We are already thinking about next year's raffle quilt. Please bring a red, white or cream fat quarter to the March meeting. Please make sure it is quilt shop quality.
The AQG 2016 Mystery Quilt is starting soon! This is a 7-month mystery. The first clue can be picked up at the January meeting. The quilt, as set out in the clues, makes a quilt that is approximately 50” x 60”. However, it can easily be made larger by adding more blocks or by adding more borders.
The cost of the clues will be $5 per month. Persons participating in the mystery will be able to pick up their monthly clue at the guild meetings. Only cash will be accepted when picking up that month’s clue. If you miss a month, you may pick up the previous month's clue by paying for both at once. After the March meeting, no one new will be able to enroll in this year's mystery as that increases the difficulty for the Treasurer to keep track of who has picked up their block clues.
AQG will not be providing a fabric kit. You will need to purchase the required fabric (or raid your stash). Part of the fun of this mystery will be to see the fabrics which each of the guild members chooses.”The Big Reveal” will be held at the annual Mini-Quilt auction. Everyone who participates in the Mystery Quilt is encouraged to bring their mystery quilt or top or even partially finished pieces to the Mini-Quilt Auction so that everyone can see the variety.

This month, please bring hair care items. Also we are collecting Hobbs labels/barcodes from batting packages. This will enable us to get batting at a greatly reduced price from the Hobbs Company.

We will have a work night at the April meeting. This will be the only work night for 2016, so please plan to come, bring your sewing machine, and plan to work and visit a while. We are so richly blessed and this is an opportunity to give back to the community.
Calling all quilters in the Allen area, join us for monthly programs, great friendships and all the creativity you can stand. AQG meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church of Allen, 605 South Greenville Avenue in Allen MAP IT.
