Welcome to Quintessential Quilters!
The next meeting is Thursday, January 12, 2022 and will be a Zoom meeting. A Zoom link will be sent via email (groups.io) a few day before the meeting. Send photos of your finished quilts to email@example.com for inclusion in our virtual show and tell. Be sure to include your name! If you are new to Zoom, look for information how to use it with your device, and learn how to un-mute yourself if you have show and tell!
Our February meeting will also be a Zoom meeting. The speaker will be Eleanor Levie.
GROUP QUILT RAFFLE
“The Year In Stitches” Win a set of fourteen 12 inch quilts made by QQ members – one for every month plus celebrations and game days! Add a bit of color on the wall, counter, office cubicle, door – any small space. One half of the proceeds will be donated to Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center. Tickets are $1 each. Purchase from a QQ member or at https://app.galabid.com/qquilters22 (Note: This is a raffle, not an auction – tickets purchased online will be entered in the drawing December 8. The ticket site refers to auction, but it is a raffle.)
All the quilts in the Group Quilt Raffle can be viewed in the slideshow below. Click on the right or left arrows to change the quilt shown, or on the dots on the bottom, or allow the quilts to change on their own after a few seconds.

QQ 40TH ANNIVERSARY RED & WHITE QUILT CHALLENGE
For members still thinking about joining the challenge to celebrate our 40 years as a guild, there’s plenty of time, items are not due until November. We hope you’ll come up with something to join our celebration. Large or small. It is supposed to be fun and a way to stretch your creativity; it is not meant to be work! Full guidelines for this challenge are included in past newsletters.
Here are photos of our November display at the Delaware County District Library, 84 E. Winter Street, Delaware 43015.
See our Quilt Display page for more photos of the quilt exhibit at the library.
