      • we need to see your vision, you should have a visual guide to your quilt- whether it is a sketch or computer-generated design,  we need to be able to visualize your quilt as close to the final product as possible.
    • Required items for Selected Quilts
      •  selected quilters will be asked to submit the following items.  We don't need your finished quilt but we do ask that you take great photos and write thorough instructions that others can follow.

Our meeting closed with a Ice Cream Social and show and tell of "Quilts from our Past".  Members were asked to bring their first quilt they ever made to share.  There were some really good ones.  Thank you to all who participated.
