February Meeting recap

Hello MOD quilters!  Well, despite a rainy day, 
hings got Hopping at the Saturday meeting!

Here's a review:

Members brought their purple/pink filler blocks and decided the layout of the 
Dec. Block challenge Cheddar Quilt. Kim offered to piece the top.
Barbara batting( unless Jackie can add to the cost when she quilts)
Helen to bind, Jessica offered to get backing for the quilt.

Even if your not able to make a meeting, you can still submit your Challenge blocks. 
Please mail them to me BEFORE the next meeting to be included...
These are group quilts, and to be a member and to make this group successful 
we need your participation...

Offer batting, backing fabrics, bindings etc... It will be much appreciated...

It was decided that we will have this quilt long armed, and once we know what the price will be, 
we will ask for donations to the pay pal account to pay for it.
this is another way you can contribute.

The Feb Bock challenge, 1/4 circles, was laid out and decided. 
Amy offered to piece and quilt the top.
Lisa will provide backing.
Carole will bind

We need batting and binder for this quilt. please email me.
Once Amy has it pieced she can tell us how big of a backing she needs.
it will be aprox 26 X 32? in that area...

We are moving forward with plans for a SHOW sometime in OCTOBER.
Without going into all the details of  space etc.
A separate post will contain info on the quilt challenge for the show...

  1. I had to leave the meeting before the Scrap Swap and didn't get to donate my scraps. Someone was kind enough to leave me a bag anyway! I would be happy to put a bag in the mail for whomever that thoughtful donor was, so please let me know. I'm happy to ship some fabric out of here; it's like the way the cities have to ship the snow out of town 'cause they have no more room for it...
