The 2015 Magnolia Ultimate Challenge quilts are due at our February 14 meeting. All required paperwork for the Ultimate Challenge needs to be completed and turned in at the same time. We are looking forward to seeing all of the beautiful work!
We have changed our WIP list back to a UFO list for 2015 and it was decided for every project completed (up to 6 for the year) your name will go into the hat to draw out the 2 winners. If you have bed size quilts to add to your list, please specify whether it is to complete just the top or complete the entire quilt. If you want to participate, turn in your list at the February meeting, along with your $6. At our December meeting, we will draw 2 names to see who gets to split the UFO pot.
We have finalized the dates for our National teacher classes and the Flavin Glover (Log Cabin Patchwork Houses) is scheduled for March 28 with a class limit of 25 participants. Our second class is the Susan Cleveland class (Happy Daisy) scheduled for November 14 with a class limit of 20 participants. Please have your $25 class fee at the February14 meeting. You must be a current (paid membership) to sign up for these classes. To ensure everyone gets an opportunity to attend at least one class, please rank your first and second choice for the classes. Attendance will be limited to one class unless there is not enough signed up for each class.
We have set our lunch time for 11:45. You can bring a brown bag lunch or order from the Coffee House on 5th prior to the meeting and she will deliver at 11:45. Please let her know you are with PTQ. A new Thai restaurant has opened next to the RAC and will be open on Saturdays as well.
Lauren discussed the Annual Calendar for PTQ. It was decided to try something a little different and offer some skills building demos throughout the year to help us develop ourselves as quilters. Please see the PTQ website for more details. Our February 28 Sit and Sew will have a Basics Workshop for those that want to learn a bit more about some basic quilt making techniques.
Mary Ann talked about the new Waverly fabrics coming in to Walmart. These are good quality quilting fabrics at a very good price. She invited everyone to come and check them out.
