To my fellow Coastal Quilters,
During this time of closures, social distancing, and necessary precautions regarding COVID-19, I want to take a few minutes to address future Guild activities. I will follow what Leslie does with the Neptune Beach Senior Activity Center. If the Center is closed, then there will be no meetings or classes. When the Center re-opens, then I am willing to resume our meetings and classes. At that time, however, I recommend that everyone continue to take the proper precautions to keep yourself and others safe and healthy.
I hope that everyone in the Guild stays well and comes out of this world-wide crisis in one piece and I look forward to seeing each other when its over.

The February monthly meeting was delayed a week because of a wicked storm approaching our area and when it hit, it was wicked! The delayed meeting was fun and informative. Pat Sena demonstrated an easy method for a Cathedral Windows block and Patty Thomas showed a technique for applique using a fusible interfacing that produced beautiful ‘turned’ edges. Everyone went home eager to try the new techniques.
The members participating in the Round Robin project shared their completed quilts!
Our February meeting program will be demonstrations of less often used ‘Unusual Blocks”. We will see the Drunkard’s Path, Cathedral Windows, and Orange Peel.
Coastal Quilters members Robyn Arrington and Leslee Burch ran the trains at the Beaches Branch Library’s holiday Model Train display. A little quilt shop on the layout was fitted with some very miniature quilts. Wouldn’t that be a fun spot for a Shop Hop!
