July 2018 Meeting


This Month's meeting had an AMAZING turn out! Apparently everyone wanted to join in on the fun from the Jelly Roll Race we had planned and advertised on our social media. So that meant we had our regulars, some members we hadn't seen in a while, and a bunch of guests who stopped by to check out what we are all about. :)

Jan started us off with some announcements. TO see those announcements you can reference the meeting minutes found here

To start off Show and Tell, Jan showed us this pillow she made while she was in Norway.



She showed us two quilts she made for her friend's 8yr old and 13 yr old. While working on our BOMs for the past few months, she'd made extra blocks for these quilts. 





Colleen finished this quilt she made from a block swap she was a part of on Flickr in 2010. She will be donating it to the Quilts of Valor.



Before she moved from San Francisco, Colleen did a workshop in Santa Cruz with Latifah Saafir 4 years ago and made this clamshell quilt.



Susan made her tree quilt based on @diaryofaquilter's tutorial. You can find her on Instagram.




She also made this wall hanging based on Melissa Averinos' "Making Faces with Melissa" (@melissaaverinos on Instagram).





Jessica created this charm pack challenge quilt made from the charm pack she won last month.



Maritza made this fun quilt from fabric she bought at quiltcon.




Maritza wanted to try new things so she made this stunning dog mini quilt using 5 different fabrics.



She had made 4 paper pieced pattern blocks and turned them into this cute wristlet.



She made this cute plushie from her stash. She had taken a class to complete this kit. Even though it proved to be incredibly difficult, it made it worth it to her once she saw her granddaughter laying on it and loving it. 



Linda made this quilt from the Dream Big Panel that she found on Hoffman's website.



Nancy quilted this for her sister. She used a UV light to quilt white on white.




This visitor named Jan quilted this for her aunt.



She also quilted these adorable Halloween panels.



And then after Show and Tell we started our Jelly Roll Race! 









Alanice (our youngest member who had started hers before this evening) was the first to complete her Jelly Roll Race Quilt. 




Our evening ended with our monthly raffle. Here were the winners:

Quilt pattern - Angelica Jones
Fat quarter bundle - Madelynn Macrunnel
Gift Card - Natalie Pollard

We hope to see you all (and our guests!) for our next month's meeting which will be held August Thursday August 16th.
