As an enticement to having your quilts judged I am going to
quilt one of my antique linens for a drawing. For every $5.00
judged entry submitted and delivered - your name will be
placed in the drawing box. If you have five quilts judged you
will have five chances to win the linen. The drawing will be
held at the close of the judging session. So - don’t be afraid
of the judge - enter your quilts to be judged. If you want to
know what a thrill it is to win a ribbon just ask Dee Jager-
horn - she won several last year and cried with joy!!!

Remember all entries must be turned in at the January meet-
ing.

Thank you all for the support you have given me as Quilt
Show Chair.

When Lisa Lundeen (now in charge of Wounded Warrior quilts for Community Service) asked me to go along to present a
quilt on December 17th, I agreed easily. At the end of the Christmas party, Santa (Becky Pendergraph’s husband) told us
about a young serviceman from Beale who had been injured and we agreed to give him one of the Wounded Warrior
quilts. I have presented many quilts for the guild because we have made hundreds of quilts for needy folks and this
sounded “pretty routine” to me. Little did I suspect how different this presentation would be.

Lisa and her sister and I drove to the base to meet Becky and Janet (two of the 3-team Christmas party ladies). We were
told to meet there about noon but soon found out that things were delayed. The young airman we would be presenting
the quilt to had been part of the police unit at Beale AFB. After sustaining injuries in Afghanistan, Philip Newlyn was sent
to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C. and continues his treatment there. As part of the larger Wounded Warri-
ors.org program, Phillip was flown to Sacramento airport to spend Christmas with his parents who live in Madera and that
flight was delayed.

We waited in the parking lot at Beale for Airman Newlyn to arrive as a crowd of servicemen and women assembled to
greet him and the news media took pictures. Escorted by CHP, amid red lights and sirens, the young airman arrived. From
his parents’ truck, a thin, 20 year old wounded airman was helped into a nearby wheelchair and waved to the crowd. The
general spoke a few words about his bravery and the squadron commander welcomed him back to Beale. The VQG ladies
presented the beautiful strip- pieced, red, white and blue quilt and I found it difficult to say anything more than “we thank
you for your service to our country”. Lisa had a photograph of him that he autographed for us as a momentum for the
guild.

Phillip was gracious and thankful for the quilt----- though nowhere near as thankful as I am that there are servicemen like
Phillip Newlyn who are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms that we enjoy.

Thank you to each member who has worked on these many quilts, especially those for the wounded soldiers, and for all
the quilts that are given to needy souls. May all those recipients, like Phillip, find comfort in knowing that the VQG appre-
ciates and values their service to our country.

                                                   VQG CHALLENGE

Don't get this challenge mixed up with our UFO challenge--this one is due at the FEBRUARY VQG meeting! For those of
you who bought a kit, we hope you can find the time to finish a project to enter. You will have to deliver the finished project
to me at the February VQG meeting. They will be displayed at the meeting so everyone can vote on them. The results of the
vote will not be revealed until the Quilt Show in March--oh, the anticipation!

Here are the rules of the challenge--please follow them to the letter so you're not disqualified!
Remember our theme: "Threads Of Friendship".
1. You must use at least half of each of the fabrics in your kit.
2. You must use your thread in some way on the front of your project so we can see it.
3. Your project can be no larger than 120" in circumference. For example a 30" s 30" wall hanging (or its equivalent) would
be the largest project possible. There is no minimum size to feel free to make a smaller project.
4. You may embellish your project in any way you wish.
5. You may add up to 3 additional fabrics to the ones in your kit, no more.
6. Your project should have a label on the back which includes your name and the kit number (which is listed on the bottom
of your box).

Remember to fill out a entry form for our quilt show for your challenge quilt so we can have a beautiful display of all the
challenge quilts. Exact measurements aren't necessary, just estimate the approxi-
mate finished size.

If you have questions, email me at steeledome@gmail.com

                                                   UFO CHALLENGE

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope your holidays were fantastic!

At the January 27th meeting, we will have the latest "reveal" of our UFO challenge. If you signed up to finish your project,
please bring it and show it to everyone. If your #3 project is completely finished, you will be in a drawing for some fun
prizes.

A note to those of you who are not currently involved in this UFO challenge, you can join ANY TIME! All you need to do
is give me a list with a description of 10 unfinished projects you have in your sewing stash. We'll pick a number every other
month and you have 2 months to finish the project that correlates to that number on your list. There's no penalty for NOT
finishing it--you'll just have to look at that UFO for another month!

See you on the 27th!
