April 6 meeting recap

We had a great April meeting and are pleased to welcome a new member, Denise McCulloch! Lora shared some great work and demonstrated the ruler quilting technique she used on this gorgeous quilt. IMG_1958

Almost everyone had some show and tell; we’ve been busy!

Coming up we have our first mini-retreat sew day on April 30 at the Downtown Branch of the Alachua County Public Library. Stay tuned for a post with all the details and directions coming very soon!

We decided that we will work on the charity quilt challenge for QuiltCon. The theme is “playing with scale”; we are going BIG! The color palette and all the details are on the MQG website linked to above. We’ll share ideas and examples of blown-up motifs at the May meeting. If you have fabrics in the palette, please bring them to the meeting.
