Citrus Quilt Donated!

Our Citrus quilt will be going to a home in need soon!  Thank you to all of our members who helped us make this quilt a reality!

Our next challenge will be due in March 2013.  If you would like to participate we are making a quilt of blue stars.  Any star pattern you like and any size block is welcome.  We will find a way to incorporate these into one or many quilts depending on the volume of blocks received.

We hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday with their families.  We will see you all in January!

November Meeting Recap

We had a fun time catching up at the November meeting.

PJ quilted and bound our citrus charity quilt.

PJ included a fun detail in the quilting 'amqg 2012'.

We had 23 blocks turned in for the film noir charity quilt. Carol and Lisa each won a gift certificate.

We laid out the blocks and debated whether to sash them.  We perused the store for options and finally decided that no color or print would do. We we laid out 20 of the blocks in a light/dark pattern.  The last 3 will be on the back.

We discussed ideas for the next charity quilt and opted for stars in blue.  Any size or pattern star block with any shade of blue you want. Blue star blocks will be due in March 2013, so lots of time to get 1 or 5 finished!

Congrats to Krisa! The quilt she made for the Modern Quilt Showcase was featured in the Quilt Scene magazine.

No meeting in December; we will meet again on January 28, 2013.  

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season - we look forward to seeing you in the new year.
