Projects from Sunday's Meeting (February 2014)

1. Nancy (Program Co-Chair) is working with the friends of the Ithaca library to help raffle off our "starry night". We would split the profits with them.

2. We will be making a group quilt for the Ithaca Cancer Resource Center, pieces to be turned in at the April 6 meeting, at the latest, but feel free to bring them for the March meeting if you have them. Each piece will be 10" X ____" (up to 20") - quilted and trimmed. Our theme is the "Emotions of cancer". All quilted blocks are to use use Kona "Coal" and Quilters Dream low loft cotton.  Pat (President) offered to put it all together using her fabulous quilt-as-you-go method with help at the April 6th sew day. Lauree  (Vice President) will present the quilt for a raffle at the May benefit for ICRC.

3. There was some discussion about making a quilt to benefit a local animal shelter. Puppies and kitties were the most discussed theme.  No concrete decisions were made. Will most likely be discussed again at the March meeting or after our cancer benefit quilt is finished.

4. Deb (Program Co-Chair) presented information about local spaces available to rent for a group sew. Several people are checking on,  and will be reporting in  March, on the costs of having our own quilting retreat/day.  We are looking into having a "sew day" for our April Meeting, details to come. A Sweatshop Night Project was also discussed with no final decisions made yet.
