Recap of 02/15/13 Meeting

Every meeting seems to be special, but this one really took the cake!  Check out these photos of the tops and quilts that were turned in at the meeting:

never make this kind of progress without them.
A BIG thank-you to each and every one of you!!  ©©©

We had two Quilts of Valor awarded during our meeting.  If you missed the  blog post about that, you can read all about it [link].

"    We sewed borders to tops,

"    We sent 4 more quilt tops out to be longarm quilted,

"    We sewed lots of bindings to quilts and others sewed them down by hand,

"    We cut lots and lots of blocks and borders, and

"    We made up block kits for volunteers to check out (gotta love those volunteers that are signing these out and keeping us supplied with these blocks for quilt tops!).

Our thanks go to Maria and Linda for bringing in sweatshirts in lots of different colors with  Wartime Quilter plus an eagle or support-our-troops ribbons embroidered on them.
Besides being warm at the right time here in Florida (where’d that cold snap come from anyway?), these will advertise our quilting efforts nicely!

We welcome new members every month.  This is Suzanne being introduced to the group by Sharon:
Welcome, Suzanne (r)!
Don’t worry if you had to miss this meeting – we’ll be looking for you next month – and there is still plenty to do!  We will be having a special quilt-as-you-go technique demonstrated, in addition to some regular sewing and cutting, so you will want to plan to be there.  More info on that will be posted closer to the next meeting time.

Mark those calendars right now for Friday, March 15th, from 10 – 2:00.
