Our guild has many activities available for members to enjoy and/or participate in, including
Block of the Month
This year we’re doing “classic” Block of the Month. Each month for $2 you will get a focal fabric and instructions to complete a block. You take it home add your own fabrics to complete it and bring it back to the next meeting. Your name will go into the bag and the name drawn will will all of the returned blocks plus extra fabric to complete the quilt. Each month will be a different pattern and fabric to purchase for $2 for a whole new quilt. This is a very easy way to win a brand new UFO!! If you have any questions contact Barbara Baker.
The Challenge this year is to make a Monochromatic Quilt.Participants drew a bag in which a color chart for a specific color was contained. The challenge was to make a quilt using ONLY those colors. No trading colors; use only the colors on the color card – no additional colors may be used. Fabrics may contain white or black if the predominant color i from the card. No more than 5% white or black.Projects can be any item no larger than a twin size quilt.Projects will be displayed and voted on at the October 1 meeting.

All members are invited to meet and socialize at our “coffee klatches,” at the La Bou Restaurant, 6801 Five Star Blvd, Rocklin, CA, every Tuesday from 8-9:30 am. Come for all or part of the time.
We now have a ‘Free Stuff’ area for quilt-related items that you no longer want, such as patterns, orphan blocks, fabrics, etc. Just bring your items to the meeting and put them in the ‘Free Stuff’ area. During the meeting someone might look at your donation and see a treasure. Please check after break to see if your donation was taken . If not, please take it home; you can always bring it back next month. Any free stuff left after the meeting will be discarded.

Participate in GED: We take sign-ups in specified months; sign up with $2 and a list of 10 unfinished projects in no particular order. We’ll draw a number and you are tasked with finishing that number project on your list and bringing it back in 2 months. You can join any time.
