Membership in Quilters Guild of Plano runs from October through September. Dues should have been paid by September 30th, but sometimes we forget. If you have not paid your dues, please do so as soon as possible. You can print out the Membership Form and mail it with your payment to the address on the form, or you can bring it with you to the next guild meeting. If you are not sure whether you've paid or not, go the Membership Roster (Members tab) and click your name. It will show a "Paid Through" date, which will be 09/30/2019 if you have already paid.
Our December meeting is our annual Holiday Party. We will have a business meeting and our Soup Bowl Cozy exchange (see details below). Bring your soup cozy in a gift bag for the exchange. Also, remember to bring your Block of the Month blocks #3 and #4, and any donations for Lovepacs.
Blocks 3 and 4
Introducing our newest challenge, the Quiltmakers Block of the Month! This challenge features 13 blocks over 6 months (in case you want to set your blocks on point) and is a study in color value and its importance in creating a successful quilt! At each meeting, we will be revealing two blocks, with the last three being revealed at the March meeting. For instructions, patterns, and fabric requirements, head on over to the Challenge page.
For our December challenge and exchange, we will be making fabric soup bowl cozies! Easy and fun to make, you will find that you have a stack of them sewn together before you know it! Head over to the Challenge page for instructions and details. Bring your finished cozy in a gift bag for the exchange at the December guild meeting.
