President’s Message Karen Kehl
I am writing this while I am at QuiltCon in Atlanta. I am excited to see all the quilts, teach some
classes, take a class, and of course, do some shopping!
Quilt show season is beginning, and I am amazed by how many talented and creative quilters are
out there. I love seeing how many different quilts have been made. Speaking of quilt shows, I hope
you are all getting ready for the Friendship Star Quilt Show, Celebration of Quilts, coming up on April
21-23 at Asbury Methodist Village in Gaithersburg. Please enter up to three quilts in the show.
Remember, if there are no quilts, then there is no show. And please sign up to volunteer. A show like
this takes many, many hours, and if everyone helps, it is easier for all of us. It is also a great way to
get to know guild members that you may have seen and greeted, but not really become friends with
or worked beside.
I hope you all find time in March to work on a project that makes you happy. I am starting a 100-day
quilt project on March 1. I designed a quilt using traditional duck, goose, and bird blocks. I will work
on making a block a day over 100 days and by June 9th I will have a quilt top completed! If you have
a project that you are stalled on, consider joining me to make a block a day until it is done.
