March 2012 Meeting

As always, our March meeting was fun and inspiring. Our first order of business was the bylaws. The will be more to come on that subject in the next few months. Next came a retreat update and some more examples of the project that has been selected to work on. Aren't these awesome!

 This retreat, like all the others promises to be a resounding success!
Our generous ladies had more wonderful projects that will be donated to various causes.

 We also had some lovely BOM blocks shared.

 There were some very promising works in progress shared.

Here are the amazing finishes shared. Good work ladies!

 Last but not least Dianne shared her news that her block, previously featured in "Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks" magazine is also the middle block in one of the quilts from"Quilts from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks" magazine. Congratulations Dianne!

February 2012 Meeting

Sorry about the late posting for the February Meeting. I wasn't able to attend so the pictures have been taken and sent to me. First we have some lovely starts to our block of the month this year!
 Again we have some generous ladies sharing their talents with others in the form of donation quilts and pillowcases.

 We are also continuing to work on UFO's and had some projects shared that promise to be wonderful.
 Under the rules of our UFO program a quilt top is considered a finish unless you declare that the quilting and binding are the UFO part of the project. We had some really lovely tops shared and since I wasn't there I'm not sure which are considered finishes or UFO's. Congratulations, these are beautiful!

 Finally we had some really great finishes(I hope I have this all correct)! Congratulations ladies.

 Thanks so much to our photographer, I'm not sure who you are, but you are appreciated. Thanks also to our President Tina. The pictures were taken with her camera and emailed to me. I appreciate your help!
