November Posting

The Holiday season is upon us. Several of us took advantage of our Fall Retreat, that was held on November 14 and 15, to work on some projects that need finishing before Christmas arrives.

The slide show to the right will show some of our members hard at work on theses UFOs or some worked on the aprons and hot pads that were presented. I know that at least one of the aprons made there is a Christmas present so it worked out great.

Those present had an enjoyable time. Good food was enjoyed by all and it was great just to get to stop, relax, eat, then get back to work. Thanks to Suzanne and all those who made our retreat possible.

Our Monthly meeting was held on November 20th. It was "shopping" night. Bittersweet Quilt Shop was there with some of their lovely fabrics and we got to shop before, during and after the meeting. Donna, from the shop, showed us a "Quilt and You Are Done" system for making some quilts we can do on our machines at home.
Drawings were made for door prizes as well as our BOM Fall Tessellation Blocks. Paula was the lucky winner of these and plans to add the other 4 she had already made at home to make 16 blocks total for her project.

Our new BOM was displayed by Coralee which is called "Tall Pine". The background is to be made of tan fabric and the tree can be one or many green shades or prints.

December brings our "Christmas Party" Guild Meeting. It will be on December 18th. If you didn't sign up to bring a food item or forgot what you did sign up for, get with Suzanne. Don't forget your "Mini Quilts" for our gift exchange. No smaller than 12" x 12" and no larger than 18" x 18". See you there.
