Don’t forget to bring your show and tell.  And bring your sewing along to spend some time in the afternoon working on your latest project.  Maybe your Challenge projects for this year.
Set Up: Laura, Pat, Shirley C, Barb deB

Next Instalment of  Charity Work: Be ready for MARCH 

Idea #1:    If you wish to participate, you would contribute a rectangle block/panel of some sort.  Each round a border would be added all the way around – like a round robin.  These would be made into a quilt.

Idea #2:   Using an orphan block we would add to it until it became a placemat (13″x17″).

In MARCH bring your orphan panel or rectangle/block to guild and the next round will be decided.  Remember to leave a 1/4″ seam allowance around the block/panel.

Possible Charities:

* Meals on Wheels for the placemat (13″x17″)

* Neo Natal Quilts: 30″x30″.  Need a pocket on the back to fit a 4″x6″ photograph
