The holidays are over and the days of the week have straightened, so time to catch up with the Piecemakers Quilt Guild. We met on December 11, 2018, at Community Hospital-Fairfax.

Bev opened the meeting and roll call was answered with “the funniest Christmas gift you ever received,” and there were some “dandy” answers.

The secretary’s report and treasurer’s reports were given and approved.

Karen and Sara reported on gifts purchased for the group homes.

Everyone returned the stockings made for the gifts.

Gerri is working on a lap robe for the nursing home. Susan made hers and took it to the nursing home.

For Show and Tell Gerri showed the lap robe she made, Susan showed a UFO she has finished (a colorful camping quilt), and Sara showed a Christmas stocking her seven-year-old made.

Susan won the fat quarters.

We had our block exchange and it was suggested that we each have ours made into a quilt by the May meeting.

We discussed some plans for our May meeting and set up the committees.

We had our gift exchange and cookie exchange and meeting was adjourned.

Some of the ladies met at the Rock Port Senior Center January 10, to start making some more lap robes. We will try to meet again next month to make more.

Quilting is not only a good way to make friends and make things for other people, it is a learning process.
