You will be given your partner’s information by our October General Meeting.
Post your completed basket photo by Dec. 2nd on IG #10yearsofSBAMQG AND send to firstname.lastname@example.org for our Sew and Tell on Dec. 7th
The basket swap theme is 10 — include the number 10 somewhere on your basket as a reminder of our anniversary!
Fill your basket with some goodies for your partner (chocolate, notions, fabric, etc.), please be mindful of any allergies or preferences they list on their submission.
There are so many good basket tutorials and patterns online. This is a list to help give ideas, but feel free to choose any basket that suits your and your swap partner’s preferences!
We welcomed Sarah Nishiura, who presented her lecture “Strings.” We were amazed by the history of weaving, fibers, ropes, architecture, and more, all leading to quilting. We are looking forward to her workshop “Deconstructing Designs” August 7th and 14th.
Our Multi-Technique Mono Challenge was due. We had 12 participants submit their photos. Look through our slides to see what cool techniques were used and the final pieces!
Thank you to our member spotlight, Karen Foster, for presenting her progress through quilting and improv. We voted on our design for our MQG Community Quilt and Laura Ryle’s submission for wonky stars won, we will start introducing the blocks and requesting help for making the quilt. Laura Ryle won our BOTEOM Splish Splash and Lori, Shauna, and Pat introduced the new BOTEOM due in September: To Be or Knot To Be.
We have presented a new schedule for in person and virtual meetings for July through September, including our September retreat. We will update our events page as we have more information!
