May 2016 Meeting Recap

Business Review

No business this month, we had a pop-up shop and book sale instead! HUGE THANKS to Dana from Winter Creek Cloth treating us to a fantastic pop-up shop with piles and piles of fat quarters in every color of the rainbow!

Q3 Charity: 1-Hour Baskets! We are making 1-Hour baskets for local nursing homes - they fit perfectly on the back of a wheel chair! SO HANDY! We'll be providing the fusible fleece for this project. Please see Sarah at any meeting or sew day for your fleece! Hour baskets will be due at the September Meeting. Make as many as you can! 

Show & Tell Highlights

Janet is making a mini quilt with paper pieced tea pots! She's hoping to make about 30 tea pots. They are fantastic Janet!

Lisa shared a top secret surprise quilt. Beautiful job, Lisa!

Dana was passing off a finished top to have Lisa with Upstairs Birdie quilt for her. Hoping we get to see the finished quilt at the next meeting Dana! It is gorgeous!!

Don created this original mini quilt called "Cat Surprise!" each quilt square can be flipped to the other side and the backing is made from cat fabrics. So creative and fun, Don!

Looking Ahead to June

A reminder that there will be NO swap or sew day in June. Instead, we'll be having our meet-up with Eugene Modern Quilt Guild on our scheduled sew day and swapping tote bags then. Hope to see you there!!
