Here are the highlights from our October Meeting:
We began with a mixer game, meeting people we didn’t know yet and talking about how we started quilting.
- We officially voted in our officers as follows:
Vice President: Gretchen
Secretary : Samantha
Treasurer: Julie P.
- We are still revising our by laws and will discussing them at the November meeting.
- UFO Challenge
You can challenge yourself to finish up to 4 UFO’s this quilt year. It’s a dollar buy in for each UFO. The first is due at the December Meeting. If you bring in your completed UFO (or a pic) you will get your dollar back, a raffle ticket and a certificate of completion. If you don’t get it done on time, your dollar goes into the money pot that will be raffled off at the end of the quilt year.
If you would like to participate, fill out the sign up form at the next meeting!
- Year Challenge
Select one ‘traditional’ block and use it as inspiration to create a Modern piece. No minimum size. Enlarge it, skew it, color it, repeat it…whatever you like..let’s see YOUR vision of modern.
Due at our April meeting
December: We will be swapping mug rugs.
February: We will be swapping fabric scraps.
Many of us made up single color blocks for a Mother’s Hope quilts which will be put together and gifted to women going through postpartum depression.
We will be making and collecting walker bags to show our appreciation to the Fairport Baptist Home. Nancy is writing up a pattern for us to use. If you don’t want to wait, feel free to use an online tutorial or pattern. Please be sure to make some in manly fabric, too!
Here are a couple examples members made up.
- Modern Quilt Library
We are organizing our own Modern Quilt Library. Currently we have 2 books in our collection. Andrea has graciously volunteered to be librarian. If you have any modern quilt books to donate, feel free to bring them to the next meeting.
- Show and Tell
Always a big part of our meeting. We have so many talented members and I love seeing everyone’s projects.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the November 13th meeting!
