March Meeting Recap

Hello Modern Quilters,

If you missed the meeting last night you have some catching up to do! There are all kinds of exciting things happening in the guild.

Cindy R gave a program on modern paper piecing and had lots of tips and examples to share. Here’s one that lots of people were interested in. Check this link  for a free download of the pattern.

The 2016 Modern Mystery Quilt challenge has begun!

Ann G designed this herself and told us a little bit about it last night. You’ll find the first set of directions on the member’s page at the top. (I sent a separate email with the password for this page.)

 Lori F is our March Member Spotlight quilter. Read about her here.

Block Lotto winners, Lori L and Marilyn donated all 30 of their blocks to out service project! Thank you both!

The new block for Lotto is a minimalist disappearing 9 patch. Here are the directions. I love the colors!

The latest news on the service project….members donated 56 blocks last night!  We now have a total of 261 blocks ready to be made into quilts. That’s pretty impressive considering we started less than a month ago! At the Service Sew In on April 16 we’ll begin sewing them together. We’ll meet from 9 to 3 at our regular meeting place, Christ Lutheran Church. Email me if you have questions or can help with set up or goodies.

 

And of course I saved everyone’s favorite for last…Show and Tell!  There were finished UFOs, lotto quilt finishes, Project 48 blocks, bags, dyed fabric and more!
