Library Quilt Update:
- We are taking donations of wonky houses and trees for a quilt to be made to benefit the library.
- We would like the blocks made with a white or a white on white background. The color and size of the houses are up to you. Have fun with them! There are lots of tutorials online on how to make wonky houses.
- The quilts hanging will be swapped out for new ones the first or second week in April. Please consider loaning a quilt or two to be displayed. Repeats are always accepted as well.
- If you would like to sell a quilt, the library suggests a 20% donation if it sells.
- We discussed the possibility of doing a bookshelf quilt on a Sewing Saturday
Charity Quilt Update:
- Deb is going to contact St Judes to find out exact sizes requested as well as if skull fabrics can be used for quilts since they are so popular right now. We are girl fabric heavy. Please consider making some boyish quilt blocks if possible.
- Missouri Star has a skateboard quilt that would be great for boy fabrics. White or white on white backgrounds are great.
- The current block would also be great in more masculine prints.
Madison Station Quilters:
A representative from the MSQ contacted is to see if anyone in our guild would be to come to their March 12 meeting to give a talk on what is modern quilting and show off some quilts if possible. Nobody stepped forward to give a talk. We hope to be invited to do this in the future.
