Q2 March Meeting

Last night Q2 met for a jampacked March meeting that tied up the threads from February that the snow unraveled. Here we see Nancy, our president, holding her secret valentine and behind her some of the other members with their pretty presents. A double door prize and fat quarter drawing was held - and I believe I am finally off the hook for winning too many things. From where I sat, it seems that Nancy W. walked off with three of the drawings. Good for you, Nancy! Jean won the potholders I made for commenting on the blog between the January and February meetings and Marion gets the fat quarter for being the first to comment.

The round robins were shown and returned to their original makers for being assembled and shown in the quilt show, either quilted or not. A great group of tops - they will be lovely wall hangings.

Signups were being held for a class by Caroline Freeman that sounds like super fun. It is a fusing class and you can see the information on the left sidebar. As I understand it, there will be no need to bring your sewing machine unless you are superfast with your cutting and fusing skills. That always suits me to a tee to leave my heavy little old friend home. She will be there for me when I am ready to finish the piece with the necessary sewing.

The featured speaker was Margaret Rouleau from Bay City, a certified AQS quilt appraiser. She gave a very informative talk and then did appraisals on two quilts. I did not get a picture and I apologize for that.

Our quilt show is getting closer - don't forget to get the papers made out for your entries and bring them to the April meeting. The girls need time to get everything together in the way of paper work and that does take a goodly amount of work.

Keep in mind that next Tuesday, March 16, will be Sit and Sew. See you there!
