We had another just wonderful meeting of the guild! Below are minutes and photos from the meeting.
Everyone brought their blocks from our block challenge we did last month. Check out all the beautiful blocks!
We drew a winner...and Lisa won! What a beautiful quilt this will make! Thanks to all who participated in the challenge!
Judy had completed her quilt top with the pieces she won at the July meeting. She was able to make a queen sized quilt and plans to use it as a summer quilt. Looking good, Judy! Love the piano key border!
a. Presentation by Carolyn
Paper Piecing—Kaleidoscope Block by Alex Anderson
b. Logo—We reviewed some ideas that Holly’s son, Dylan, developed. We had a few suggestions for changes but really appreciated his general ideas.
c. Need for Program Committee Members—Elaine offered to help Pam.
d. Please make a nametag for our next meeting, if you haven’t already.
e. Donations for door prizes. If anyone has things to donate, please let Pam know. Stephanie, Pam and Evelyn donated today’s prizes. Thank you!
f. We are looking for a location to meet nearer to Kalamazoo, since most of our members seem to be from that area. We checked with members present and everyone agreed that this was a good plan. Holly will be checking into possible venues.
Finally, we had show and tell! Ready for a quilt parade? :-)
And this table runner.
We had tons of fun. Another inspiring meeting!
Next meeting: Our next meeting will be on November 23rd at Bernina’s on Portage Road in Portage, MI. We will begin with a 10 am, then members are encouraged to stay for a sew-in that will last until about 5 pm. Please bring your own machine, supplies and rotary cutter. Mats and ironing supplies are provided. You can bring your own project to work on and/or try some curved piecing after Stephanie’s tutorial.
