February 2013 Meting Highlights

 Twenty One ladies turned out for the meeting in February, and not even one guest.
I think most of our quilters are enjoying warmer climates.  I trust you will all come back with new patterns and ideas for those of us left behind.

The library got three new magazines:

March/April 2013 Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting
March/April 2013 Quiltmaker
Spring 2013 Keepsake Quilting

Yvonne H won the membership draw.

The February UFO had 13 people attending. 

A retreat for March 1st and 2nd has been booked.  Friday the 1st will be from 9 to 9 with a potluck at 6pm.  All are welcome to supper even if you are not quilting.  Saturday the 2nd will be from 9 to 4pm.

A motion was made  to donate $100 to the church kitchen for the use of the kitchen.  

Jane Zielke from Jane’s Crafts in The Pas has a long arm machine for sale.  Call Audrey for contact information.

Glenna D has fabric samples from a shop in the Gulf Islands, who is willing to put orders together to ship to local quilters.  You can view the samples at the March retreat. 

Kathy from Tamarack Shack had sample packets of Quilter’s Dream Batting that show the different types of batting available for order.

Kathy demonstrated month two of the Mystery Quilt project.  More half square triangles!

Audrey demonstrated the new Comfort Block called the Exploding Pineapple.  The block will be a light and a dark color with the light in the center.

Nadine M has given herself a challenge to make Comfort Quilts to donate to all the adults in the Community Living Disability Program.
Here are the first three.

Show and Tell

Happy Quilting
