Our March Meeting, Pictures & Etc.

It seems we had lots of business and things to discuss so it was a busy meeting with lots of show and tell, a good program and of course, good refreshments to end our evening. We had our strip pieced block lottery and had a huge response to it. We had enough blocks for 5 different drawings, 4 stacks with 24 blocks each and 1 stack with 18 blocks. Wow, thanks to everyone who participated and we can't wait to see what each person does with their stack of blocks!!!  We are having a PHD challenge going on throughout the year and it has really enthused "some" people to get going on their challenges. Phyllis was our hands-down winner this month with (if I counted correctly) 12 pieces that she had finished. I hope I can get them all shown correctly in the slide show so you can drool over all of the show and tell.

We had a local professional artist, Pam Cates, that gave the program for us. Her program "Color Theory from an Artist's Point of View" was a good lesson for us quilters. She showed us some of her paintings and talked about tints and hues on the color wheel. It was very interesting to hear her tell about her life as an artist and how she thinks about the colors she uses. As quilters we think along some of the same lines as an artist, I'm sure. We had a nice meeting, a great program and delicious refreshment as always. See you next month...
