Okay, first - there are openings in the Thom Atkins classes. See one of the Bettys to sign up. If you are not a guild member and wish to take one of these classes, please send us an email and it will be forwarded to one of our workshop sign up folks.
Now for the fun stuff! We are still "knocking off" quilts from our UFO Challenge listings. At our August 2nd meeting, our members crossed off (completed) 20 more quilts. You should see some of these quilts - they run a very wide gamut of styles, sizes and patterns. Some have been hanging around their owner's quilting room for years. Some are more recent. Some are from classes, some from books, some from a magazine, some from a pattern "I just liked and picked up back in.......". Marilyn Knox won the evening prize (goodies bag) from Morning Star for having finished the most this past month. Frances Perata won a goodies bag from Debbie's Quilt Shop for having at least one completed this month.
Let's see, if we start tallying up how many quilts have been finished, we should hopefully all be at least half way done with our list. Maybe next month, we can put a grand total up for you to see how well we are doing.
See you at our guild meeting Sept. 6th. We will be turning in our paint chip challenge quilts. They will all be 24 inches square with bindings, labels, and hanging sleeves. They should be the talk of the guild when we show them off in October! Is yours ready?
