President's Message May 2009

Hi everyone!

I know we are all looking forward to Lynn Roddy Brown's lecture and class. We are very fortunate to have her visit the guild. Scrap quilts seem to be a favorite in our guild members and I am sure that we will learn a lot from her. We can all use some new ideas and knowledge that can work well with our Scrap Challenge quilts. This Fall, the results of our Challenge should be awesome!

Thank you, again for sharing your quilts at the meetings. We all enjoy viewing them. I, personally, love to see the walls covered in quilts. I hope you are, too. I leave every meeting so inspired to try something new! And with that in mind, we are asking that you bring quilts that you have done as a Block of the Month or a "First Saturday" sampler quilts to this meeting. Please remember that we also want to see your "regular" show and tell.

Thank you, too, for participating in all the Guild's activities. All of your talent, ideas, enthusiasm, and warm friendship make our monthly meetings a special treat that I look forward to every month.

Happy Quilting! Mary
