November Meeting, Show and Tell

Jim Icenhower makes a $500 donation on behalf of All British Car Days

New Blanket Specifications
After much discussion, we now have updated blanket specifications that take into account the needs of our recipient facilities in addition to the types of blankets we receive. The guidelines includes quilts, quilt tops, yarn blankets and fleece.  Get a copy here.

Linus Work Day
Save the date, the next Linus Work Day at Honey Bee Quilt Store will be Saturday, January 8, 1 - 4 pm. Please note the change in time from our usual Work Days. Bring your sewing machine and a friend, quilt kits will be provided!

If you'd like share a demonstration with us at monthly meeting, please contact Jennifer to be added to the calendar.

Blocks for Crayon Quilts

We are still collecting crayon blocks to provide to youth groups and school children.  Blocks need to be made with an 8 1/2" square of muslin with 2 1/2" matching sashing.  Please iron a piece of freezer paper on the back of the muslin to make it easier for the children to color. Please bring finished blocks to the next meeting.

Free Kite Patterns
Chisholm Trail Quilt Guild has been making kite blocks that Becky has been turning into quilts. Look some of these in the Show and Tell Photos. The paper pieced version of the block was design by Jennifer and is available for free on her blog.

Show And Tell

Blankets were shown and donated on November 20, 2010. They are not necessarily being shown by the person that made them. We encourage you to join us at our monthly meeting and participate in Show and Tell at 10 a.m.   A free demo follows.
