March 2012 Meeting Highlights

25 Members braved the freezing rain to come out to the evening meeting.

The Banner for advertising our Quilt Show has arrived, looks terrific and was admired.  It will be hung outside of the Community Hall for those driving by to see!

Various items were donated  to add to our Toonie Parade.  There are a variety of baskets and anyone still wishing to donate an item is more than welcome to pass it on to
 Marg. Lyle.

Bookmarks for handouts were reviewed. 

Blocks for Kathy’s President Block in Batiks are still being accepted.

Antique Tile Comfort Quilt blocks are still being accepted.

Sign up sheets for various jobs and raffle ticket sales were available.  Please check out the sheets and sign up for an area of your choice!  We would ask that each member sign up for a minimum of two shifts. 

Raffle tickets will be sold at Eddies and the Co-op.  The Bargello Quilt is now hanging at Peachy Keen until the show so you can direct people there to see it.

The block for April and May will be the Weed Whacker block that was demonstrated by Audrey.

 Below is our old Italian square block sewn into a quilt top.
 Here are some of the toy blocks from the Christmas party 2010 sewn into a top.  We will be making two more tops from the remaining blocks.
 Here are the door prizes for the quilt show.  A table runner
 and a wall hanging.

Members were reminded that the Guild would appreciate a donation of 2 dozen cookies per member for our Quilt Show.

Cookbooks have been ordered and should be here for the next meeting.  You may pre-pay if you wish.  Great job ladies! 

New executive – we will be looking for a Vice President, Secretary, Programs, Membership and Co-coordinator for Comfort Quilts. 

Set-up for the Quilt Show will be on Thursday, April 19, 2012.
