We had a great meeting on Tuesday. If you need more information about locations, or where to sign up for any event, look at your email, sent to members. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
-We distributed fabric with our COMQG logo. Make a nametag with this logo fabric, and wear it to our first meeting in April, and you'll be eligible to win a QuiltCon goodie bag! Trust me, it's pretty awesome!
-keep wearing your nametags at future meetings, we'll have giveaways for people wearing nametags only.
-we voted, and cool colors won!
-due date is October 1st.
-Challenge requirements: use entirely cool colors. A pop of warm colors is acceptable, but the quilt should be primarily cool colors. The quilt should be lap size: approximately 50-70 inches by 50-70 inches.
