Scrappy Ladies Quilt Guild

11 December 2017 - Minutes

Meeting held at the LaPlaza Hotel, Walsenburg

Linda made up our pizza box blocks in black/white/gray and is making a quilt for her granddaughter.  She decided to feature a large Missouri Star centered in the middle of the front and the back!

Above is a Large Star in a single print, and below is the Missouri Star.  Both of these patterns yield a large 23" x 23" block.  The patterns were not available at the meeting, so you may print them from here - use the PRINT buttons.

The YouTube tutorial for the Missouri Star is here

Attendance: Sandy Kline, Linda Bickle, Carol Davis, Nancy Shaw, Nancy Sexton, Renee Helgeson, Maryellen Naughton, Marilyn Williams, Virginia Johnson, Carol Briscoe, Tommi Lard, Jo Ozbun, Linda Wedgworth, Vanna Morningstar, Janet Behringer, Carolyn Baker, Marilynn Centa, Patty Corsentino, Barb Heaton, Kathleen Helm, Mary Filer, Carol Sandretto, Cathy Ortega, Margaret Arnot, Vicki Shafer, Helen Paul, Liz Alberici, Barbara Kindig, Sara Warren, Sue Barcus, Deb Behringer.  31 members were present.

Membership:  Dues for 2018 are payable now ($20), and become past due in February.

New Business:

  • Motion:  That the slate of officers as follows shall be elected for the coming year, 2018. President – Linda Bickle, Vice President – Mary Filer, Secretary – Nancy Shaw, and Treasurer – Margaret Arnot.  (Sandy Kline/Jo Ozbun/Passed).


  • Today’s meeting is our annual Christmas Luncheon.

  • Pizza Boxes! You may keep the blocks in your box if you choose, or you may trade one or a few.  Or you can give them all back to the Guild and we will arrange them into groups for charity quilt tops.   Any blocks that you do not wish to keep should be brought to the January meeting. The instructions for three bonus blocks (optional) are available on the website.
  • Directions for a new Charity Quilt Block were distributed.  It is a simple block called Lightning Zig-Zag.  Please make 2 blocks and bring them to the February meeting.

Respectfully submitted,
Nancy Shaw
