October Meeting

The following members and guests were present for the October meeting:  Kathy, Jeanne, Cindy, Jane, Linda, Jeanette, Barbara, Rebecca, Elizabeth, Cheryl, and Sandy. 

Kathy reminded everyone that bios are needed for the Sky Lines appraisal.  The Sky Lines quilt display is now at the Meeteese Museum.  It will be going to the Big Sky Quilt Show in Billings, and the NQA in the future.  Other venues were discussed.

Karen wasn't present to discuss possibilities for next year's YQF, but ideas were flowing, and they will be passed on to Karen for her thoughts.  One thought includes a TAGY Special Exhibit.  More on this later.

The Wyoming State Quilt Guild will be meeting in Powell in July 2011.  Sharon Schamber and Vicki Pignatelli will be giving classes.  Both are excellent teachers and their classes should be fun and exciting.

Lark Books is publishing a new book on Nature Quilts.  Kathy and Jeanne's entries are on the "short list" being considered.  There were over 2100 entries and only 85 "spots" available, so this is quite an honor.  They won't know who makes the final cut until January.  Kathy and Rebecca were accepted into the Public Lands fine arts display that will be held at Northwest College.

Kathy showed her quilt-in-progress for the Fast Friday Fabric Challenge on-line group (elk photo).  Linda forgot her piece, but Jane had a photo of it on her camera and passed that around (quilted pottery photo).  Rebecca said she would like to join the FFFC group too. This month's challenge was Chiaroscuro, or light and dark, as used in the old masters paintings.

There was no program this meeting.  Next year, each member will be asked to sign-up to give a program so each month will be assigned.  In November, Kathy will give her program on how to make square corners, and in December we will have a Christmas party and gift exchange.  The gifts will be hand made using the beads that Marybeth provided earlier in the year. 

It was announced that Friends & Company has 40% off on Misty Fuse, so some of us stopped by there on the way home.  Submitted by Linda MacDonald
