Lyn B. was the feature for Fav 5. She is soft spoken and sweet. She grew up in Colorado. She has lived in Cache Vally for 11 years. She has moved several times with her husband's employment but she embraces the opportunity to meet new people and make more friends. She collects dolls, pin cushions, and creamware. She loves chocolate. Her favorite holiday is Christmas because she loves to make it magical. She also has fun family activities for the 4th of July. She had a backstage pass (by default) for an Oakridge Boys concert.
In guild Lyn is known for her amazing needlework and embroidery. She has taught smocking and French Embroidery with Martha Pullen.
The favorite place that she has traveled is to Israel.
Her gift was representative of some of her favorite things. Chocolate, fabric, and a pin cushion shaped like a chocolate that she made. Please take the opportunity to get to know sweet Lyn.
Lyn passed the opportunity to Ann H.

Good news or bad news for the block of the month group. All blocks should be completed for the next meeting. Jolene H. will give some border tips.
Friendship quilt: 16 blocks should be completed to exchange at the April meeting.
Quilts of Valor for the next meeting. A gentle reminder to please be accurate with your block sizes. It takes extra time setting the quilt to together if they are not the correct size.
The next blocks are two different stars. Use navy with off white that is tone on tone or small print.
Debi showed two more quilts that are ready for presentation.

plus some orphan blocks

The Row quilts were exchanged one more time. They are very creative and should be fun when they are completed. Notice the smiles as the new row is revealed, but I heard that there is a lot of work and anxiety coming up with these creative additions.
Melanie shared some background information on 30's fabric. Quild members brought some examples of quilts with 30's fabric.
