December meeting

The December meeting was held with ten members present.
Members donated toys for the "Toys for Christmas" program.
Christmas quilts were shared along with Christmas gifts members have made
(quilts, wall hangings, journals)
Old business:
  • Debbie E. brought the last row quilt top that is completed.
  • Drawing will be at January meeting with all row quilts present.
  • Quilts of Valor - no report from red team, blue team showed a pillowcase they made and quilt is being returned from volunteer long arm quilter. White team's quilt top is completed and they will be requesting a long arm quilter after Christmas.
  • T-shirt designed for quilt group by Porter's prints needs approval.

New Business

  1. Colleen plans to give instuctions for a block of the month for members starting in January. Members will choose their own fabrics.
  2. Joyce from Quilts and other Notions will be scheduled to come to a meeting in February or March.
  3. A trip to Sisters, Oregon for the 35th annual outdoor quilt show held July 9th was discussed. Airfare from Des Moines to Portland, Oregon, hotel for 5 nights, car rental, 9 quilt shops, lots of fun -- priceless. Sandy has a tentative itinerary.

Machine quilting was discussed. Here is a web site of a blogger trying to spend an hour a day machine quilting

Happy Holidays!!
