PTQ November Meeting - 11/15/08

Dear Cynthia Crazypatch,

Our meeting got kicked off with the usual reading of the minutes and the treasurer’s report. We had a visitor, Gidget, who is a friend of Terri’s and we hope becomes a member of the guild next year. The Christmas party is to be at Judy’s house and we are to bring a $15 gift for the dirty Santa and a dish of party food. If you have your signature blocks finished bring them to exchange.

Sharon found a web site which has a helpful lesson on color theory and also helps market original quilt patterns.

Derindia and Mary Ann will have a demo on a fat quarter quilt that they will teach at the Feb. workshop. This is to be a fun fast quilt and with a little preparation you should leave with a complete quilt top.

The January workshop will be a Round-2-it so bring something you have been working on and let's try to finish a few UFO’s. Also remember Jan. starts a new year and we will need to be ready to pay our dues of $15.

The fall gathering is to be Oct. 2 and 3 at the First Methodist Church if that doesn’t conflict with any of the plans of the Church. Lauren will co-ordinate the process of planning the meeting and is asking for help from anyone who is willing to help. C.C. and Christine will be co-chairs of the silent auction during the gathering and they will accept any donations during the year to go toward the auction.

Well that brings to my favorite part of every meeting and that’s show and tell. This meeting C.C. brought her finished maple leaf quilt. Annette brought her cathedral window pillow top that she made with yo-yo’s for the centers and her finished BOM quilt. Sharon brought a small cathedral window she had made some time back and admitted she had been quilting longer than she thought. All that want to help is asked to decorate the tree at the library Sat. after Thanksgiving. The block lottery had 23 blocks and our youngest member Jadea’ won them.

Well I guess that about says it all for this meeting. I hope you can come to the Christmas party cause we miss seeing you so till then keep you stitches small and you stash big.

Hanging by my tale,

Katie O’Possum
