Patricia’s quilt show, a most dependable harbinger of Spring, was in
full swing March 15th with a lovely display of quilts including our
own raffle quilt. Dorothy Richardson and I spent the day chatting
with friends and meeting new folks. At one point in the afternoon a
Perinton Guild member bemoaned the fact that she had come with no
cash so was unable to purchase a raffle ticket. Dorothy suggested
that perhaps her friend would buy one for her. There was an odd
little pause as it became clear she had come alone and then, with a
smile, a nearby woman said she would be happy to do just that and
purchased tickets for both of them – quilter’s truly are a sharing
The choice of Milly’s Pantry as recipient of a portion of the
proceeds has been well received, many commented on it being reason
enough to support the raffle and there were even a few outright
The raffle has had a good week - Bobbie Beckhorn sold tickets at a
dinner, it traveled to Patricia’s and then on to Greece where Gail
Holmes offered the tickets at the QCNYS meeting.
You will notice that once again the Hospitality tasks are not
filled. Please consider volunteering to clean up after the April
meeting, it does not take long and is a necessary responsibility.
Lake to Lake Agenda
Afternoon: Trunk Show by Pat Pauly
It certainly has been a couple of months for good
quilting! I hope everyone is staying warm as I see our open lake
water is now iced over again this morning. I am reading and working
on the By Laws to ready the Nomination portion of the laws for
voting. This will need to be done before we can elect new officers
so please send me any input on this topic. We will have some round
table discussions on this topic after the May meeting if time

Bloom Where You're Planted - Spring Into Color Quilt Show 2014
Friday, May 16th and Saturday, May 17th
Add these to your Quilt Show checklist of things for the April meeting:
QUILTS FOR THE SHOW!
Sally Acomb is accepting the online registrations for the quilt show and has only received one as of yet. Snail mail entries can be sent to Dawn Dennis or personally given to Dawn or myself at the April Meeting. We encourage EVERYONE to participate. Do not be shy; one grows so much when you enter your work into the show. Even just a little quilt will work. Make a mini! There is still time to send in the registration and then complete the quilt. The more quilts we have the better our show is and I know that we have had many more Show and Tell items than what I have for entries!
BED TURNING AND APPRAISALS
Needed! Please sign-up at the March meeting and pick-up paper
work. The paper work has to be turned in at the April meeting along
with enter forms of quilts with pictures for the show.

We currently have15 people signed up for this monthly exchange.
For the April exchange you will need to bring 15 purple strips. These should be 2 1/2" wide by the width of the fabric. Remember to wash and press your fabric prior to cutting. Buy good quality fabrics.
This is the final exchange for a few months. If you have any ideas for the next fabric exchange, please mark them down at the April Meeting. There will be a sheet on the table where we do the exchange. Your comments will be most welcomed!

Thank You very much for the Baby Quilts turned in
this past month. Cathie and I are bringing in a suitcase of fabric
and the precut batting with backing. We ask that those who are
willing please take home some fabric and batts, backing and labels.
If your thing is to make tops please do and return top to be passed
on for the finishing. My goal is to have all of the baby quilt
donations out of Cathie's house by the end of summer. I am still
looking for someone to help with this service project.
O Susannah’s Quilters Take NYC September 19 weekend has a second bus going and some space remains. Contact the shop to make a reservation – the deposit is due May 1. (submitted by Cheryl Jordan)
