    Don't miss Second Chance Boutique! 

     7:00 pm meeting 

    The 2nd Chance Boutique is our garage sale for each other.  A great way to find treasures at less than retail, yet a fair price for the seller.  If you wish to sell items, please contact Tomasita Louviere-Ligons at tligons@yahoo.com or 512-730-1118 to reserve a table(s).  First come, first served. If you wish to buy, enjoy the shortest ever business meeting of the year and bring some cash. A lot of cash!

    This meeting will have no Show ‘n’ Tell, no free table, no door prizes, and no library, though you may return library books.  The only service tables open will be Hospitality, Membership, and Workshops. QuiltFest will have two tables.

    Hey, don't I know you?!? Don't miss an evening of letting your inner social butterfly shine! Come prepared for fun while meeting quilters new and old! Not age related but can be :)

    Bring 10 - 15, 9" finished, butterfly blocks, any technique (pieced, appliqued, collage, etc) "social butterflies" with your name on it to exchange blocks with 10 - 15 social butterflies you've not met yet. Make a small quilt with the blocks you have exchanged and bring to the December meeting for show and tell. Please, do not bring or make anything you can not part with or exchange blocks with members from your quilt bee. Bringing butterfly blocks, "social butterflies" are optional.

    Baby Bundles time! Come out and help make special quilts for special bundles of joy!


    The Baby Bundles Team is busy preparing as many tops as they can in order for this meeting to be fun and successful.  They will welcome you to begin working as early as 6:15pm.  You'll be given a choice of cutting, sandwiching, sewing (if you bring your machine!), tying or labeling.

    After a brief business meeting at 7pm, we'll go back to our jobs of putting love into these quilts. Please e-mail the Team at babybundles@aaqg.org and see if they have a Captain job that you would enjoy.  Captains assist with training in  the areas mentioned above.  We all know how to do this work, but the volunteers need to know exactly how the quilts are pinned or sewn, where to take them for the next step, etc.

    No library, no free table, no Show 'n' Tell at this meeting.

    Students will create units that are cut from long strips and then sewn together and remade in a Seminole pattern. The strips can be very colorful and are suitable to be used in a small quilt, wall hanging, or as accent to brighten up a garment. American Indians originally developed the Seminole technique. Please note: this class will focus on Seminole techniques, as opposed to Seminole piecing.

    Students will create a small quilt or garment that will "speak" for them. Using a traditional or a contemporary pattern each student will be encouraged to create a one of a kind work that is reflective of the creator's personality or ethnicity or expresses a social or political sentiment and/or express a sense of humor. A variety of construction and embellishment techniques will be explored. Students will be encouraged to mix contrasting prints, explore ethnic fabrics, colors and textures and to add buttons, ribbons, beads or whatever is necessary to make the quilt into a personal statement.
