March Meeting Recap

Our March meeting saw a LOT of quilts! We shared our challenge projects for Jessica Levitt's Cascade fabric, plus the usual quilt-a-long blocks, bee blocks, and show and tell.

Most of our business is now contained in our newsletter. If you'd like to be in on all the latest, please sign up on the left sidebar! Members are already included on the email list. This is a totally different email list than updates from this blog!

What an awesome picture of most of our current bee members with the blocks they made for Teddi! I will post the individual blocks on the blog soon.

-We recapped both QuiltCon (February in Austin, TX) and QuiltFest of NJ XI (where we had an exhibit of modern quilts). Generous attendees of QuiltCon raffled off some swag (more to come at the April meeting!)

-Jessica's Cascade fabric challenge - more entries. The contest ends tomorrow! Members had to make a quilted item with her fabric. Thank you to Jessica and to Windham Fabrics for providing fat eighths and scraps of fabric!

March Quilt-A-Long blocks:

 Great job everyone! Let's keep the momentum going in April! So many people are participating (even more than in the photo) - it's great! :)

-We held our 2nd Great Fabric Destash - members brought in fabric and notions that they wanted to trade or sell to other members. It was fun and I hope next time we have even more participants! We can hold another in the fall.

Show and Tell:

 Laura and her astounding 3-D butterflies (thank you again for all of these meeting pictures!)

 Liz and her beauteous Cotton and Steel

 Nicole and her cute Minecraft pillow

 Janneke and her lovely tulips

Lori and her bold, beautiful fabric mixing

Sonia and her thoughtful improv piecing

 Michelle and her stunning rainbow
