|October Patchworkers Meeting|
met Oct. 9, 2012 at the Library, and discussed filling baskets for the
annual Silent Auction Library fundraiser, and members were reminded of
the Claremore Quilt Show scheduled for Oct. 19.
Final plans were made for the upcoming retreat, and monthly Sew-In (always scheduled for the first Saturday that follows the regular meeting). Rosie Vaught received the exchange blocks in "crayon colors," and Janice Coke chose black and white, with a bright splash of color for her Nov. blocks.
Chris Pierce presented a program on block strategy...sewing strips together & cutting shapes that can be arranged a myriad of ways.
Next month's meeting will be November 13 at the Library, with the dozen 5" square exchange in "blacks."
