January 2019 Meeting Review

Karen D. showing off her new hat
[Ed. note: My grandfather always used to say that Christmas lasts all year so he technically had a whole year to give out his presents. So really, I still have 10 months to get this post done, right? Forgive my tardiness...]

We had a lovely kick off for the new year and gifts just kept on coming. Angie N. had several items up for raffle grabs, including several fat 1/8's, won by Shelly N, a quilt rack, won by Andie B., and a hexie quilt, won by Karen D. Congratulations ladies and thank you Elf Angie!

As a reminder for everyone, please remember to sign into the Goeske Center at the terminal in the hallway. Our ability to use the facility for free is dependent on all of us checking in, so please don't forget!

Sara H. also donated a few items, including this lovely ponytail beanie gratefully received and modeled by Karen D.

The Quilt of Valor National Sew Day is Saturday February 2nd from 9am-3pm. Click here for more information.

Elly H. presented the last Block of Month of 2018 (available here) and invited everyone to bring in their completed quilts at the March 2019 meeting.

Elly also reminded us that it's time again for the 50% Challenge - dig out that project that you've been putting off that's halfway done and get it finished, all the way finished. Bring your completed projects to the April 2019 meeting.

Board and Chairpersonships were announced - and we're still looking for a new Nancy to take over Nancy's Nifty Notions! Please contact Jeri or Tami if you can help. We also still need a few people to help take a Mystery Box month - check out the link above and contact Jeri or Tami if you can help.

Our annual Spring Retreat to Vinya de Lestonnac is coming up May 17th-19th and there are still a few spots open. The theme this year is Sippin' and Stitchin' and the cost is $298. Contact Barbara M. to sign up.

February BOM now available

How about this year of Disappearing blocks for our BOM? Kudos to Elly H. for being the BOM dot com!!

As some of you may have noticed, we have only had 11 blocks and with the deadline fast approaching to show off our completed 2018 BOM quilts (or quilt tops, we're not picky), Elly wanted to get our 12th and final block up and available to you as quickly as possible. Yay!

So, here you go, our February block of the month, the Disappearing Friendship Star Pinwheel. Yay! And if you need any of the other BOM patterns, they're all available here.
