The Quilt Show is rapidly approaching.  Put the finishing touches on the quilts you are displaying.  Clean out your stash of the fat quarters you will never use and give them to the grab bags.  We can still use items for the raffle baskets.  Help make our show a resounding success.
If you are working on the summer challenge of a fall holiday quilted item, they must be ready for the Sept. meeting.  The holidays are Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  If you make something for the challenge, don't forget to put it in the quilt show.
Please be aware that there is always a need for quilts for the Hospice of the Chesapeake.  The quilts are lap size, no larger than 50 x 60.  There are several quick quilt patterns floating around or choose your own favorite quick quilt.  They prefer red, white and blue as the quilts go to the veterans but they will take any quilt you make.  Please keep this cause in mind when you begin your next quilt.
November is fast approaching and so is Quilters Quest .  Many quilt shops are offering buses to help their customers make the circuit of shops on this year's Quest.  The buses always fill up early so if you are thinking of going get your reservations in early.
