March 2012 Meeting in Review

WOW!  The March meeting was B.U.S.Y.!  We barely had a chance to squeeze show and tells in!  There are so many fantastic things happening in our little guild right now.

We kicked off the meeting by tweaking our new bylaws.  A HUGE thank you to Trina and those who helped to get those looking so sharp.  They're looking great and are so clear.  :)

After working on bylaws we elected in some new officers.  Congratulations to our VP Crystal, Secretary Kristine, and Program Coordinator Stephanie.  We all REALLY appreciate you taking on those duties to help our guild run as smoothly as possible.

Then it was time to discuss committees.  We decided that the ones we "needed" to get off the ground and running were the Social Media Committee - chaired by moi, Amanda, Promotional Committee - chaired by Leslie, and our Historian - Cornelia.

Aren't we a go-get 'em group?!  ;)

This month's challenge is a 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" (Can also be used for the QuiltCon Challenge going on right now.) block to potentially be sent of to the QuiltCon Challenge or used in our upcoming Quilt Show.  Details on the Quilt Show to come soon!  :)

Speaking of the Quilt Show...we have a theme:  Defining [mod-ern]  We're very busy working on promotion tasks, show setup ideas, and getting ready for the submissions to role in May 1st-15th.

Other various things were discussed.  But, come on...you want to see the show and tell right?

Agnes came to her first meeting and shared several beautiful quilts with us.  This was my favorite!  So simple,  yet it speaks volumes.

We gave back our swap items at the meeting.  This was my swap item for a Elizabeth.  Just a little mini quilt.  It will be going to it's new home soon.  Elizabeth wasn't able to make it this go around.   
Angela made a darling little iPad case for Trina.  Love that pop of blue!!!

Angelina shared her Swoon quilt.  I'm swooning over those colors!

Crystal showed us her scrappy half triangle quilt that has been a long time in the making.  SO impressive!!!

Erin brought this quilt she created for her daughter's class.  This picture doesn't do it justice.  The handprints are darling, and the lettering that goes around the entire border of the quilt is just beyond impressive!

This idea was displayed on our group facebook wall and Jemellia jumped right on it!  That lady has ambition.  I like it!

Kristine made this darling little pillow cover (still in the works) for her swap item.  I may have to steal it...I love a good Cathedral Window.

Do you remember Leslie's W.I.P. Picture from last week?  Well, she made this darling little apron for Robin.  :)
See?  Darling right?!  (The apron...well, Robin too!)  Robin shared this little compass block she created.  So cheery!  (The block...well, Robin too!)

Stephanie popped in to bring me my swap items which I forgot to snap a picture of and already have scattered around my house in use!  Thanks so much Stephanie...I love every piece!!!  This is the sewing kit that Crystal made for Stephanie.  Darling!

Trina added a plum border to her son's bed quilt.

And Trina made this sweet pillow cover for Angela for the swap.
And although she wasn't present, Elizabeth sent me along with her little swap items for Leslie.  Love those owls.  :)
