CHAIRMAN FOR RECEPTION..............CARLA FORMEL
PROGRAM..........................Linda Dawkins did a demo on the X Block. Several quilts made with this block was shown by Linda, Colleen,& Mary. Discussion on our guild doing this class will be brought up at the next meeting.
MYSTERY QUILT................Last clues were handed out by Watana and she made a suggestion for the next project to make blocks to depict a song. She will have a list of songs to choose from at the next meeting. The group really liked this idea. Background will not be allowed to be black, but you will have to have some black in your block. The list of songs will be posted at the RAC for the next meeting. When you arrive, line up and put your name by a song to reserve that title for you. You will not use that title on your block, but will put your name on your block. So be on time to get more choices. These block will be turned into a guild quilt. There will not be judging so have fun and do your best.
Colleen showed the articles and book her daughter in law had published.
Business meeting was dismissed as the blessing was offered for the delicious meal enjoyed by all !
