Time to Think Ahead!

With the 2013 quilt now one year away —  shocking I know — it is time to think about what you can do to help.

Volunteers are always needed, so think about what time you can give, and be in touch with your quilt show committee about your willingness to help.

Our small quilt auction is a necessary component for our financial health. So please think about donating a quilt to the auction. Auction Chairwoman Therese Ramsey is ready and willing to accept small quilts — you don’t have to wait until next year. And she isn’t picky about the size!

And, as time draws near, think about what you can do to help publicize the auction. You show committee is doing everything we can to get the word out, but the more people talking up the opportunity to own a piece of fabric art, the better.

There is also an opportunity for you to spread your design wings with our guild challenge. This year’s theme is “Holiday”, and we mean any holiday! The kicker is that a recognizable churn dash block must be included in the quilt. Chairwoman Debbie Wheeler can answer your questions, but specifics regarding size are under  the “Quilt Show” page on this blog and on our Facebook page.

I (Leeanna) understand how nerve-wracking it can be when someone says “design a quilt”. It’s not my strong suit. However, nothing says you can’t use someone else’s design as a springboard, as long as you properly credit that designer.

Get to the work, fellow quilters. The 2013 show is just around the corner.
