Present at the January meeting were: Kathy; Jeanne; Linda; Jane; Marybeth; Lili; Rebecca; Jeannette; Cheryll; Karen; and two guests Kenle? from Meeteesee, and Pat Pratt from Alaska. Pat and her husband are moving to Powell. We hope to see both Kenle and Pat in future meetings.
The "Under the Sea" challenge was discussed. It was decided to make the pieces 18" to 24" wide, and 72" long. This challenge will be displayed at the Yellowstone Quilt Fest (YQF) in September, and will be set up so viewers can walk among the works (similar to the tree challenge done in Oregon last year).
Under Karen's direction, YQF activities will soon begin. The block challenge is "Spirit of the West". Submit your 12 1/2" unfinished blocks to Marybeth or Karen before September. The block challenge is People's Choice.
Kathy will be teaching "Beyond Basic Bindings" at Big Horn Quilts on Jan 29th. Class is limited to 14, so sign up early.
