Reminder that the meeting for October has been changed to October 3.

Judy is making two day trips to the Pineburg Hattisburg Quilt show.  See her if you are interested in riding with her.  There is a fee to attend and  some meetings there may have a small additional charge.  There are normally lots of vendors.

Judy also has two slots for staying in her room for the MQA meeting in October.

Judy and Julia reported on the quilting retreat.  While attendance was small the company was great and everyone got a lot done. 
Do we want to think about if we want to keep a hard copy of the pictures and minutes since we have the blog? Discussion ensued.  Point was brought out about news reports.  Suggested that we keep photos of group projects.  No decision was made.

Christmas Party:  Consider hosting the meeting. 

Reminder that if you are not going to the MQA Fall gathering to please come work on the quilt projects.

Reminder that entries in the Lowndes County Fair must be brought Monday 9/20 between 3 and 6 by the person entering.  Fair ends on Saturday.  

Wantana is willing to teach how to make a tube quilt.  Bring a square ruler and a triangle, all cutting supplies.  Three colors of coordinating fabrics.  Cut strips, so you need about a yard of each.  She is going to do that on the Oct. 16 day.  

Carolina Lily is moving to the coast, so she is only open the week of Oct 18.  Quilting books are buy one get one free.  The lady is willing to give us a discount if about 10 or 15 of us are planning to go.  Please contact me by email if you are planning to go, so we can tell her if we have enough to get a discount.

Block of the Month
Barbara Walker's Christmas Blocks
Sue Skipper's Hunter star Blocks
Elba Kellum wants a block that looks like the various Halloween icons. For example a witch that looks like a witch, no stars or nine patches. Your block can be any size you want. I googled quilt blocks Halloween and found a number of things for inspiration.   Some ideas could be cats, ghosts, pumpkins, witches, bats, haunted house, bare trees.
