  2. Choose three or four colors that exemplify the word you chose. Paint chips were provided at the May meeting. If you weren’t there, use anything you want as a color source – paint chips, paint, crayons, pens!
  3. Design a modern block (12.5″x12.5″) using your colors to respond to the word.

Opportunity Quilt: Name? Do you have a name for our quilt?  There will be a sign-up sheet for suggestions of names, and we will vote on a name at the meeting.

Philanthropy:  What local organizations would you like to see our Guild support? There will be sign-up sheets at the meeting!

Row Robin exchange: It’s time for the quilt reveal! Can’t wait to see what’s been done.More about the Row Robin here

Library: Judy Hunt, Library Chair, has organized the growing selection of books and magazines available to check out for a month.  If you have an item at home, please return it at the meeting so that it’s available for the next reader.

Step up: 

  1. We need a Quilt Host for the Opportunity Quilt.  This person will keep the quilt and arrange for it to be shown at various guilds and public places where opportunity tickets may be sold.
  2. Opportunity Ticket organizer – a person who will have the tickets printed and keep track of who has checked out tickets.  The recommendation last year was that the tickets come already numbered.
