October 2012 Meeting Highlights

There were 27 enthusiastic ladies in attendance at our October meeting.

 The meeting began with the donation of the "Ocean Serenade" quilt to the St Paul's Ladies Auxiliary Executive.  The quilt will be used in a fundraising raffle.  The ladies were thrilled to receive the quilt.  Thank you to Karen P. for the quilting and Gloria N for the label and for the many hands that pieced a block or helped to assemble the quilt top.  A beautiful result from a team effort.

 Our next UFO day is this Saturday October 13th at the WAC.  Hope to see many people out for a fun day of sewing, laughter and learning.  Upcoming UFO days are: October 27 (Ochre River) and November 24th (WAC).

Five Artist's trading cards were returned for the "What's in Your Heart?" Quilting Arts Magazine Challenge.  Dawn will send them away.  We look forward to see what is received in return!

We had 22 pairs of ice-cream cone blocks turned in.  They lucky winner of the draw for half of the blocks was Pat Milburn.

Our new block is the Split Leaf block to be made in Autumn colors.  Please contact Lori if you require the pattern or have any questions.

The new Challenge kits for 2012/2013 were sold at the meeting.  All 24 kits were snatched up.  These are the fabrics for this year.  The challenge was issued for everyone to try something new to them.  Can't wait to see all the completed projects in May.

Dawn P.  gave a thread painting demonstration.  Don't forget that Dawn still has a couple of spots left in her Art quilt workshop happening Nov.24.  Our last blog post contains all the info you need.

I will post all the wonderful Show and Tell in a separate post.
