We had a very fun and busy meeting on May 9th. We celebrated Mother's Day in the style of High Tea and over-the-top hats, and we sang Happy Birthday to the May birthday ladies - Karol, Natalie, and Gina. Modern Minutes included a discussion, fabric samples, and a flier about Modern Low Volume Fabrics.
Elaine and Susan, your Block Lottery Committee, held the drawings for both April's and May's blocks. Natalie won April's Modern Log Cabins.
Cricket won the pile of Dutchman Puzzle blocks we made for May.
June's block is a wonky ROYGBIV log cabin. (Instructions will be available soon.)
Because Nona was the lone participant for the needlebook swap, we decided to postpone it for another to-be-determined date.
We are swapping very cool fabric in June. Tula Pink is the designer of choice. Please bring your swap fabrics all cut, folded, and in labeled zip-top bags to our next meeting. Instructions for cutting and folding can be found here. Please add a photo to our facebook group's Tula Pink album here. Make sure to click the button in the top left 'Add Photos'.
The guild is working hard on making blocks for the Fisher House charity quilt, the block design is the Dutchman's Puzzle using fabrics representing the emerald coast and has been named 'Birds on the Beach. For more information or to help our charity committee please email emeraldcoastmqg @ gmail.com with 'Fisher House' in the subject line.
Our next meeting will be held at the Pensacola Library 239 N Spring Street, on June 13th and during that meeting we will have a hands on Social Media Class. So bring you cell phones, tablets and lap tops so you can get in the know :)
The meeting will start at 10:30 and we will have a lunch and then free sew until 3:30.
