Happy Birthday to Naomi Powers. We sang to her and had birthday cake that Marian brought to her.

Discussion was held concerning waist band alterations on store bought jeans/pants. Many options were considered as well as demonstrated.

We had a 'musical chair' pass around of the zip lock bags full of scraps. Everyone got a different bag and was thrilled with the results. The SCRAP BAG EXCHANGE IS EVERY EVEN MONTH! Bring your zip lock bag of fabric scraps to pass around. Never know what's going to appear in those zip lock bags of scraps!

Bring ideas for short projects and demos for future meetings.


*Marian brought in some animal prints for making mug rugs for fundraisers for the Clayton Animal hospital.

*Debbie showed more of her mom's quilts. One was a flowered applique pattern looked like it was done from a kit probably in the sixty's. The other quilt was one that had lady bug fabric backing and a log cabin variation block on the other side.

*Naomi brought in her round robin quilt finished. For the newer members we explained what we did with the round robin blocks and how successful it seemed to be.

*Marian brought in her quilt top from the class taken at Sew Happy called Wendy's Starburst. Many of the fabrics from the bi-monthly scrap bag exchange were used.
