November 2015 Meeting Recap

The SBAMQG thanks Hart’s Fabrics for hosting another terrific meeting this week!

Business included the latest information on our Maria Shell workshop, which is happening this Saturday. We are expecting to have a great day learning all of Maria’s secrets. Lynne reminded us that the deadline for annual membership dues is approaching so please watch for your Paypal invoice, which will be sent out soon. We also talked about a few big things that will be happening at our December meeting. First, we will be doing our annual fabric gift swap. If you want to participate in this fun activity, please show up with a wrapped package containing one yard of fabric to swap. You can bring a one yard cut or any combination of cuts that equals one yard. Second, refreshments will be potluck style, so please bring something to share, keeping neatness in mind out of respect for our host shop. Third, we will be holding the election for new officers for 2016. Several people were nominated tonight for positions on the board but, if you are interested in running for a spot, please let the current board know by November 30, so we can get your name on the ballot before our December 1st meeting.

The highlight of tonight’s meeting was the big reveal of our small challenge quilts. In September, participants blindly selected a fat quarter from one bag and a slip of paper containing a modern quilting design concept from another bag. The challenge was to make a small quilt to demonstrate one or more of the design features that are often found in modern quilting. Our talented members came up with some creative solutions to the challenge and we had a blast viewing them. We hope to show them off in public in the near future. Here is a look at our proud quilters:

Of course we had a few lovelies in our regular Sew and Tell, including a Fibonacci finish and this awesome log cabin:
