Projects for the coming year
Modern Friendship Raspberry Kiss
The backgrounds will be low volume neutrals.
Challenge Project, Julie H.
Here a couple of examples of past Challenge projects:
We will not be doing Block Jack every month. This month is a airplane which is foundation pieced. Do not trim the blocks after they are completed.
Block jack means that you complete the block and bring it to the next guild meeting. The names of everyone who made a block are entered into a drawing and the winner gets all of the blocks.

The quilts are using Farm Girl Vintage, by Lori Holt

OCD presented by Jolene H.
This project is a two year project which will come from the book "Nearly Insane"
Participants must purchase the book. The fee for the templates for the paper pieced blocks is $30. Each block will be graphed and ready for use.
The goal is complete 5 blocks per month.
Jolene held a workshop after guild on foundation piecing.

Block of the Month, Cheryl C.
The block of the month is a sewing basket. Cheryl prefers to use light Heat and Bond on the back of her wool appliqué to secure the edges.
Sandy S. was featured for Fav 5 this month. She was a super trooper because she is still recovering from knee replacement less than 1 month ago. I think she also casually mentioned that she moved and had 3 weddings in the last year.

"Add a quarter ruler" for paper piecing
The ruler has a ridge for the 1/4 inch marking. Sorry I don't remember the brand or name.
Quilts of Valor
Debi and Alice shared information on several presentations that were made over the summer.
Richard McClean and his wife Linda attended. It was wonderful to meet them. When Debi asked to borrow the quilt to show the guild he resounded "This is my quilt" and if it goes I go. So we were delighted to have him attend. It was great to hear a little of his story. His wife is a quilter.
