December Meeting Recap

Hi all! I promise I'll be back with more frequent posts after Christmas is over!

Announcements:
  • We will vote for new officers at the January meeting. All positions have volunteers, so, yay!
  • You can still register for QuiltCon (February 21-24 in Austin, TX).
  • Let Jessica Levitt know if you would like to sew up some of the charity blocks to make a large lap quilt - she can bring them to the January meeting, too.
  • We handed out fabric for the Madrona Road Challenge! See below in January meeting... and another post coming here soon.
Demo:
We had a lesson on Paper Piecing with Robin. She showed us the process of basic paper piecing and stopped at each stage to explain, with props. Thanks, Robin (from a quilter who needs to try paper piecing!)

Spotlight: Laura N. (who really, really shouldn't move!) (pictures and explanation to follow, when I get them!)

Challenge:
We shared handmade gifts for the holidays. Many had at least one to share... even those who have sworn off making handmade gifts *coughJessicacough* :)

JANUARY MEETING
Tuesday, January 8, 2013, 7-9:30 pm, Pennington Quilt Works in Pennington, NJ
  • Secret Quilter gift exchange due - bring your gift wrapped but also in a bag, so it stays secret!
  • January/Madrona Road Challenge - you can bring your piece to share for this meeting, or in February. Our challenge is "details" - whatever that means to you. *You can use the given Madrona Road fabric and solids only!
  • Spotlight on Myra C.
Thanks!
Jess S.
