Lottery Blocks  
It is already time to think about making a set of lottery blocks for February! 
Georgia W and Cyndi D are our new lottery block leaders and are still getting up to speed in their new jobs -- so in February, you can turn in the January Boot Block - and / or a Heart block.  Click here for the Boot block directions; click here for the Heart block directions.   
How does the lottery block system work?  Make two blocks.  One is for the lottery; the other is used in the guild's annual auction.  For each two blocks you make, you get  one chance to win all the blocks in the lottery set.  The more you make, the greater your chance to win - and the guild's share of block-sets bring in auction income that helps pay for our programs. 
Want to Finish Some of Your UFOs?
Be inspired to complete your unfinished quilts!  The UFO Club started at the January guild meeting but it is not too late to join.  Bring your UFO Club Registration and Tracking Form and three fat quarters with you to the March meeting, along with a finished quilt top or a quilted quilt.  The Club meets at Gloria Dei at 6:30 pm.  Each month, finish one item on your list... or you will owe another 3 fat quarters.  Do this in the odd months (March, May, July, September, and November) and in November, everyone who has finished all five of their original projects will get to split all of the fat quarters that have been turned in.  Be sure and bring your finished projects for show-and-tell!  Click here to see and print out the Registration form.

Spring Retreat is Just Around the Corner!!!
That's right... the guild's Spring Retreat opens on Wednesday, March 25 and closes on March 29.  Join in the fun and friendship and quilting down on Galveston Island.  For more details and a registration form, click here.  We can't wait to see you there!

Update:  We  are currently "full" but please register if you would like to attend; we often have people drop out due to family and work issues.  We will let you know as soon as a slot opens for you.  Send your registration to Sue or Nancy at the guild post office box.  Thanks!

Is Your Goose Cooked?

Have you finished your Nesting Goose block from the Prepared Edge Applique Master Class with Nancy Amidon?  Do you want to?  Click here to read about a new program the guild is starting -- a "Roosting Goose" project to get everyone's goose finished.  It will be FUN to see what happens with this!


Are you ready to learn precision piecing from a master piecer?  This 3-day workshop will give you all the tips and techniques that a fabulous piecer needs - for only $100.  Jan Krentz is  a superb teacher with patience, experience, and a ton of knowledge.  Check the calendar for details - the workshop will be in June.  Click here for the supply list for the class.  Do not get the supply list from her website; the guild will be providing many of the supplies, so our list is shorter!

Our beautiful new raffle quilt, Whippoorwill Lane, has been unveiled and it is stunning!  You can purchase tickets for this quilt at our local guild meetings.  To see the photo of the quilt, click here.

Community Service Quilts
If you are interested in making a community service quilt, click here to check out our Community Service page.  Scroll down for a list of suggested sizes of quilts.  A multitude of kits are available at each guild meeting for cutting squares, piecing squares, quilting, and/or binding.  You don't have to do everything -- every little bit helps in the making of these heartfelt gifts to people in our community who are dealing with unique challenges.

The February workshop we will host is with Lynn Roddy Brown.  Her classes promises a lot of learning AND a lot of fun from this delightful quilt maker and designer with tons of experience.  Check out all of our upcoming workshops by looking at the guild calendar.  Workshop sign-ups are taken at the Workshop table at guild meetings, or contact Bobbie A.  Sign-ups are considered confirmed only after payment of fees.  Sign up early as slots often fill quickly.
