A Note from Donna


Members, Happy Spring! Hope this lovely weather and all the beautiful blooms have
inspired you to new and creative things. Thank you to all the members that have taken on jobs to make the experience of membership for everyone even better. Members are coming out and enjoying the friendship of working on charity quilts the last Tuesday of the month. I am loving our "Block of the Month Bonanza"; Faith has found interesting, challenging blocks for us to try. I am looking forward to seeing them made in to quilts and other projects at Christmas. Our Hospitality time has become a hit! Thank you to Sue Marlette for keeping it organized, getting to meetings early and setting up. A great time to catch up with fellow quilters before our meetings. Our Christmas party is already being planned! Don't forget to bring new or gently used items in for Donna Compton & Rachel Wessel to use for our Chinese Auction. We want EVERYONE to be coming home with a basket that night. As we reach 50 members!! I am looking forward to expanding our activities. We want there to be something for every member to be excited about. Please let me know if you have an idea or would like to inspire or participate on a committee with the guild. The only bad idea is the one not shared!!

Belinda Leach presented Color Theory in Quiltmaking, a great program on color and use of the color wheel when planning fabric combinations. Color wheels were distributed to all guild members who later had the opportunity to practice putting together color options from the samples brought. Great job Belinda!
