April Meeting Huge Success

Quilters from GCQ and the Monticello Quilt Guild gathered Wednesday, April 19th at the Blanding Library (our new meeting place!!)  We were so excited for them to attend.  They brought many quilts to show.  I'm sorry I missed this meeting.  Below are pictures from the night - not necessary in the right order as I fought the blog and finally gave up!!

Kathleen presides over the meeting since all the presidency was out of town!!  Thanks Kathleen!

April meeting location change

The GCQ April meeting will be held at the Blanding Library beginning at 6:00 p.m.  It is sure to be a fun one!  The Monticello Quilters have been invited to come enjoy an evening with us!  Karen from the Cortez Quilt Shop is our special guest.  She will do a show and tell, demonstration and have "goodies" for sale from her shop.  You can never have enough quilting "stuff" so come take advantage of shopping without leaving town!

The 4th of July raffle quilt top is complete and soon to be sent to our amazing long arm artist, Jeri Montella.  It is beautiful - look for the display at Clark's Market beginning in June.  This is our big fundraiser for the year!

I will post pictures of the April meeting next week.  Come join us!
