August meeting Recap

This months meeting was held at the Riverfront on 1st in Corvallis.  It was so nice to sit outside on the grass and enjoy the beautiful summer weather.  
Reminder that we will be at the Corvallis Farmer’s market this Saturday (Aug 30th) in lieu of our regular sew day.  The farmer’s market starts at 9. Members should be there between 8-8:30am for set up.

Medallion block challenge:  
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:  Embroidery
2:  Circles

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!

The swap theme for the next meeting is still 'Fire and Ice' as we only have one participant this past month.
