BRQ Meeting – Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

Kathy Woods welcomed everyone and had Ruth Ann introduced our speaker, who would be first on the agenda.  Martha Akers is more an artist than a quilter.  She has been sewing all her life and studied Clothing and Textile Design at Virginia Tech and is a member of Star Quilters in Roanoke. She employs various techniques in her designs, i.e., colored pencils, crayons, dying fabrics, rubbings, stamping, .  She has won numerous blue ribbons through the years and continues to learn new skills. She said several times, “Learn something new every day”.20150414_183943 20150414_184334 20150414_184817 20150414_185343 20150414_190028 20150414_191955 20150414_192000 20150414_192008 20150414_192024

After the program we all enjoyed  Show & Tell and a display of all the finished Block #3’s of our Mystery Row by Row Quilt.  Kathy Wickham gave out the directions for Block #4.( Tulip Block)  We have two blocks to choose from or the option of doing both. Instructions will follow at the end of the minutes. Kathy also spoke about the upcoming Quilt Show hosted by the Star Quilters on May 1st & 2nd at the Berglund Center and the Bed Turning and children’s program at the Taubman Museum on April 18th.  Carol Zaleski asked for volunteers to help draft the by-laws for the group. Several ladies will work on a draft and present it at a future meeting.
