September Meeting News Comfort   Quilts   boasted   its   largest   ever   intake   of   quilts   taken in   at   a   single   meeting   at   157!      Seventy   five   of   those   quilts went   right   back   out   into   the   commuity   to   show   love   and comfort   to   those   in   need.         As   more   requests   are   received, those will also be distributed. The   special   speaker,   Ruth   Ohol,   displayed   thirteen   of   her spectacular   domestic   machined   quilted   quilts   which   included several   she   had   received   ribbons   on   at   national   quilt   shows.     Her    talk,    “Lessons    Learned    the    Hard    Way,”        presented    a number   of   mistakes   she   had   made   in   her   quilting   journey   and   the   ways   to   avoid   them.      One   example was   the   importance   of   making   a   small   sample   of   a   border,   or   even   a   block   to   audition   colors   and   even quilting   techniques.      A   lot   of   time   can   be   wasted   by   presuming   your   fabric   and   color   choices   are perfect   only   to   discover   that   they   are   not   perfect   a nd   a   change   in   fabric,   thread   color,   or   even   quilting design needs to be made.
