Meeting Recap

We had a great meeting at the Stitchin' Post last week.

It was our Cool Colors challenge due date, and we saw some beautiful quilts! Yesterday, I submitted our group exhibit application for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show.

most of the members who made quilts made it to the meeting. Don't they look great all together??

We also saw our quilted (Thanks Corni!) QuiltCon charity quilt, which will be taken and displayed at QuiltCon West in February 2016, and donated here locally next year. Kristin has led this project, with the improv feather design tutorial, and assembling the top, and she will attach the binding.

UFO Challenge
This is the second month of the UFO (unfinished object) challenge. Remember, to participate in this challenge all you have to do is make a list of 10 unfinished objects that you're working on. Feel free to join in at any time! Each month we'll draw a number and that's the project in your list to finish by the next month. We do the reveals for finished projects and the drawing for the next month at the Third Tuesday meeting.

Each finished project will get you a ticket to a final drawing for great prizes at the end of the challenge. Bring your finished project to the grand finale and get an additional ticket.

Due at the Third Tuesday Meeting in November: Project #7. This due date was extended until the Third Tuesday meeting in December. We'll be meeting at Dogwood Cocktail Cabin for this meeting.

Due at the Third Tuesday Meeting in December: Project #5.
