There were 5 Show and Tells.
The Nametag (7 entries) and Color (3 entries) Challenges were revealed tonight. Drawings from participants produced winners, who got prizes.
The June, July and August events were reviewed: Sewing Saturdays June 3, July 1 and Aug 5 at the Bailey Cove Library from 9 AM to 5 PM.
The Make-It-Modern Challenge was issued; we will take a traditional pattern (handed out tonight) and make it modern. We will make a mini or a mug rug, which is due in August.
Upcoming quilt shows and conferences were reviewed. QuiltCon 2019 will be in Nashville, and we agreed to pursue presentation of our “What is Modern Quilting?” there. Lisa produced and presented an excellent overview of features that may make a quilt modern. She had pictures of quilts to show us that exemplified each feature. And she had a handout. Very interesting and thorough.
We presented the surprise group-made quilt to Diane for her husband. See pictures elsewhere on line…it was gorgeous, and she was most pleased and grateful.
