July's meeting was an extra small one of Jessica, Nancy, Madelynn, Susanne, and Angelica. But nevertheless we had fun!
Jessica made a few announcements:
Even though it's still Summer, the Christmas swap will be here before we know it. For this year's swap we will be bringing a quilted item. They can be made or purchased.
For August's meeting we will have Taylor doing a demo about sewing with kids.
And for those who'd like to attend we will have a board meeting on August 8th.
August's BOM was done by Jan and the block is called the "Bowtie". Link can be found on the blog post here.
After announcements we shared a few things. Nancy made this adorable Florence Flamingo quilt for herself. The flamingo pattern is by Elizabeth Hartman.
Angelica brought in this baby quilt that will be need a borders. She used all her favorite moon and star prints.
Jessica showed off her sewing skills with her Comicon cosplay jacket for her Evil Queen costume from Once Upon a Time for this weekend.
After our short Show and Tell we went ahead with our name badge sew in. We all made the tops and took them home to finish.
After working on our name badges we ended with our monthly raffle. Here were the winners:
Nancy won a Nancy Zieman book; Susanne won an embroidered feather pillow kit; and Angelica won a Moda charm pack.
The next meeting will be on August 15th. Hope to see you there! :)
