2020 Challenge announced at the January's meeting.
"Scrappy Stash Quilt"
The challenge this year is to make a quilt entirely from scraps (except the batting may be purchased). Everything else must come from your stash, including the backing!
(You can make a scrappy back or trade fabrics with a friend.)
Several quilts and ideas for scrap quilts were shown at the January 15 guild meeting. Challenge quilts will be displayed at the November 2020 meeting.
Cell Phone Etiquette
Please turn your cell phones off or put on vibrate during our guild meetings. If it must be on and it could bother others, use the “silent” mode and move away to talk.
Words of Wisdom
My favorite quote from Brenda Sommers is: “If you are a new quilter, or a quilter with shaky confidence – keep quilting!!!! You will get better, I am a much better quilter than when I started ...” Isn’t this where we all are? Loving what we do and getting better and better at it each day.
