May Meeting Recap

Table runner Swap

Corvallis Modern Quilt guild welcomed two new members this month - Welcome to Camille and Glory and to our first time visitor Peggy!
We are growing! and we're pretty excited about it!

Next months Swap theme is Black and white and accent color of your choice.
Bring an item that fits this description in a brown paper bag to swap with a fellow CMQG'r at next months meeting. This is a blind swap.

Connie, our prez, gave a report about the Lebanon trip.

Our challenge for next month ~ Bring a finished center block of your choice for a challenge quilt.
We will be adding onto this over the next few months. This will be your quilt, so make it however you like. Connie will be challenging us to add to it over the year. Details at the next meeting.
