January 2016 Meeting Recap

Hello Modern Quilters,

The January meeting was fun and frantic as promised! Check out the Block Lotto page for the new directions and photos of the winners–Marge, Kris Z and Stormy. This was a first, we had 48 blocks turned in so we picked three winners.

We welcomed two new members, Julie D and Teresa A, which brings us to 54 members! Anne U led us in some creativity exercises and Vickie A and Viv B announced some wonderful opportunities for our members.

Viv’s guild in Peoria is sponsoring a bus trip to the International Quilt Festival in Rosemont on April 7. The bus will stop at Schnuck’s in Normal to pick up riders. The trip is $44 for the bus ride, your ticket and a program. Contact Viv at sosew-7828@sbcglobal.net to sign up or for more information.

Vickie’s Ottawa guild is sponsoring the first ever Frond Fabric Challenge! It’s a neat opportunity and looks like fun! Here is the info you’ll need and an entry form.

Member Cheryl Adam gave a wonderful program with an insider’s look into working with fabric designers/companies and designing quilts for them. She talked about her process and gave tips and encouragement for designing quilts of our own.  Thanks Cheryl!

And now…Show and Tell! And there was a lot! Our members have been busy!

 

See you next month!

Keep quilting modern!
