March Meeting

Starting with the April 5th meeting, TAGY will meet in the Barling Room, in the basement of the Court House annex building in Cody.  We will continue to meet at 1pm on the first Monday of each month.

Everyone is encouraged to join the Super Quilter Competition at the Yellowstone Quilt Fest on Sunday September 12th, 2010, from 11 am to 3 pm.  Those participating will make small quilts between 12" to 36" per side, amid cheers from those attending the quilt show. For more info, contact Kathy L or Jeanne K.  Also, information will be posted on the YQF web site in the near future.

Photos were handed out to those participating in Linda Jackson's "picture quilt".  Due in June.

A reminder that the Skyline Challenge quilts will be needed by July 1st (latest).  A grant was received from the State Quilt Guild to be used for the black drape fabric and for shipping the display around to various venues.  Kathy L needs our dimensions as soon as we have them.  Height and width, and how many inches down from the top the horizon will be on each side of our quilt.  She needs this info to prepare the black drapes for hanging the quilts, so they will all line up at the horizon.

Legacy Quilt blocks were submitted to Kathy L for the play to be held in Cody this summer.

This year the Capitol Christmas Tree will be from the Bridger-Teton National Forest in Wyoming, and 75 smaller trees will also be provided to Washington DC offices.  Five-thousand outdoor ornaments will be needed for the Capitol tree and another 1000 ornaments for the indoor trees.  Various groups around the state will provide the ornaments (including our local quilt guild).  For more info see

Kathy L provided the program on using "knife edge" facings on quilts (instead of a binding).  Handouts were provided.
