      Snippet of the month:  Quick Quilt Recipes or Time Saving Tips and Tricks--
--Judy shared the "Leaders and Enders" concept.  She places squares for a 4-patch under her needled as a "leader" for string piecing and as an "ender" when the string is completed.  These patches are part of an ongoing set of quilt blocks that will create a quilt.

--Terri H and Lauren shared fabric starching techniques for making quilt borders lie flat before sewing them to the quilt.
Next month’s snippet will be sharing your favorite quilt book.  Go to your bookcase and pull out your favorite quilting book to share with the guild.   Your book might become someone else's new favorite!

       If anyone wants to participate in the challenge block quilt  -MS themed blocks-- and hasn’t purchased a kit yet, please contact Karen A. to get your kit.

     Ernest Sanders contacted Tonya about fabric his wife (who passed away) left. He was trying to find someone who would like it…if interested please feel free to contact him at (662)494-4669.  Please let Tonya know if you will be contacting him.
