JAN. 18TH BLOCK PARTY SOCIAL - 1ST MEETING OF THE YEAR

The 2010 first meeting of the year greeted the members at the door with a sign in sheet, program books and membership cards. Then it was off to their designated tables to meet with the groups they will be in for this year. Each group is assigned a leader or chair and the Chair has a committee assignment that they look to their group members to help them with.

The largest group each year is made up of the board members, you can see the Rural Quilters studying their block books - top picture - trying to come up with a block that best represents their group. Next is the Home & Hearth group and next Quilting Believers.

Each groups table had pen, pencil, crayons, scissors, ruler, cardboard block to decorate and a catalog. "Material" was to be taken from the catalogs or crayons. Members brought their block books from home to help them decide on a block to create. During this time they also got to socialize and get better acquainted with the people in their group, and have a little time to talk about the committee assignments their chair had for the year. The ultimate goal was to design a block that to them best described their group's name.
