April 16, 2015  Guild meeting minutes

President Cindy Gerber-Chavez and President-Elect Vivian Blotter were absent so Michelle Stay, secretary welcomed all to the meeting. She thanked everyone who came to the sew-in to help Emily Bailey make quilts for her Happy Chemo project. She reminded everyone to pay the $1 or $2 to the center for letting us meet there every month.We passed around a list for people to sign up if they wanted to purchase the Roxanne’s Glue bottle that Cindy G-C can get for a cheaper price. She used it for the demonstration on how she does machine binding on her quilts. Michelle will get the list to Cindy.Our Treasurer Lorri Bashien texted in a report that we made $371.50 at our National Quilt Day table and $110  from the mini quilts/bags.

Our UQG Rep. Sandra John told us about the green fat quarters the UQG is selling. They are a fundraiser for the cause of heart disease research into medicines and factors of the heart. The fq’s are $5. The project needs to be 40 inches by 40 inches or smaller. It needs to contain a recognizable piece of the purchased fabric, at least one leaf and some embellishment. She also told us about the Silver Thimble Award nominations and the beginning quilter scholarship for Quilt Fest.

Cindy Hutchison thanked those who came to her sew-in for her charity quilts on April 15th and reminded us she has another one on April 22. She also said if we wanted we could make a quilt on our own for her. It needs to be either twin size (72x90) or crib size (45x60). They also could use some receiving blanket size.

Nickey Greene was not at our meeting but we talked about her “I heard it on vinyl” challenge. We are supposed to make a quilt or other project based on a song we remember from our past on vinyl records. It can be any size and it will be due in June at our summer party.

Denise Thalman passed out the patterns for our Easter row quilt. She asked us to do the easiest row (the eggs) and cut all the backgrounds for our first assignment. Due next month.Joan Jensen collected the fabric from all the exchange participants. She and Patsy divided them up and returned them to
us. They reminded us all to bring 11 fat eighths of fabric (9x22 inches) so the exchange would be easier to figure out. We will be doing this for 4 more months.Ruth Davis told us that the star block exchange has been postponed until May. These need to be 9 inch (finished size) blocks. White background only and bright colors for the star. We can make any block we want. We had one extra person join the list so we each need to make 13 blocks – 12 for the exchange and one to donate for a quilt for the senior center where we have our meetings. She also told us anyone who wants to can make one for the senior center quilt only. These are due at the May meeting.

Patsy Shelton said that HMQS needs more quilts for the show. We can enter them online at The deadline has been extended to April 25th. Patsy said she can take our quilts with her when she goes at the beginning of that week. She needs to have them by the end of April.

A lady from the Senior Center came into our meeting and asked us if we thought we could make a quilt for a fundraiser at Autumn Glow in May. She would get us more details soon. After some discussion we decided that one of us probably has a quilt top finished that we could donate for that and one of us would quilt it. So we told her we could do it.

We had a discussion about what teachers we would like to come to our guild and what techniques we would like to learn. Some people mentioned were Cheryl Phillips – mariners compass, Judy Neimeyer techniques (Karen at Elaine’s Quilt Shop is a certified teacher for her stuff), Josephine Kessler who is a local teacher that does great techniques.

Nothing was decided so this discussion will continue next month.

Karen Carter has the OTT light for March. UFO #10 is due next meeting.

Next meeting will be Thursday May 21st at 1:00 pm. The sew-in for May will be to make Happy Chemo quilts for Emily

Bailey’s charity.  It will start at 10:00 am. Emily said we can just come and sew or cut or iron because she will have all the supplies there for us.

    There is nothing like a good friend to search out a new fabric store in town, or finding the perfect bargain on that fabric you have been looking for.
