Hello Modern Quilters!
I’ve been waiting all year for this month’s meeting! Come to Kelly’s Bakery at 6pm on Tuesday June 26 for a celebration of our first exhibit! We’ll view our beautiful minis and have treats from Kelly’s. There will be a short meeting but no program.
Everyone who has a quilt hanging will be entered into the drawing for the Culcita Box which has 12 Tula Pink fat quarters!
We’ll have a special fabric raffle with 6 half yards of Cotton and Steel and solid fabric! That’s 3 yards of fabric, quilters!
Registration for the July workshop with Lynn Carson Harris will continue this month.
Nancy Powell will be presenting the next set of directions for the BNMQG Mystery Quilt that she has designed. There’s plenty of time to join in!
