PUEBLO WEST QUILTERS GUILD NEWSLETTER FOR OCTOBER 1, 2012
Website: pueblo-west-quilters.blogspot.com / email:email@example.com
Fall is in the air, the trees are changing colors. And did you get
inspired by Susie’s and Becky’s tools demos to try a new project?
Always more ideas and tools to help us be creative.
Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the thank you “Purple and
Pink By Request” quilt for Ben and Gabby presented to them at the Sept
10 meeting. They are very appreciative of our gift.
We’ve collected lots of STEP-UP challenge forms so I know our Nov
meeting is going to be quite the awesome Quilt Show, especially with
all the Paint Chip Monogram challenge results to display too. It’s not
too late to still participate in these activities. And encourage all
your friend to come to that meeting.
PLEASE, please, consider “stepping up” for the PWQ Executive Board for
2013. Our club is so great because of the members and we do want to
keep it going. It can be lots of fun to work with your quilting
friends to accomplish this. Nominating committee members (Judy
Visalli, Janet Flick or Chris Magan) will be calling to accept your
volunteering for one of the board positions! Thank you.
The Christmas Party committee has things well under way for a fun and
joyous time on Dec. 3rd. We will be meeting at our usual place,
Gabby’s Diner, and dinner will be $8.00 - PWQ members only. The
balance of the dinner costs will be paid by the PWQ treasury. If you
wish to participate in the gift exchange, it is a table runner kit,
made by you from your stash. Lots of free table runner patterns are
available on the internet, or you can make your own pattern or
purchase a pattern. Be sure to follow all copyright restrictions when
obtaining a pattern. Updates about the party will follow as they

A NOTE ABOUT PAINT CHIP CHALLENGE**
I have had a lot of questions about the "colors" of the challenge.
Yes you may use more than 3 fabrics as long as the 3 colors you
choose are in that fabric, no other colors.
Example: My colors are, white, pale yellow, and dark green, my
fabric colors are those 3 solids PLUS yellow on white polka dots,
white on yellow polka dots, yellow and white checked, yellow and white
swirled. So I will use white as my background with all the other
colors forming flower petals and stems. I hope this clears up some of
The 3 colors mixed any way you want.
There won't be any quilt police for this so just have fun and match as
close as you can!!!!
