March 2022 Meeting Minutes

Meeting Date: March 10, 2022

We will be back in person at Blue Bar Quilts next month (April). Dustin will share updates with the group about meeting capacity. 

Project Linus continues to accept donations, and is especially in need of no-sew fleece blankets. This is a great project for kids, scout groups, classes, etc. 

Block Lotto: Ellen Sweeney won the shamrocks! For April, the block lotto block will be a blue and yellow block by Pat Sloan designed to generate donations for children in Ukraine. 

Marian shared updated details about the PAUSE with Mad Mod weekend Zoom sewing options. If you participate in Friday night sewing Zooms, watch for an updated Zoom link coming soon. The postcard swap is awaiting some logistical details; those who signed up will receive updates as soon as Marian has them. 

Bungalow Quilts in Ripon is offering free fabric from their sale rack to anyone who wants to make a quilt for Ukraine. Judy, the owner of Bungalow Quilts, is coordinating the effort. Learn more on her website

Presentation Notes: Our speaker was Yvonne Fuchs, aka Quilting Jetgirl. Yvonne has lots of great tutorials on her website so that you can explore some of the same exercises she used to create the pieces from her trunk show.
