Lazy Angle Ruler and the Hugs and Kisses pattern from Jaybird Quilts.

Also members are reminded to work on their unfinished square for the quilt show.  12 1/2 inches completed.  The theme is insects.


Happy Quilting
