Kick off for 2011

Rachel kicks off the new year. The theme that she has
chosen for the year is "Time Marches On". This year
during quilt guild we will learn more about the history
of quilting and some of the war eras.

Rachel is putting together a Block of the Month for this year.
This will be the center block of a medallion quilt. If you want to do
the quilt she is giving two options for the center - above is the flower urn or a
simpler block the Puritan Star.
For more information about this quilt go to the guilds website.

Debbie has put together another charity project for us.
At quilt quild she brought 44 quilt kits for us to sew together.
The FFA at the High School is going to tie and donate them.
If you took a kit make sure you have it completed by Feb. meeting.

Tamara is the Retreat Chairperson.
Retreat will be held at the Heber Valley Camp on May 20 and 21.
If you haven't signed up yet be sure to do so at February's meeting.
The cost is $25 for both days at the retreat or $20 if only coming part of the time.
It sounds like it is going to be lots of fun. Don't miss it!!!

Bethany is over the Finishing Bee. If you signed up she will contact you
and tell you what your project to work on this month is. This
is a good motivation to finish up all of those projects.

Don't forget to leave a comment. We all love to hear what you are
thinking. Everyone who leaves a comment will be put into a drawing for fabulous
prizes each month at guild meeting.
Happy Quilting!!!!

I'm really looking forward to this years Quilt Guild Meetings. I think I will learn a lot, including those dreaded "Y" seams.
