A couple members told us about their favorite notion/gadget. Then several members shared their quilt projects during show and tell. My favorite was a quilt made using Elizabeth Harman's Tokyo Subway Map quilt pattern. I took a photo of it but it turned out blurry. Here's the photo from Elizabeth's Oh, Fransson! website. It's great!
The first swap of the year was announced. Everybody participating will make a 1 1/2" square mini quilt block magnet and bring it to the February meeting. Then each magnet will be assigned a number and everybody participating will draw a number to see which magnet they won. I signed up to take part.
They discussed the guild's participation in the One Million Pillowcase Challenge. Completed pillowcases have to be turned in at the February meeting. They announced a number of prizes they will be giving away to those that participate, including the person who makes the most will get a new iron. Below are the pillowcases I sewed from the three kits I was given at the December meeting. I'm going to make more from my fabric stash.
At the end of the meeting a few attendance prizes were given away. You get a ticket for the drawing if you are wearing a name tag you have sewn. I need to make one of those.
So, I need to get moving with making stuff. Here's my to do list for the February meeting that's in less than two weeks:
- Design and make a mini quilt block magnet.
- Design and make a name tag.
- Sew more pillowcases.
Ready! Set! Go!
