Jill's Bee Blocks were shown on the design wall as members returned them completed.
The meeting was opened by Kelly Duke with a few "housekeeping announcements".
- There will be no break during the meeting to facilitate keeping to the established 90 minute time frame.
- We are trying a new seating arrangement to aid in visibility for all.
Our speaker for the evening was Shawna Haynes of Jean Marie's Fabrics,(and a member of our guild), who gave us some informative insight on how fabrics go from design the the shop keeper's shelves, and the changes to the process in the last decade.
Daisy Schrock presented the Feb. Skill Building BOM Flying Geese Block. The blocks are to be finished to 16" and are for you own use and may be of any color or pattern fabric you choose.
Note that members may donate a blue January block for a charity quilt.
Three Permission to Play Blocks for the Feb. theme of Variation were shown by Jenny Bonynge (hearts), Pat Johnston (circles) and Phylis Porter ( Cat in water paints).
The March P2P is "Going In Circles"
Our Swap challenge for Feb. was a very popular one of a Pillow. We had 8 pillows of various sizes.
And this one from one of our newest members, Loralie.
