I will be scheduling another meeting in August so we can update everyone in September. Hope you are all working on your 16 x 24 inch raffle quilts. I have made one. I also made another one, however, you know how you start an appliqué using a bigger background than the piece will be? Yes, I did that but it was way bigger than I needed. Too big for the raffle. Oh, man! I will show you in September.
It's time to start planning for next year's Getaway. We'll be gathering again at the Amish View Inn and Suites from February 15 until February 19. There will be a $3.00 increase in the room rate per night. As in the past registration will be on a first come, first served basis and will be accepted at the September meeting. More information to come as we get closer to September. We're looking forward to another fun time!
