Revisiting December (Meeting Minutes)

Now that the holiday festivities are well and truly finished and we settle into the January doldrums, its a perfect opportunity to revisit our December guild meeting.  Many of our members took time out of their holiday busy-ness to join guild members for some fun!

Our December meeting was held on December 12.

Nona and Kira had been unable to get together so Nona could give Kira her Anniversary Scrap Swap creation.  Nona made Kira a hexie table runner.  It's pretty clear it was perfect.

Kira and Elaine were also unable to catch up with one another, and while we don't have Elaine's reaction, I think it's safe to say she was thrilled with the machine cover Kira made her.

Kira welcomed new members and visitors, and explained the benefits of membership in the guild and in MQG.  We celebrated two member birthdays with "Happy Birthday" and a Fat Quarter lollipop.

I think it's safe to say that the block lottery blocks were fabulous this month.  Betty Bell was the lucky winner of the 16 house blocks, plus a tree.

Next month's block will be Modern Windows.  The block should be 10.5 inches unfinished and use tone-on-tone white, beige or text for the background and cool colors for the windows.

Elaine explained our ongoing charity Quilts of Honor.  We are always collecting blocks.  One good idea is to make an honor block every time we make a Block Lottery block.  She thanked Jennifer for her consistent support of Quilts of Honor.

With the business of the meeting concluded, members swapped a wonderful collection of handmade ornaments with one another, and several members showed their beautiful handiwork - many of them destined to be Christmas gifts, no doubt.
