We spoke of charity options - The pillowcase challenge and the Downy Quilt for Kids are the ones that the board suggested.
No dues will be paid until at least May. We would like to get the guild up and running completely before we ask for dues.
The idea of a quilt retreat was well received. We will look in to location options and report back at a future meeting. We would like to find a nice place that is as affordable as possible.
Homework due for the March meeting:
Make yourself a name badge :) Make it in any way that you would like. Express yourself!
Pizza Box Quilt project...
This is a group project. You will gather together fabric - either 1 yard of one or 1/2 yard each of two to be used as your focal fabrics. You will submit a theme ie trees, wonky log cabins, birds, bento box, whatever you would like. Include a small journal. Put it all inside of a pizza box and it will travel from person to person. Each month, a new person will get your box and will create for you a 10 1/2" block(10" finished) or four 5 1/2" blocks (5" finished) or two 5 1/2 x 10" strips (5x10 finished). When your pizza box is finished traveling, you will get it back, make it in to a wall hanging, table runners, place mats, a lap quilt, etc - whatever you would like to make with them - but please make something and bring it back!
When you get someone else's box of goodies, you will create the required block for them, using the fabric provided as the main fabric. You will need to use some of your own fabrics to supplement it - back ground material, etc. Challenge yourself. Do your best. Most of all have fun with it.
