If you missed our last meeting you missed a fun one! Here is what you missed! Crystal challenged us to make a new name tag for a chance to win a drawing. She made one to show us two meetings ago...a few people rose to the challenge and made these beauties!
facebook page here. If you have not been there, check it out. We love to see what you are working on and ooh and aah over your quilts, sewing or other crafts!
You may remember the cute birdie quilt with the free pattern online from a few posts ago. Bev got right on it and made some blocks. She is planning on putting it in the small quilt auction on October 3rd. I hope no one wants it but me since I have not started making any birds yet! I hope you are making something for our annual fundraiser too. Invite your friends to come October 3rd--Crystal says it is a great way to shop for Christmas!
August 15- Helen Robinson for Sew Kind of Wonderful will be our guest. Simply Modern Quilting Magazine has one of their gorgeous designs on the cover of their newest edition.
