Quilting Friends Luncheon Feb 23.

Today's Quilting Friends Luncheon at Kitchen 33 was a good time! We had an amazing quilt show followed by yummy food! Betsy never ceases to amaze us with her quilting - most of these will be quilts for veterans, a couple baby quilts, etc., Kathy A.K.A. Elvis, has finished her coffee quilt for a veteran - last picture. Anyway, enjoy the quilt show and watch for information about next month's luncheon.

The end. 🧵

Quilting Friends Lunch in February, and ideas for March

Quilting Friends are meeting for lunch at Kitchen 33 at 1:00 on Friday, February 23. Bring any projects to share and show. If you can come please let Brenda know by text or voicemail by Wednesday, February 21, so reservations can be made.  
Additionally, Sharon has proposed that for March we take a trip to Millstone Quilt Shop (reproduction fabric and grunge) and have lunch somewhere in that area. So keep this idea in mind!

EQ Program on Saturday

 From Gwendolyn:

Curious about EQ, the quilt design program? Unsure how it works if you have it?

The questions came up at our last lunch out with the suggestion that I do a short program on a Saturday sewing day. So…this Saturday, February 3, I’ll bring my computer so we can work on the basics of EQ, preferably during the morning.

I have the latest version, EQ8, so my home screen will look different from prior versions. But a lot of the basic functions are the same. You won’t need to bring your computer with you, but can if you wish.

First Veteran quilt delivery of 2024

Today I got a call from our coordinator that the VA was out of quilts! I delivered this group of 15 to kick off 2024.

Brenda and I  haven't been able to quilt veterans quilts for a few weeks but Brenda is back in business and is catching up on a few that she has. I have 11 here to quilt and will get started on them in a couple of weeks,  after vacation and after finishing one of my own quilts. Bring any tops and finished quilts that you have to Sewing Days (Feb 2nd and 3rd) or to the February meeting on the 13th. We will turn them around as quickly as possible.
