May Meeting Notes

Willow River Piecemaker’s Quilt Guild Meeting Minutes for May 11th, 2017

May’s meeting was mainly the new project from Hope and Barb called Sewing Bee Contest.  Teams were formed and quilts were made.  Some great projects were made in one short evening.  Super fun project and hopefully you made it to A Little Piece of Mind to vote for the best quilt of the evening’s project.  Winner’s to be announced at the June meeting and prizes awarded, too.  

The FarmGirl Vintage block of the month will start in June.  Pam is planning on doing all 48 blocks so there was a sign up for her group if interested.  I am attaching the names of the blocks for her project.  Pam’s group will be doing 4 blocks per month with 1 prize drawing for each month if all 4 blocks are completed.  Bridge and & Mary will be leading another group doing a different version from the same FarmGirl Vintage book.  Please talk to Bridget and Mary about their ideas.  

January’s Retreat will have a movie theme with pj’s and popcorn.  

June’s meeting is this week Thursday the 8th.  It is potluck at Linda Andert’s home.  Please bring a lawn chair and a dish to pass.  I will be attaching a map from Linda along with the email for directions to her home.  
There will be show and tell at this meeting.  And the Barn quilt project will be starting.  This will probably take more than a couple of get together’s for the different steps.  Please be in contact with Linda.  

The upcoming July meeting will be the Cathedral Windows Demonstration.  Erica Plank will be the speaker.  The meeting will be at St. Luke’s Church at 6:30 pm.  Hostess is Linda Justmann.  We could probably use another person to help Linda, not sure if there someone else signed up since my list or not.  Show and Tell will be Cathedral Window quilts, wall hangings, pillows, etc.
