MEETING MINUTES
APRIL 4, 2012
SEWING STUDIO, MAITLAND, FLORIDA
10:00 AM UNTILL APPROXIMATELY 11:15 AM

I.  SIGN IN, MEET AND GREET, INTRODUCTION OF NEW MEMBERS AND GUESTS
     There were 16 people in attendance including new members and visitors.


II. MARCH BLOCKS OF THE MONTH
     The blocks were won by Jackie.




III. CHEVRON BLOCKS
Quite a few (as of yet uncounted) chevron blocks were turned in for a charity quilt.  More information is posted under the Charity Quilts Section.



IV.  RAFFLE BASKET
The raffle basket was provided by Lisa and won by Terry.


V.  MAY BLOCK OF THE MONTH
Linda introduced Wild Waves, the  Block of the Month for May, a 12.5 inch unfinished block which is to be done in brights and white. Alejandrina has already posted a tutorial online.


VI. CHARITY QUILTS
The chevron blocks will be used to make fundraising quilts for the Camaraderie Foundation. Jodi said that there appeared to be enough Chevron blocks to make two quilts.  The plan is for one wall hanging (around 36 by 36 inches) and one lap quilt (around 50 by 60 inches), which could potentially be auctioned at the Foundation's events for Memorial Day and Veterans Day. During the summer Jodi will collect additional sampler blocks for a future quilt for this group. For these additional blocks please use any combination of white, red and/or blue to create 12.5 unfinished blocks of your choosing.  

The group also accepted Jodi's proposal that the guild members make small items such as potholders, oven mitts, place mats, mug rugs, and coasters for Habitat for Humanity. The items would be added to the small gift baskets that are presented to each new home owner involved with the local Habitat for Humanity. One suggestion was that items (optionally) could have house blocks used the making of the small items.  Another great suggestion was that we should consider making gifts in sets, for example a pair of potholders, 4 placemats, and a set of coasters. Items will be collected throughout the year at Guild meetings and they will be turned over to Habitat for Humanity about twice a year.


VII.  OTHER GUILD BUSINESS
          VALERIE GOODWIN WORKSHOP
The Valerie Goodwin workshop is to be held on May 9th at the Southwest Branch of the Orange County Library System (The Dr. Phillips Location.) The cost to participating guild members will be $25.00 for the class PLUS a $10.00 kit fee for a total of $35.00. The class runs from 10 AM until 4:30 PM. A signup sheet was distributed at the April guild meeting, and Alejandrina will send specific details to the guild members very soon.

          AAQI QUILTS
The quilts from our guild challenge are now posted on the AAQI site.

          FIELD TRIP
The date of the field trip to a quilt shop in the Rockledge area needed to be rescheduled.  The group selected June 2.  More information will be forthcoming from Alejandrina.

          BUSINESS CARDS
Members were given a few business cards in order to promote the guild to others who may be interested in joining.
