April Meeting

Friends, thanks for so much fun in April. I hope you are continuing to make new friends and feel like you have a place here each month.

For those of you who are participating in the large floral swap, Anna collected them on Saturday and will stack & swap and bring cute bundles to our May meeting.

May's meeting is back to the regularly scheduled 3rd Saturday.

May 14 will be this session's Open Sew day, free to members. This is not an after class Sew Day, so make a note of the date and let one of us know you want to come if you didn't get to sign up already.

May 17-18 is our Kathy Doughty Workshop & Lecture/Dinner/Book Signing. Visit for more information and to purchase tickets. We will not be having QuiltBliss in 2016 so this is your only chance to have fun with us retreat-style!

Also as a side note, some of my camera's photos were corrupted somehow and I had a hard time getting anything edited and online this time. I know I wasn't able to save all of them, so if your quilt isn't in the Show and Tell feed on flickr, please know it's not personal, it's just Estrogen.

See you all in May!

February 2016 Meeting in Review

What fun this group is! I appreciate all of you being in our big picture this morning, and always. For those of us who were gone this month, you were definitely missed. Be sure to get your copy of our slideshow next month. I hope everyone felt like the slideshow inspired them to either finish something or start something new. I know I was! I've got medallions on my mind again . . .

A reminder that next month we will be reviewing Sessions 1-3, so if you have any quilts from the Strips, Bricks or 75 Quilt era, please bring them in addition to whatever you've been doing lately. We will again have more giveaways to celebrate our 10th anniversary.

One more month to sign up for the large floral fabric swap this month. This session you will 1) buy 4 continuous yards - all the same fabric 2) cut it into 16 fat quarters and 3) bring it all to April's meeting. Anna will shuffle and you will get 16 different fat quarters back in May's meeting.

Anna will be doing the star paper piecing class Mar 5 ($10 for members, plus an optional kit fee). You will need to contact her to join at this point. Sew Day (free for members) will be May 14, sign up next class for this if you'd like.

Here are the 3 quilts done out of last session's swap blocks. I'm loving seeing what everyone has done. Please keep putting them together and sharing with all of us!

See you next month!
