What are people interested in learning about? Share with Maggie and the board!

Retreats
  • Our Spring retreat in May is full.
  • Next retreat will be in January 2020.
  • March 9th retreat only had one sign-up. (But now has 3.  This sew-in is ON.)
Bag Making
  • We're reviving and old thread about bag making.
  • We're thinking of doing 3 different patterns at 3 different sew-ins, starting with beginner and working up.
  • Maggie will be posting some pattern choices for voting on Facebook.
Shows
  • Our show at the Gerald Ford is finally coming to an end after being delayed by the government shutdown.
  • Maggie's sister's early childhood class got to take a trip to see the quilts.
QuiltCon
  • QuiltCon was enjoyed by the approx. 10 members that went.
  • Our charity quilt is back already. Rossie proposed a sew day to add handwork to the circles in the quilt.
  • Debbie taught, Jude volunteered, the rest of us took classes, saw the show, and ate too much.
Charity
  • Kim brought quilt tops and back ripe for quilting.  There are a bunch of these.  Let's get them done!
  • The idea of doing more quilts to auction was shared.  While our black-based charity quilts are great for getting quilts done, it could be fun to explore more design-focused quilts.
  • For the March meeting, the charity block is the 2x4 quilt.  See Film in the Fridge's instructions here: http://filminthefridge.com/2016/04/07/two-by-four-a-quilt-block-tutorial. Use bright colors, with one light and one dark of the same color.
Library
  • We have a full color digital library!
  • Check with Kim ahead of time if you want to take something out at a meeting.
  • We're cleaning out the library.  Books that haven't gotten circulation will be brought to a meeting and then donated if no one wants them.
Learning
  • Cheryl demonstrated board basting.
  • The technique was based on one pioneered by Sharon Schamber.
Giedra was the member spotlight. Next time it will be Rossie.

Swaps
  • The 2019 Swap list is ready and will be posted soon.
  • March's swap is a block lottery.  Bring a 12x12 Ohio star block. (pattern)
  • Think about a piece of art to use for the Art Spark challenge in April.
  • Sheryl is looking for a group to do a groups quilt to enter in the Toledo Kaleidoscope of Quilts show.
  • We did a pouch swap.
  • Round round was spun round 

    Show and share was amazing as always.
