From the President


Well what can I say!!!!!   It was a wonderful show. Our thanks to Norma Jeane, Beth and everyone else that helped in any way.  I heard nothing but good reports.   Remember to get your reservations to Karen for the luncheon.  It will be back at the church.   I delivered the quilt to Cindy B in Norborne on Monday, she was delighted.
See you at the luncheon!!!!                                                                                                     Marlyn  


September Friendship Block Drawing—Norma Jeane F

Friendship Quilt Winner!   Despite the fact that I'm up to my elbows in Quilt Show I'm happy my name was drawn.  It has given me a break and I'm excited to have my Guild friends help me make a quilt.  I've chosen a very easy pattern and will furnish the fabric.  The blocks are small and the pieces are big, so feel free to take several to complete.  Those of you who know me know that I like to put my quilts on goal for this one is 169 blocks.  Surprise, though!  There are no brights, no batiks, and no 30's!


For those who don't know me....I have been a Guild member for about 12 years and enjoy being with such an inspiring, creative group. When I am not quilting I enjoy traveling, decorating, miniatures, going to museums and art galleries, working in the yard, playing string bass in the Marshall Philharmonic, and being a Missouri Valley College drum line groupie.  My least favorite domestic chore is cooking.  For 32 years I've been married to Charles, who teaches at Mo Val, and I have a son, Bob Libbey, who lives in KC.  I'm happily retired from teaching!  Thank you.

Thanks again, everyone!
