Next day, Ann taught a class on this concept. Fibonacci--I had heard of it but had no idea what it was. I am still not quite sure how it works, but from the way the pieces made by the class attendees turned out - I am sure you will agree it works! And it is not difficult. Quite a few of the girls got their pieces finished. Some of us did not, but close enough that it won't take much to wind them up. I am going to post pictures I took at the class. Will not try to put names to all of them since I do not have names and faces of some of our newer members in my old mind yet, but I promise I eventually will! It was so good to see the newer Q2 members participate and I hope you had a good time. You should come to Sit and Sew next week - I am sure you will like it and it's such a good way to get acquainted!!

Check for more information at the top of the page under "Meetings".
Ann Simanskey, one of the owners Park Bench, a popular place for quilters, will be our guest speaker. On Tuesday, Ann will teach a class on "Piecing Quilt Blocks Using Fibonacci Numbers" - I think I have heard of it but don't know what it is. For sure, never to old to learn something new. I have my fabric and am looking forward to a great time. The class is at Our Reedemer Church.
Also want to remind you that Sit and Sew will be next Tuesday, October 16th, from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm, at Chapel Lane Church. The information is on the left sidebar. What a great way to get acquainted with other Q2 members. Very informal, bring your projects, machines, hand sewing, etc., whatever your need to get work on and enjoy time with a great group of quilters. Lunch is whatever you wish--some bring a lunch along and others go out to eat. You are welcome to do either. A small donation is taken for the use of the room.
Hope to see you at the meeting, the class and Sit and Sew!!

Carol Jaeger won the September door prize which was furnished by Elaine Crewes. Carol and Monty Graham brought along their wonderful Featherweight machine collection and we learned so much about those wonderful sought after machines. I especially loved the tiny little toy sewing machines.
There will be another fun retreat at the Springs October 29 - November 1st. The cost is $191.00. If you are interested, contact Linda McGibbon. As I understand it, these are absolutely wonderful and a good, productive time is had by all who attend.
Fran Galke talked about the annual quilt show to be held April 26 - 28, 2013. Information on a Round Robin was given by Nancy Wyse. More information will be forthcoming via the listserve.
REMINDER: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 IS SIT AND SEW!!!!!! Held at Chapel Lane Presbyterian Church, 5501 Jefferson Avenue from 10:00 to 3:00. Bring your sewing machine or hand sewing and spend time with your quilting friends. Either bring a lunch or join the lazy gals who go out to eat. It is a lot of fun and such a wonderful way to get to know each other. The meetings are fun but hard to get around to get acquainted. Come over to Chapel Lane - I am sure you will enjoy it. A small donation is given by each one in attendance to go toward expenses for use of the room.
The little drawing at the top of the post is one I received in an e-mail from one of the great gals that I follow via her blog. Here name is Carolyn Lee Hosier and you can check out her blog at http://leeprairiedesigns.blogspot.com/. She does some delightful drawings and her work is lovely. We have followed each other for quite a while now. Blogging is really a lot of fun and good cyber friends are made, too.
Hope to see you at Sit and Sew!!

Be sure to bring along the projects you have been working on through the summer break - should be a great show and tell.
Bring along some money to buy chances on the monthly door prize, also. I'm sure the meeting will be chock full of news about coming projects and events. See you there!!
