It's not too late to sign up for the wonderful Fall retreat at Round Top!  The Fall Retreat starts Thursday, September 10, at 2:00 PM and ends Sunday, September 14, at noon.  The total cost of the retreat is $220 which includes 3 nights and 5 meals.  Check out past newsletters for details; Tonda Helm or Diane Grafton are looking forward to another wonderful retreat with all of you -- if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact them!

Lottery Blocks  
The September lottery block is a Shooting Star block, made with bright tone-on-tone star points and an off-white/beige background fabric.  For this month's block directions, 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. 
Oh my goodness - our UFO Club challenge is incredible, with tons of show-and-share quilts at each meeting!  Talk to Lecia Majewski about how to you can join in and get your quilts out of the closet!  This year's challenge ends In November when all of the entry fees (fat quarters!) will be split among those who have accomplished their goals.

Is Your Goose Cooked?
If you were at the July meeting, you saw some of the partially finished roosting Nested Goose quilt tops.  Bring yours, with any new additions, to the September meeting!

Those who wish to participate can use their Nesting Goose block from the Prepared
Edge Applique Master Class with Nancy Amidon -- or any other block -- and start adding borders in this order:
1.  Flying geese
2.   Add a block of your choice:  stars, half-square triangles, pinwheels, or even just a cornerstone square
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.
