October Meeting

This month's meeting was a little on the small size, but fun nevertheless. :)

Jan started off with some announcements:

Our dues will be going up from $35 to $40 in 2019. If you're joining after June it'll be $25 for the last half of the year. Next year's dues are to be paid by the January 2019 meeting.  

For those who wanted to nominate anyone for the board, we collected nominations at the meeting. Next year's nominees will be announced at next month's meeting and voted on at December's meeting. 

The QuiltCon charity quilt meeting will be postponed and details will be in an email from Jessica very soon.


Madelynn did the BOM for October. It's the August BOM for the Boulder MQG. The original blog post can be found here



Linda gave an Applique demo. She touched on Hawaiian Applique and 2 Fabric Applique. She showed us wall hangings she's made using patterns by Nancy Lee Chong from the Pacific Rim Quilt Company. (www.pacificrimquilt.com)











 Jan started off Show and Tell by showing us the Jelly Roll Race quilt she'd finished. It'll be donated to the guild's charity. 



Nancy quilted Jan's QuiltCon 2-color quilt challenge entry for 2019. Jan used the same 2 blocks in the entire quilt! :)




Madelynn brought in her completed quilted Charity quilt to turn in. It was her first time on the long arm and she did great!



Debbie (who was our guest) made the Beauteous quilt kit which she purchased from Needle in a Fabric Stash a few months ago.





Linda's friend started a log cabin quilt, made herself a small one, then sent her the rest of the strips for Linda to make this huge quilt!







We ended our meeting with the monthly raffle. Here were the winners:

Linda won a Fat quarter Bundle of Me+You, Susan won the Primitive Gatherings Gift Card, and Nancy won The Men Behind the Quilts Calendar.




Don't forget our next board meeting is November 8th and our next meeting is November 15th. Hope to see you all there!
