August is heating up....

And things are happening...
So the summer has flown by.  I am not sure about you guys, but it feels like summer just started and now it's on the verge of ending. I can't say I've been as productive as I'd hoped, but in reading FaceBook and seeing photos from the meetings, you guys are Rockin'!  Way to crank out the good stuff.  Congratulations  are due all around to Leslie and Danielle for their outstanding accomplishments this weekend!  Leslie had a traveling exhibit called "Rituals" which was at the Long Beach International Quilt Festival, and her quilt will continue on to Houston this fall.  The accolades keep rolling with  Danielle placing 2nd in the Wall Category in the New Braunfels Show this weekend.  Way to go ladies! Whoohooh!

Well we have tons going on this month to include a few events.  This Thursday, August 2nd is our installation tea.  Thanks to Debbie T., and the countless members helping with all of the arrangements, our new board members will be welcomed with open arms, while the exiting board will be missed.  Speaking of missed, Anna V, has moved and joined the Houston Modern Quilt Guild.  We will miss her, but she promises to keep in touch and visit often!  Good luck Anna!
