October 2023 Meeting

Monday, October 9th, 6:30 p.m.
Carriage House at Overholser Mansion
405 NW 15th St, Oklahoma City

Round Robin Reveal
It's the meeting we've been waiting for all year... it's time to reveal those Round Robin quilt tops!

This year we had 4 groups of 5 who participated, resulting in an incredible 20 quilt tops! And while my math skills are indeed awe-inspiring, they are nothing compared to the awe we'll experience when these tops are revealed for the very first time...

...but first, a few details to be aware of before Monday's meeting!
  • The October meeting will begin a little early (did you catch that above?). We are asking for members and guests to be in their seats by 6:25pm on Monday so we can get right to it. 
  • There won't be a business meeting or regular Show-and-Share that night. (The Show-and-Share support group can meet afterwards at Louie's).
  • The order of the groups presenting will be selected at random that night so that everyone can enjoy an equal amount of stress prior to the meeting.
  • Each of the 4 groups will have 20 minutes to present their 5 quilt tops, which includes time for light discussion about each member's contribution and approach to the process for each quilt. does this work?
I'm glad you asked. See below...

The handy dandy 'Outline of a Group Reveal'
  • (Surprise!) The quilt top is revealed to the quilt owner (aka the person who made the center block) by the person who added the last round.
  • Once revealed to the quilt owner and oooohhhhhh and ahhhhhhhed by everyone you will then hang the quilt at the front of the room. Hangers will be provided for you to clip on.
  • Repeat above steps 5 times.
  • Once all 5 quilt tops have been revealed, the group members will use the remaining time to share their thoughts with the audience on how they approached creating their center block and then how they went about contributing to each quilt.
  • When the group's presentation is complete the quilts will be re-hung along the walls around the Carriage House, and we will move on to the next group for their reveal.
Can I walk around and look at the quilts in detail?
Yes. But we ask that you please wait until all 4 groups have finished. At the conclusion of all group presentations, guild members and guests may wander around our impromptu quilt show at their leisure to look more closely at the quilts and ask any questions they have to the makers.

The goal is for the meeting to be finished by 8:15pm, with everyone packed up and out the door by 8:25 or so.

See you on Monday the 9th!
