February 19, 2015 Guild meeting minutes
President Cindy Gerber-Chavez was unable to attend the meeting this month, so President- Elect Vivian Blotter welcomed all to the meeting.
Our Utah Quilt Guild Rep Sandra John told us the green fabric for the new fundraiser at Quilt Fest will be available next meeting. We will be able to purchase the fabric for $4 and we use it to make a small quilt (40x40 or less.) They will also need to have a leaf embellished somewhere on the quilt. These will be auctioned off at Quilt Fest. The proceeds will go to aid in heart disease research. She told us that the UQG is asking each individual guild to make a red and white quilt to display at Quilt Fest in 2017.
Cindy Hutchison gave us more details about her charity for the year. She is collecting quilts to be donated to various women’s shelters throughout the state. There are quite a few shelters and they need lots of quilts. They need twin size (72x90) and crib size (45x60). We can donate ones we’ve made ourselves and she is holding a couple of sew-ins at K&H Quilt Shoppe in Kaysville. The dates are April 15th and 22nd. She passed around sign-ups to see who was interested. We can bring our own fabric or she will have plenty there. 10 inch squares of print fabrics and 5 ½ inch squares of solid fabrics.
The polka dot challenge items were displayed and everyone voted for their favorites. They were all awesome and the winner was Nickey Greene. She received a $10 gift card.
Denise Thalman collected the money to buy the patterns for the Easter row quilt.
We discussed the upcoming National Quilt Day. Vivian Blotter passed around sign-ups for: the mini quilt sale/auction, the quilt show entries, the make and take table (small needle cases), greeters, and our own guild table. Most of the slots were filled but a few were still open. We are asked to donate 3/8 to ½ inch buttons and felt for the needle cases.
Joan Jensen passed around a sign up for the fabric exchange. We will be exchanging fat eighths of Kim Diehl fabric from March through August.
Jean Powell told us about the Round Robin she wants to do. She gave us some ideas about what we could do and she sent around a sign up to see who was interested and what option was preferred. The sign up will be passed around next month also.
Vivian Blotter has the OTT light for March.
UFO #2 is due next meeting.
Next meeting will be Thursday March 19th at 1:00 pm.
The sew-in will be to make Happy Chemo quilts for Emily’s charity. It will start at 10:00 am. Vivian told us if we had 1 ½ yard pieces of fabric we didn't want we could give them to her to make more quilts for Emily.
