IT'S TIME FOR THOSE "UFO" SIGHTINGS!
At our February Guild meeting, we had our annual UFO Challenge "Fun-draiser"! Your goal is to pledge to finish those "unfinished objects" that have been languishing somewhere in our sewing rooms, hidden out of sight and out of mind. For each item you pledge to finish by our June 12 Guild meeting, you will have to bring it in finished our pay $5 per unfinished project. Couldn't make it to our February meeting to declare your UFO? No problem!! We will have an opportunity to add your UFO (or additional UFO's!) to the list at our March meeting.
Congratulations, Carol Jo!
Carol Jo Wood's exquisite pine tree quilt was a winner in the MINI Quilts Contest (triangle catagory) of Moda's "12 Designers-12 Months-12 Contests". This was hosted in August 2017 by Primitive Gatherings. Lisa Bonegean's December 19, 2017 blog post featured the winning quilts. Moda provided prizes for winners, who also recieved a $100 Gift Card to Primitive Gatherings and a thank you prize for participating! Carol is the smiling face showing another of her minis - the red & white pineapple - in the photo above.
Way to go, CAROL!!!

MOOTANA QUILT UPDATE!!!
The quilt did not receive any bids (at our minimum of $500 or higher) in the latest silent auction for the Moo-tana Cow Quilt. The Cow Quilt Committee has prioritized ideas to donate (or sell) the Cow Quilt and identified agenicies which would be interested in accepting, and benefit from having, such a thematic quilt. The Committee will meet again in Spring 2018 (when two Committee members return from out-of-state) to implement plans to donate the quilt to a non-profit agency. We'll keep you posted! Questions?
