August meeting recap

Hello quilty friends! It's time for another meeting recap post!

We had several announcements and reminders that CJMQG members can find in our newsletter and on BigTent. Reminder that the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza is September 15-18, and that nonmember registration is open for two upcoming workshops and our fall retreat. We discussed location and pricing possibilities for having a second retreat in 2017, and talked about our options for 2017's QAL/BOM.

Blocks for our QuiltCon charity quilt are due by the September meeting, but some have been finished already!
