For those of you who missed it - we had a very nice birthday night! Our tables were decorated with a fabric flag under a vase of fresh garden flowers. A big thank you to Missy Carpenter for getting the "birthday" cake donated! It was a marvelously flavored cake and very moist. It was a Neapolitan cake which means we had our choice of chocolate, vanilla or strawberry. And yes, there were bits of strawberry in that section.
We had 5, yes I said 5, members of the UFO Challenge turn in a total of 22 quilts finished. The drawing winners for the evening were Cindy Green who got a dinner at Hula's and Frances Perata who got needles, thread & fabric from Rabbit Hole Quilt Shop. How are your UFOs coming? We are slowly getting that number of over 600 quilts turned in whittled down. Cathryn Hepburn & Frances Perata each gave a brief encouraging talk explaining how they are getting theirs done. Cathryn said she set a goal of getting them done and keeps that in mind. Frances said she's retired and has nothing else to do - this got a big laugh from the members present.
We learned that the two classes that will be taught by Thom Atkins are both full with waiting lists. This is a very good sign for our quilt guild. Congratulations to the members who signed up making this happen!
Our next meeting in August will be a regular meeting. Hope to see you there!
