GLORIA DEI LUTHERAN CHURCH CRAFT SHOW QUILT
As a guild, we are extremely appreciative that Gloria Dei allows us to use their wonderful facility for our general meetings, as well as for occasional other events.  We have found that there are very few other places where we can meet, and hope that our relationship continues to be such a positive one.  In thanks, each year, the guild contributes a quilt to Gloria Dei that they raffle off as part of their Fall Craft Show.  This year, Virginia Spiers is leading up the making of the quilt and has asked for the rest of the guild to help her.  All you have to do is make some 4-patches and provide some light-colored fabric for background squares.  For detailed instructions, click here.  We hope you will participate in this endeavor.
 
Lottery Blocks  
The March lottery block is a String block.  Sets of these, sewn together, make a gorgeous scrap quilt.  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. 
 

Spring Retreat is ALMOST HERE!!!

Summer Salsa Lone Star Quilt classTHE PRECISION PIECING MASTER CLASS WITH JAN KRENTZ
Are you ready to learn precision piecing from a master piecer?  This 3-day workshop in June 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!
FINISH Your UFOs!
Oh my goodness - we have SO many people signed up to complete UFOs this year; it's amazing!   Fifty-three members have committed to finishing 5 or more UFOs by November - wow!  It's not too late to join the UFO Club.  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.  By March, May, July, September, and November, finish one item on your list... or you will owe another 3 fat quarters.  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.
