April BOM Now Available

Hi folks! I'm still working on processing the photos and meeting review from last night but Elly has our April 2017 BOM instructions ready to go, so I didn't want to delay.

Aren't they cute?!
Also, remember Evie's kind invitation to join the Nightowls (the evening group from Citrus Belt Quilters) tomorrow night at the Grand Terrace Senior Center for a flower themed trunk show (sorry I missed the name of the quilter). Doors open at 5p with potluck at 5:30p. Contact Evie if you have any questions.

Reminder: Guild meeting Tuesday!

You have T-minus a few days to wrap up the rest of your 50% Challenges because it's almost April meeting time!

Here's your reminder list of things to bring:

  • Your homemade name badge
  • Your Raincross Quilt Guild pin, which is now worth an EXTRA ticket in the door prize drawing! If you don't have one, you can purchase one for $5 at the door.
  • Your all-the-way-completed 50% Challenge projects!
  • If you are participating in the 2017 BOM, the second two blocks
  • If are you participating in Susan M.'s 9 Patch club, the next set of blocks are due
  • If you are going the Nunnery retreat next month, the balance is due (contact Barbara M. if you're unsure of how much you owe)
  • If you were born in January, April, July, or September, you are invited to bring a snack to share (but it's not required!)
  • Bottled water or other nonalcoholic drink

See you all Tuesday!

Hang in there!

Hoping you all have a great week - make sure you hang in there!

Correction to the March 2017 BOM Arrow North

Hi folks. We need to issue a slight correction to the cutting instructions for this month's block of the month, Arrow North.

Woodcut by Jeff Peachey

For the second block, cut each colored rectangle to 3.5" x 5". Updated instructions are available here.

Thank you!
