January 2015 Meeting Highlights

We had 27 members and one guest present for our January meeting.  We had a small group out during the day and worked on a few projects.

Our Round Robins are getting close to finished.  Our instructions for January were to add bling to the quilt tops and our last months instructions is "Dealers Choice" so participants can do whatever they like for the last round.

Our program for the evening was demonstrated by Audrey and is our newest comfort block.  It is a snowball block using the Moda fabrics we have collected. It is going to be beautiful!

We had promised to make quilts for the family that is moving into the Habitat for Humanity house and Glenna has finished the quilt for the son.  She designed it herself and even digitized the Lego characters that are the boys favorite!  Wonderful job Glenna!

We also finished the Rag quilt that Phyl demonstrated last spring.

Wendy from Fabriculous will be coming up on Feb 27th and 28th to teach a workshop on the Weekender Tote Bag.  Please contact Sheri if you are interested in joining in this workshop.  The fee for the class is $90 and that includes supper on Friday and lunch on Saturday.   The kits for the bag are available though Wendy so please contact her directly to pick out your fabrics for  your kits, they are around $90.
