We had a great meeting last night! Thanks all for coming!

Hopefully we'll get to see some of these at Quilt! Knit! Stitch! in Portland in August.

COMQG Banner
  • Make a block for the COMQG Banner! The banner will be a small, rectangular quilt, with our logo in the center, and blocks that we make as a border. 
  • Kayla distributed packets of fabric and instructions for making a block. The completed blocks need to be returned to Kayla on June 3rd or before. 
  • If you weren't at the meeting, and want a fabric packet, please contact Kayla to receive yours. It will be fun if all our members can make a block.
  • The fabrics chosen are all solids, or textured solids, in cool colors, and the banner is going to look great, and be truly a collaborative effort.
