The HAAQG Library will NOT be accepting book, magazine or pattern donations at October meeting. Sorry.
We have two new books -- Kaffe Fassett's new book "Quilts in America" (2018) and an older book "Quilts in Italy" (2016). Both are beautiful and inspiring. "Quilts In Italy" has 20 patterns including Stone Log Cabin, one of my favorite patterns. "Quilts In America" showcases 20 designs inspired by vintage quilts from the American Museum in Britian. Loved Dotty Fans and Technicolour (correct spelling from book) Circles. Both quilts have modern fun look.
We will continue taking Fons & Porter Love Of Quilting magazine subscriptions, new or renewals.
If you have any book suggestions, please let Connie J Carstens, Mary Weakman or Linda Edwards know.
They’re back!! We want your fabric scraps! Please bring your quilt scraps for the mystery bags for the 2019 Quilt Spectrum to any of the monthly meetings. The March meeting is the LAST time fabric will be accepted. Fabric scraps need to be quality cotton and no smaller than 2 inches. You may put your scraps on the counter outside the kitchen.
Visitors to this booth enjoy the “surprise” of opening their purchases. Many enjoy the “hunt” for that special brown bag. Thank you for helping us add an air of “mystery” to the Quilt Spectrum!
The total of donations last month was outstanding. The Show–n-tell of quilts for ‘Children without Beds’ was 27 plus 5 from earlier in the summer. Also, there were 49 finished pillow cases, 30 flannel Receiving Blankets with burp cloths; 5 smaller quilts and 3 fidgit quilts were taken to a nursing home.
This month we will again be receiving twin size quilts for the ‘Children without Beds’. Please keep these quilts with you when you come to the general meeting and we will show them all at once to save time.
Pillow case kits will be at the table to be taken and finished or sort out some of your stash that needs to “live” someplace else. Thank you!!!!

Been thinking about a new project? How about that technique you have been wanting to try or learn?
Creative sacks of scraps are ready for you to pick up at the Community Services table at October meeting.
Simple instructions! So, it can be more fun for us all. Any and all projects will be on exhibit at January meeting for guild to enjoy....so let’s create

It’s time to start making a new raffle quilt. The design is done, the fabric is purchased and cut, and now I need your help. Please stop by to see me at the September and October meeting and pick up a packet or two of kits to make the blocks.
I promise they are very easy. Each kit will have enough fabric to make several blocks. The blocks are-four patches: Two rectangles sewn together for make a square
Half square triangles (you don’t have to trim them)
Take kits for one, two, or all three types. I only ask that you sign out how many of each type of block kits you’ve taken, and you return them to me the following month. EASY!
Thanks in advance for your help. I couldn’t do it without your help.
The Community Projects Committee will again be collecting similar projects as last year, plus a few new ones. There are many projects available for you to work on. Please pick up a handout at the Community Projects Table with all the sizes and descriptions of each project or visit the Community Projects page of the HAAQG website for additional information.
Thank you to everyone for making our Community Projects so successful!

At the September 20th mentoring class we will be making a 3-D Pinwheel table runner. It looks really complicated, but it’s actually easier and faster to make than a traditional flat pinwheel block.
