Tonight was an informal social meeting of the Great Lakes Modern Quilt Guild. We had a great meeting!
Thanks to Pam for opening her home to us and letting us meet on her back patio! It was delightful, despite the threats of rain. The weather held off for us just long enough. It started pouring shortly after I got home!
Here are the highlights of our meeting:
I forgot to take photos, but both Carolyn and Joanne brought versions of our challenge block they had sewn up already to show us. The block is so stunning! You're going to want to get in on this action and have a chance at winning the blocks. Get to work on making a block, if you haven't yet. Details can be found here, in the last blog post.
Speaking of winning blocks, Shannon has already sewn up all the blocks she won from our last challenge! Check it out!
Another member brought quilts she had made for a high school classmate's daughters. Her friend's husband had recently passed away. The guild member cut up the husband's shirts, and she made these quilts for her daughters, at her friend's request. They were so amazing, and the quilting was beautiful on them! I loved the design!
And thank you to Carolyn for prizes! She gave away some nice scraps of Alison Glass fabrics she had leftover from making her challenge block! Woo hoo! What a nice prize!
We discussed making a quilt for the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild and decided we would go for it. Watch for a post from Carolyn on specifics, if you'd like to contribute a block. We'd love your help on this one!
It was great seeing everyone! Looking forward to our next formal meeting in July!
