A photo collage of the quilts that went to Joplin was available for viewing and should be at the next meeting.….we have more leaving for Alabama (Bama Bound Quilts) Saturday July 23. I do not have the final count on those but I am certain we can get that for the August meeting.
The article in The View regarding us working in the Library on Quilts for Joplin has brought some interest and we have been given fabric, from a couple of sources, some of which we have put towards more LUV Quilts and some that will be put on the Ways and Means table. There is cotton and wool and other fabrics – we decided each of us has other projects that may take fabrics of a different property than cotton sooooo you now have the opportunity to purchase (inexpensively I might add) different types. Therefore you may want to get to the meeting early enough to do a bit of shopping.
Advertisement time, we have available mugs (cups) insulated with stainless steel inside red with stars and pretty green pens with the name of our guild – check them out help fund your favorite Quilt Guild - we (that ‘we’ includes you too) are your favorite guild right?
Our program for August is a History of the Log Cabin Quilt with our own Katya Holen taking us thru time and how it influenced the Log Cabin. It will be interesting to hear how the Log Cabin has progressed thru and because of history.
See ya’ at the meeting, Monday, the 1st of August 2011, at Gabby’s Diner & Catering doors are open at 6:30 p.m.
