Dear PTQG Quilters,

Spring is finally here. I am enjoying weeding my flower garden and watching my flowers peeking out of the ground. They are growing so quickly. I have finally made it (weeding) to the corner of my fence. It is slow going when you have a bad back. Still have a lot more weeding to go.

PTQG had a great members meeting in April. We had our 40th Anniversary cake and paper piecing rulers to give out. Our speaker, Ruth Robin was excellent. I took the Sunday class and I really enjoyed it. I especially liked her method of doing perfect mariners compass squares.

I received an e-mail today from our insurance representative. We seem to be e-mailing the insurance a lot. I am e-mailing them every time I get a request for an insurance certificate which is often. I am thinking that most of you do not know or realize that you do not need the certificate to be covered. Once we pay the premium we are all covered no matter what. The certificate is only needed if you have quilt meetings, quilt shows, or area meetings where the agency/hall won’t allow you to be there without the certificate (proof of insurance). We are causing them a lot of unnecessary paperwork.
Some of you are requesting so many of them that I, myself wonder what is going on.

I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful weather we are having. It has been a long winter for many of us.

Wishing you happy gardening and quilting days ahead.
