Hi All! Hope you are all surviving the weather. It is certainly July in the South. I say stay in and spoil your sewing machine with lots of attention. Here is the run down from the meeting last month.
-We were able to renew the church for the coming year. The dates for meetings are: July 26, Aug 30, Sept 27, Oct 25, Dec 6, Jan 31, Feb 28, Mar 28, Apr 25, May 30, Jun 27
-We talked about supporting the Orlando MQG with heart blocks in rainbow colors for the victims of Pulse. You can register online if you would like to donate or you can bring the hearts into the next meeting where Kelleigh will gather them and mail them for us as a group. The link for more information about this is at the Modern Quilt Guild website.
-We talked about Quiltcon and those who were going. If you are going, let us know what classes you signed up for. We would love to live vicariously through you!
-There is a new Quiltcon Charity Quilt submission, "Playing with Scale and How to Use It." We are going to talk about it at our July meeting. Read about the charity quilt for Quiltcon here and come with ideas!
-Carolyn brought in the Friendship Trays Newsletter that included an article about the placemat donations we make to them. It’s nice to see these are appreciated by those who are receiving them.
-Elections are coming in October, please speak up if you are interested in serving in any way. New terms start in January.
-Swap for July (this coming Tuesday!) – Bag with a vinyl see through pocket. There are several free patterns and many styles. Any "see through" bag is perfect. Bring one to share and take a new one home.
Pattern suggestions for the swap:
