February Guild

Girls from the FFA group.  We are making 27 twin size quilts for the group so they can tie them.  Once they are tied they are going to be given to the Road Home ( a homeless shelter).  They all need to be to Debbie Proctor by THIS Friday.
 
Here is the next blocks we are doing this month.  Pick one of the 6 or do as many as you want.  Each one completed you get 2 owl bucks.  These blocks are found
Timpi doing "Who's Who"  Kami was one of the 4 spot lighted.

                   She washes her quiltes before they are photographed because they photograph better.

Retreat MArch 8-9 @ The Homestead
Here are what the 2 options for the drunkers path at retreat look like.  The red and white one you need 1/2 yard of 2 fabrics.  For the one on the left you need a charm pack.  These will be fun to make.

Also for the design challenge that Sally is going to show us how to start at the retreat you need (4) 9x11 or bigger fabrics.  You want (2) light and (2) dark fabrics.  You want lots of contrast.  Sally is going to show us how to do a 1/2 square triangle method.  We are going to make blocks and then will exchange and then do another step.  This is all I know about it so far.  The design challenge will be due in October.

I loved all of the snowmen! It was so much fun to see all of their little personalities. :)

Thanks everyone who volunteered to get the quilts put together for the FFA. They are coming in and look great! I will get these to them and they will get them started. Those that still need to get them in can drop them off at my house or the Extension office or the High School. Just let me know so I can check off your name. Debbie

I can't believe it, but I finally found out how to comment on the blog. I'm excited about the retreat and spending time with all of you. Just have to get my supplies together. Then I'm ready.
