September 2019 Meeting

Anniversary Meeting

You just can't beat Publix's Chantilly cake.

So much happened and so much to share!

Great discussions, great food and prizes were enjoyed by all. 

First off, Dress a Girl dresses are finished! Approximately 20-25 dresses were made. Thank you to all who sewed all these very important dresses and thank you Maureen for heading this up.  You ladies are amazing and so appreciated. <3

We had an Art Gallery Fabric Swap. Such beautiful selections we have to play with now:

Our Auction is coming up. Dates are November 15th through November 24. 

The Kona splash sewing machine cover challenge is due next month. I can't wait to see these!

Our door prizes were several bundles of the below fabric:

The September Block Lottery blocks:

Well done ladies!

Here is the October block for Block Lottery:

It is called Wall Block by Carolina Oneto and can be found on the Modern Quilt Guild web site as the March 2019 block study.
 It is so versatile!!

For Anniversary fun, we played BINGO! 

These were the bingo prizes with the basket full of goodies being the grand prize! 

Show and tell time:

Lauren had a lingerie bridal shower in Philly. Very cool!

For the October meeting, we will have a Quick Curve ruler class making a Pumpkin table runner. It will be given by Michelle Stewart. I can't wait for this class. $10 for our guild members.

Like I said, we were busy!! Whew! 

We are already planning for our December dirty Santa swap so be ready!

August Meeting

We had some great show and tell items. Even our Jr. member had some fun items to show:

Our Round Robin medallions are looking great!

We had a lesson on continuous bias binding. THIS is the thing to learn!!

The Block lottery blocks came out great and guess who won?? I think Natalie is cheating except that others pull the tickets. LOL

So many choices
when aligning
these blocks!!

Congrats Natalie!

Next Month's block lottery is called "Fresh Flowers"

We have continued with our contributions to the church mission. They are always looking for baby items, easy open foods or whatever!

June is Coming Up Tulips!

We had an awesome June Meeting!
Take a look below:

Our June block lottery was beautiful! Even our junior member, Athena got in on the action and won! It was her first win. Congrats winners!

July's Block lottery looks very interesting! SO versatile and of course we have an awesome teacher showing us all the options.

A beach basket was the raffle of the month. Beautiful beachy fabrics and fun goodies to boot!

Time for Show and Tell:

Gorgeous pieces ladies!

Another submission from Wendi for some very deserving Veteran:

Love it!!

We have started a round robin and the medallions are awesome:

We judged a mock art show from a trunk show given by SAQA member Natalie:

We all chose our favorites, narrowed them down to 10 and gave them points as shown below.

This was not only fun but we learned so much. I think we have a better idea now of how judging works. This trunk show was very cool. Many uses of mixed media, fabric dying, and different uses of thread. We also saw how different the binding can be. I know I learned a lot! 

This is a sample that Lisa wanted to use very badly! LOL
Such a great meeting ladies! Thank you!
