Our March meeting was so fun and informative!!  We had a large number of ladies in attendance.  Debbie Christiansen gave a lesson on needles - little did we know that we knew so little!!!  How to choose the right needle for the project, how to tell when to change it (besides when it breaks!) and that quality does matter!!  Very informative - thanks Debbie!! Merri Shumway showed us how to make a trellis 4 patch.  A cute idea on a traditional block.  Kathy Hurst showed how to get PERFECT half square triangles - it's called "Cake recipes"!  This paper pack comes from Missouri Star Quilts. Everyone was excited about this concept!  One pack was even given as a door prize.   Karen Kartchner and Becky Cochran brought beautiful trays of fruit and vegetables along with dips for our refreshments - very tasty!!  Baby blanket material was passed out to be finished into blankets for the newborns at the hospital.  We are getting a good supply - way to go ladies!! And of course what would a meeting be without show and tell!
