October Meeting

Unfortunately, there are no pictures from this past meeting, but here's a summary of what we talked about...

**The November and December meetings are different than our usual meeting time. We're meeting on Friday, November 18 at 2 pm, and then Friday, December 16 at 2 pm.**

Submissions for the Modern Quilt Guild Showcase for the 2012 Fall Market and Festival will be accepted January 6 - March 2, 2012. Details can be found here.

The Flying Needles Quilt Show is taking place March 1-3. Submissions are accepted until January 12, 2012. More details here.

We announced our first swap! It's a scrap swap. This means that for our November meeting, if you'd like to participate in the swap, bring in a sandwich bag filled with scraps. We'll exchange those scraps and bring the finished products to the December meeting and exchange them back to the original owner of the scraps. The main thing to keep in mind about this swap, is to keep the items made out of the scraps SMALL! The holidays are a busy time, and we don't want anyone to feel like they have too much on their plate. So some ideas are coasters, mug rugs, potholders, coffee sleeves, mini quilt, etc. The only other rule is that after you receive your scraps, and you talk with your partner about what they'd like to receive, you may add one fabric (as much as needed) to the scraps. This additional fabric must be in keeping with the theme or the tone of the scraps you're working with.

(If you're unfamiliar with mug rugs, here's a post explaining them)

And that's basically it! I unfortunately had to leave the meeting early, so I missed out on Show and Tell, but I heard it was great.

Once again, if you have questions about anything, or want to be added to the email list, leave a comment here, or email emeraldcoastmqg@gmail.com.

Hope to see you later this month!
