Block lottos, donations, swaps, ideas oh my!! Another jam packed meeting full of great content and ideas for the future. Plans are currently in the works for a group picnic and swap, a new block lotto with a bonus block for a community outreach quilt, an art quilt mini challenge, and a committee formed for the Quilt Con community outreach project. Phew! I need a nap!!
Eileen made this Noodlehead Range Backpack, with fabrics she picked up at Old Spool as well as the pattern. It’s on display at the shop in case you’d like to make one too!
Just a few short months ago I asked the group if they’d be interested in either a Queen Bee or a Block Lotto. The consensus was for a block lotto. New, and very enthusiastic, member Brooke has taken on this challenge of coming up with a block every month and she’s doing a fabulous job! She is taking full advantage of the MQG website Block Study feature, as well as researching and coming up with some more traditional blocks. In April we made some scrappy double plus blocks and this month a traditional sailboat!
This has quickly become a really fun part of our monthly meetings. Congratulations to Mary Ellen on winning this bevy of boats and the JSMQG for our newest member Brooke, a most welcome addition to our group!!!
