February Sew-in Meeting Minutes


Several members and guests gathered at Beechwood Reformed Church Lodge for an informal gathering of sharing and learning.  Gorgeous finished UFO’s were shown and admired.

Barb Briedemeier served as instructor for an Iris Folding project that was something simple enough to teach young grandchildren when done with paper, or detailed and precise when done with fabric and sewing machine.  The surprise was that the “Iris” was the iris of an eye (the center of the design) rather than the flower.  Everyone went home with a beautiful completed note card and resources for other designs.

Barb also told about the Ultimate Guild Challenge for AQS summer 2018 which Big Red Quilt Guild members are encouraged to participate in.    The cost is $5 and the theme is Blooming Butterflies.  Details are available on our website.

The April bus trip to Chicago has been cancelled due low enrollment.

Several Charity Quilts were available for quilting (the tops are completed).  

Kathy Mueller, Program Chair, reported there is room for a few more people to participate in the Frieda Anderson class to be held March 27, 2017.  Go to the website for sign up information and details or call Kathy if you have questions (616-399-4685).
