Leigh posed the question, have you ever heard of Auction Ohio?  About half yes, half no. 
Annual Dues of $10 are now due for 2024.     

Kyle from Auction Ohio gave us an overview of their business.   All auctions are online.   He gave us a tour of their warehouse.

Fabric swap  one yard of fabric cut into 8 fat eighths,  approx. 9 x 21 “  April,   Tula Pink -  May - Kaffe Fassett and August – Charlie Harper.  Participants go home with several different fabric pieces. 

Thread catcher swap  About 5 members participated in the thread catcher swap.  Pictures are on Facebook.

Mug Rug Swap    The next swap will be due at June meeting.   A mug rug is a quilted piece which can hold your cup and maybe a snack.  The group decided the mug rugs should be about 6 x 8 inches.  Please bring finished project in a bag and it will be random choice by those that participate.  

Quilt project for 2024 This project will consist of a monochromatic quilt.  Solids or prints can be used, but should be of the same color family.  Please bring your cut pieces to the  May meeting. August meeting some completed blocks and due at November meeting.  About 11 members expressed an interest in this project.   

Quilting retreats – The first quilt retreat was held April 19 – 21 and 6 people attended.  Pictures are on Facebook.  The second retreat will be help 7/25 – 7/28.   They will both be held at the Hotel Millersburg.  Contact Leslie Wood for more information. A Facebook group has been set up for those attending.    No July guild meeting due to the retreat in July.   

Quilt ruler library – we will have more discussion on a possible library of quilt rulers.   The idea is for members to donate rulers they may no longer want and they could be lent out to other members to use and then return.

Improv challenge due at May meeting.  Improv is really free form.  No pattern used.   The piece can be a wall hanging, table runner, baby quilt to a full size quilt.  If making a baby quilt or larger, a pieced top will be considered eligible.  Smaller pieces must be completed (quilted)  

Show and Tell  - several members shared their projects – pictures available on FB.
