Library update -
Thank you for all that loaned quilts for the display. We will be setting up a display again next June. Let’s come up with a great theme and start working on it. The library patrons loved it.
We will be making a word quilt for the library. Each person will pick a word and make it - please, solid and mottled blenders only. No prints or calicos.
Donation Block quilt - Amanda showed off two tops almost done and the blocks for a third. She is one blue block short...
The current donation block is a pinwheel. Some of Amanda's friends made several and mailed them to her to get us started.
Color Challenge voting - we had four entries for our first challenge. Heather and Rachel made mini quilts for the Alzheimer Art Quilt Initiative, Fern made a snappy pouch and Karl made a happy sushi quilt top. The group voted and Lael won.
Next Challenge - bags. The only requirement is that they include either piecing b patchwork and/or quilting. Deb brought in patterns to look at for inspiration. The bags are due at the September meeting.
