February Meeting Highlights

Fusing in February was this month’s program, with Lise leading the way. Members brought colorful fabrics to fuse and cut into bright blocks for March’s block of the month.

Business:

~ We will be displaying our modern quilts in the Quiltfest Destination Savannah show March 27-30 in Savannah, GA. CHECK YOUR EMAIL for important instructions and dates!

Our Raffle Quilt, “Fiesta”, was on display at February’s meeting! Isn’t it gorgeous? Many many thanks to everyone who contributed, and to Quilter’s Dream Batting for supplying the batting. A special thanks to Lise for pulling it all together, Malinda for her quilting skills and Katie for being willing to bind it. Great job, Ladies!

~ March’s program will be Mid-Atlantic Show & Tell. We want to hear all about the workshops, classes and lectures you attended! Plus, bring your goodies and share your plans for new fabrics/supplies. 

~ We will Swap modern Mug Rugs. A Mug Rug is a small quilt just the right size for your mug of something yummy and a small snack. They are also the perfect size to experiment with a new technique, use up scraps or try a new fabric. They can be hand embellished, fused, pieced, bound or turned…anything goes. Mug rugs come in many sizes – if you’re lost a good starting place is 7″ x 10″. You can visit Joy’s Pinterest board for some ideas. Have fun!
~ Don’t forget to come to our new location

Happy Sewing!
