From the President. . .

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful 4th of July. It was a little to

muggy for me, I am an air conditioning kind of gal.

I hope you all enjoyed meeting in person last month. It was wonderful to

see all of you. I think our meeting was a lot of fun.

I spoke with Marci at CASA, I was giving her an update on all the quilts I

brought home after our meeting. Thank you to each of who sent one with me.

Just out of curiosity I asked how many children are being helped by CASA at

this time. It has grown from 10 to 17. I told her I did not know if we would get

that many but we will try. After talking with Linda, she thinks it would be better to give the quilts at the November meeting. So, you all have a little more

time to work on them. Thank you again.

If you want to go ahead and make a label for your quilt. Just have this info

on it please. Blue Valley Quilt Guild 2021 Quilt Project Seward, NE.

I am looking forward to seeing the President Challenge Quilts you all have

come up with. I suppose I should get started on mine! On a 3X5 card write

your birthstone color and your birth month flower. We will vote on them at

this July meeting.

I met with Sandi (Carrington) and Diane (Rousek) and they are willing be

our program directors for the rest of this year. They still have their contact

information for the plans they had for 2020.

I would like to thank Linda (Riesberg) for providing programs for all the

meetings zoom and now in person.

The July program will be "The specialty rulers that made our quilts". This

sounds very interesting. I went on the 2021 Shop Hop and their theme was

rulers, so I have a few to bring and show, not sure how to use them. This will

be a learning experience for me too.

Hope to see you on the 19th. Kris
