Jo Club News

Hi Everyone!

We had Jo Club last night and it was a lot of fun! I just want to share the quilt we did for the new Jo Club 8. It was supposed to be a Patriotic Strippy that looked something like this:

But I had been wanting to do something with the brown stars, so we used the fabric from the new Providence line and did ours like this:

I was really happy with the way it turned out. If you are a memeber of Jo Club, you can do this quilt, too!

I also wanted to share the beautiful signature quilt the club members gave me:

I am not really sure what I did to deserve this, but it sure made me feel good. Thanks to everyone that participated!
If you have been thinking about signing up for Jo Club for the Spring session, you should know that we have lots of neat stuff planned. We will continue with the remaining 2 quilts in Club 8:

Holiday Inn and Meg's Baskets

We will be doing ours in different colors, again, and we won't be doing kits anymore, since we are not able to sell the extra ones outside of the club anymore. Instead, we will have fat quarters cut in the colors that we used, along with some alternatives that you may wish to use to create something different. Of course, you can make yours from any fabric you wish to use, and you will continue to get a 15% discount on any Jo Morton fabric you purchase on Jo Club night.

We have had one other change since the newsletter went out. Kathy has told us that due to some health issues with her family, she is not able to give Jo Club the attention that she would like, so she is going to take some time off from being the leader. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

In the meantime, Deb Walker has agreed to lead the club for this session and beyond if needed. She is an excellent quilter and a wonderful crafter, too. She has lots of ideas for nifty little extras we can do in Jo Club using the wonderful Jo fabric that we all love.

If you are thinking about joining, and you haven't already paid in advance for the Club 8 patterns, please sign up and order the patterns as soon as possible so that I can be sure to have them available for you at the January meeting.

Thanks - Carrie
