November 2011

Jeanne gave the program on making Christmas tree napkins (photo) - just in time for our Christmas giving. Everyone brought their own fabric choices, and no matter what the colors, they all came out beautifully.  We had two guests, Alice Flyr and Ginger Dager of Cody, and about a dozen regular members in attendance.

Lili announced her Under the Sea quilt won a first place ribbon at Quilting in the Tetons.. She also showed us examples of textured fabrics she learned to make at classes while in Jackson (photo).

Kathy announced she received an inquiry from Mary Clare Meyer about hanging our “Under The Sea” exhibit at the Mancuso Quilt Show in Denver next spring.  Jeanne has some of the quilts at her house and the rest of us will have ours available to mail in April.

Our Christmas exchange will take place at the next meeting.  If you bring a gift, you take one home.  Gifts will be hand-made, and the theme is Haiku, a poem, or nursery rhyme.  Bring a dish to share.

Kathy has an article published in the Fall 2011 issue of Quilting Quarterly, the NQA journal.  It is illustrated by two of her quilts, and one of Linda's quilts.  The title is "Are You Up to the Challenge?"
Carolyn announced her Bethesda quilt will be on display at the University of Nebraska conference.  Linda announced her little Peacock (radial symmetry) quilt will be on the cover of the Magazine of the Pennsylvania Council of Teachers of Mathematics.  Jeanne announced she will be in the member spotlight for the National Quilt Association (NQA) for June 2012.  Linda will be in the July spotlight.  Marybeth is the new director-at-large for the Wyoming State Quilt Guild, and she is also running for president of Paintbrush Piecers Quilt Guild for 2012.  We have a very busy group!
