October meeting recap!

Hello all! Time for another meeting recap. First, we'd like to remind members that we are now accepting dues for 2019.

This month was the final chance to turn in blocks for the QuiltCon Charity Quilt, with the theme of small piecing. We had lots of blocks come in!

Modern FMQ QAL: October

I don't know about you, but October (and our meeting tomorrow night - Wed. Oct. 3) snuck up on me! This is the LAST themed month for the Modern FMQ QAL. Please see the QAL page for further instructions on putting your quilt together.

This month's theme is geometrics. It's kind of a catch-all category - try something new with the suggested motifs, or quilt your own geometrics. At this point, you've probably got a few to choose from!

CJMQG members - we will be having a show and tell of samplers at the March 2019 meeting. Finish your sampler to be entered to win a big prize! Thank you so much to everyone for your excitement and participation!
