Two of our Guild members are certainly super stars! Congratulations Linda McGibbon and Carol Rose for having Blue Birds of Paradise selected as a semi finalist at the AQS Quilt Show in Paducah this year. Well done ladies! The story was in the Tuesday, March 22nd issue of the Midland Daily News (hope the link works!).

When checking out some of the blogs that I follow, I found a link to a project by Moda for the soldiers in Afghanistan. http://www.unitednotions.com/LA_just_one_star.pdf If you would like to take part in this, go to the website and download all the information and the pattern. Sounds like a delightful thing to do for our servicemen. I will make one and get it off this week. You might mention this to your quilting buddies in case they don't get the blog checked out.

The "Wish You Were Here" challenge quilts were revealed last night also and there are photos of them on the slide show. Ditto the mystery quilts - there were three of those there to be shown.
Our upcoming quilt show was discussed and it was stressed that March 21st is the final date you should have your entry forms in to Jean Langrill. If you have not finished your quilt yet but think you might, go ahead and fill out a form and get it to Jean. Then, if it doesn't happen, the form can be pulled. That is much easier than coming at the last minute with the information to be processed. Closer to the show, we will get all of this information up on the blog.
A couple of videos were shown - one on English paper piecing and another on using and understanding color. Both had some very good information.
Lists were out for signing up for the June potluck which is in the planning. Here is information for that event:

Happy Quilting, all you Q2 members.
