July Meeting Recap

In the News:

The Michael Miller challenge deadline has been extended to July 25th.  So there is still time to get those last minute challenge quilts/projects done! Big prizes this time.  You have one week! Go!

Medallion block challenge has started.  
We've changed up the rules a little bit.  If you don't want to make a medallion quilt, you don't have to.  It can be a traditional block quilt, or a row quilt or a Medallion quilt or anything else you can think of.  We are adding different challenge blocks to each month. So this month the challenge is to add a block/strip/border containing:

1:  Flying geese
2: Yo-yos.

If you are making a medallion quilt, add a border containing those elements. If you're doing a block quilt, make 2 or more blocks with those elements.  If you're doing a row quilt, your new row(s) should contain those elements.  The process is up to you.  This allows for more flexibility in the quilt you end up with.   You can do one or both elements, it's up to you!

State fair quilt submission deadline is approaching ~ Aug 7th.  Don't forget to sign up if you're planning on submitting a quilt. A complete Exhibitor handbook can be found here
