April 24 gathering

We discussed a number of issues:
  • Saundra has been in the hospital; send a card or give her a call if you get the chance
  • More dues were collected
  • Membership cards were discussed, and will be ready by the next meeting
  • Hospitality (bringing food) will occur on a rotating basis; members will have two annual obligations to serve (refer to schedule)
  • June's meeting will be cancelled; we're taking a road trip to a quilt show!
  • Our group quilt is now finished; Cynthia suggested each member sign the quilt back behind the block they contributed, and she would embroider it

  • Joyce took the remaining blue/green blocks to make into a second quilt
  • The decision was made for members to create a quilt using Eleanor Burns' Underground Railroad book; each month we will work on the same block (we will all be creating our own quilts), thus enabling even our beginner members to develop basic quilting skills
  • Carol and Evelyn demonstrated strip piecing for rail fence and two by two blocks
  • We showed our quilts
  • We are thinking of hosting our very own quilt show next February! We certainly have enough quilts...
  • Members present: Carol, Bobbie, Cynthia, Cherry, Adrienne, Narda, Laurel, Lana, Sydney, Alora, Gloria, Evelyn, LaQuita, Joyce
