There is a lot to share this month - browse this home page and "read all about it!"

Don't forget to buy your Holiday Party dinner ticket from Janet Gouveia!

At this year's holiday party in December, you are invited to show the results of a challenge.  How enter this challenge?  Draw a mystery block out of a bag that Janet Gouveia has put together... take a picture of it... and do something with your block!  You can take the block apart and use the fabric in it to make something else.  You can add more blocks to the one you chose and make it into something new.  You can put borders around the block.  Get the idea?  You can do anything you want with your block!  Bring it back to the holiday party where members will decide who should receive a wonderful surprise.   Check the newsletter for details and join in the fun!

And don't forget to buy your Holiday Party dinner ticket!

Lottery Blocks  
There is no December lottery block... the January lottery block is the Cowboy Boot block. 
For instructions on making the boot block, click here.   
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. 
The UFO Club challenge is finished, but Lecia Majewski will be starting a new one in January.  Stay tuned for further information.

If you wish to join the Roosting Nested Goose challenge, it's never too late.  Some guild members have joined in finishing their roosting Nested Goose quilt tops, made in Nancy Amidon's Prepared Edge Master Class, by adding new borders.  The goal is to finish the Nested Goose quilt blocks, add specified (below) borders, and finish the quilts for a special exhibit at the 2016 quilt show.

If you don't have a nesting goose block, use any block of your choice and add borders in the following order:   
1.  Flying geese
2.   Add a block of your choice:  stars, triangles, pinwheels, or just a cornerstone square, etc.
3.   Add a block with squares in it:  checkerboards, four-patches, squares on point, a cornerstone square, square-in-squares... or whatever you decide!
4.  Add a border with applique in it:  it can be as simple as an appliqued circle in each corner - or swags, vines... whatever you wish!

It will be FUN to see what happens with this; we have so many creative members! 

Workshops can give you new techniques, new knowledge, and new inspiration - you may be surprised at what YOU can do!  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.
