May Meeting Recap

Please accept my profuse apologies on the lateness of this recap post! Our next meeting is.. tomorrow night. Life got in the way.

Reminders for members: registration for upcoming workshops and our retreat is ongoing, please check Bigtent for details. We need your Pantone challenge quilts for exhibitions, so please bring them in at the June meeting if you haven't yet. And finally, we voted to have a meeting in July, so we'll see you on the 10th!

At this meeting, finished 2016 Guild Bee quilts were due! Most of these had already been brought in for Show and Tell, so we chose not to photograph them again. But here's Neva's!
