October 2010 Meeting

Thank you Jeri for hosting this month's meeting. We had a great time and learned so much. The practice session on continuous line machine quilting ideas was great. Thanks to Robyn, Cindy and Carolanna for your fun ideas and sketches. What a great idea to sketch on the back of gift wrapping in order to see how the design looks on a larger scale.

Also Maurene reported to us that our cancer auction quilt auctioned off for a record $2200. It's very motivating to know that our quilts are not only appreciated but especially that this money will go to such a wonderful cause.

Jeri served us a yummy fruit pizza. Here's the recipe:
