July Meeting Recap

We met in July to discuss several methods to hand applique as led by the always informative, Barbara Cain. After the presentation, which can be found here, we split into small groups and moved around the room to try out the different methods outlined. 

Here is Nikki showing a modern block she created using hand applique

Some other takeaways from the meeting were:

  • It's time to pay your annual dues! Please head over to the membership info page on this blog for details on how to pay. Payment is due by August 1st.
  • We saw the last of our Inspiration Challenge blocks this month. Bring your completed quilt using your blocks to the September meeting for a chance to win a basket full of great prizes!
  • We will be kicking off a new challenge and swap all in one next month. To participate, bring to the August meeting a sandwich bag full of scraps that you would like a fellow guild member to make you a mini from.
