 September Meeting Recap

We dedicated our September meeting to work on our 2023 QuiltCon Charity Outreach quilt, designed by Michele K.  Members assembled and distributed block kits in August. Completed blocks were returned and we sewed the quilt top together.

 Thank you for all members who showed up and helped out.

Our quilt will be entered in the QuiltCon chapter display and offered for sale, with the proceeds directed to a charity in the Atlanta area.  QuiltCon, the Modern Quilt Guild's annual conference, will be held February 23-26, 2023 in Atlanta. Visit QuiltCon 2023 for more information.
