We'll be swapping our Make Me a Mini challenge quilts at this months meeting! If you are unable to be at the meeting please contact your swap partner directly to get them their mini before or after the meeting.

All quilt blocks for the QuiltCon Charity quilt should be turned in at this meeting or at our Sew Day October 14th at St John's Church. We will be assembling the quilt top during the sew day.

Here's a note about our program this month:

Through a series of design prompts and exploratory exercises, guild member Diane DeNardo will lead each of us in designing a modern quilt block that maps a story from our life.  After exploring our unique stories through words and simple pencil sketches, we will have been taken through one avenue of artistic exploration.  That exploration will result in a unique and personally designed quilt block. Discussion will focus on how color choice, placement, texture and stitching can bring the story to life and reflect the characteristics of modern quilting.  Participants will be encouraged to share their story and hand drawn quilt block at the workshop or at a future Pgh MQG show and tell.

Supply list:
Favorite art journal, sketch pad or doodle pad.
Pen or pencil for sketching
Colored pencils or markers.
NOTE:  If you are running late or forget, Diane will have extras on hand.
