April 2019 Meeting Reminder

Modern Quilters,

I thought we were beyond the snow, but apparently not. No matter, because by our April 23rd meeting, we will be well on our way to nice Spring weather.

Several reminders:

Blocks for the Alabama Storm victims are due. Such a fun easy block, that when put into a quilt will bring comfort to those affected by the horrific storm. It’s not too late
to make a block or two. Instructions are here.

April will be your last chance to purchase raffle tickets to win a portable design wall. Retail price for the Design Wall is $90. Betty Woodruff is handling this for the guild. Tickets are $5. See Betty at the meeting if you are interested. A winner will be drawn at the April Meeting.
