May Meeting Recap

At this meeting:

-We swapped low volume mug rugs! Many of our members swapped 6" x 10" bricks of low volume fabric in April, and now we are using them. Beautiful! Great participation, everyone!

-We started the Cloud 9 Cirrus Solids Mini Quilt Challenge, which is sponsored by Cloud 9 Fabrics. All information was given at the meeting and later sent out in our guild newsletter. Mini quilts are due at the August meeting - you have all summer! Can't wait to see what you make, and thank you to Cloud 9!

Members received 6 fat eighths of solids. The bundle below will be a prize in our WIP It Up contest in January!

-The Cloth Pocket, a modern fabric shop in Austin, Texas, sponsored our meeting. Thank you for sending door prizes! Amy and Felix were so excited to win! Don't forget that this shop offers a 20% discount for MQG members - email me for the code.

-Janneke taught us how to sew selvages and showed off some of her beautiful makes. Thank you for the informative and entertaining presentation, Janneke!

Kathy also brought a selvage quilt to share. So much inspiration!

-Our next bee has filled up! We also shared more house blocks for this month's queen bee:

-We shared our May Quilt-A-Long blocks! Check out the post Neva wrote up for June here.
