Thanks to all who came out in the ghastly weather for February’s guild meeting. We had a great time talking about more of our plans for 2017 as a guild, sharing our monthly UFO finishes, collecting a handful of cool toned color blocks to be made into a charity quilt and even carving out some crafty time to make some cute fabric necklaces!
This was also our first meeting at the Milpitas Police Station and we’re calling it a success! The venue was spacious and even featured a design wall!! 😉 You can catch us there again next month for our meeting on Thursday, March 9 at 7:00pm.
Show and Tell and a continuation of our UFO Program:
You’ll have to forgive our slightly crumpled blocks for January’s “cool toned colored” quilt block challenge. They traveled from their member’s homes through the downpour of rain to be at our meeting tonight. (Aren’t they awesome? 🙌🏼 ) Thanks to all who made it out to our meeting in this crazy rain! Can’t wait to continue collecting blocks to turn into quilts for charity.
Members: If you’d like to contribute a block, you’re still welcome to! We’ll be collecting blocks throughout the year for various quilts that will be sewn together on special Charity Sew Days (dates TBD) and handed off to our charity. The challenge was just to make a quilt block with cool toned colors and which will finish to 10″ when sewn into a quilt (10.5″ when you drop it off with us).
