Fabulous Folding for Fabricaholics Meeting - May Meeting Minutes!

Columbus Modern Quilt Guild - May 17
Big month for announcements! Read on for the nitty gritty details:
·         Meet Up – We’re going to be meeting with other Modern Quilt Guilds after the NQA annual show on June 16. We’ll be at the "Big Bar on 2" (clever name) in the Hyatt on the second floor (see I told you it was clever) from 4:00-6:00. Everyone will be able to order drinks and munchies from the menu.  Should be a great time to compare notes and meet up with other quilting fanatics.  Various quilt shops are being contacted to contribute door prizes too. 
·         Fabric Shop Road Trip – Scheduled for July 14 which is prior to our next meeting so stay tuned to our blog for more information. We’ll be going to Fabric Shack, Lavender Street Quilts, Sewn Studio, and IKEA. (Woo hoo!)
·         Retreat – We’re looking at scheduling a retreat with the Michigan, Toledo, and Chicago Modern Quilt Guilds. If anyone knows of a central location, be sure to let Dana know.
Dresses were collected for Little Dresses for Africa. Thanks to everyone who contributed! 

Cristin gave a great demo on fabric folding. Now everyone’s stash can look as neat as hers. Take a look at for more organizational tips. 

Kathy G. and Stacey have coordinated a Wonky Paint Chip Challenge (click the link for instructions!). Should be great fun. If you’d like to join in, finished projects aren’t due until October so you have plenty of time to get your paint chip and directions. 

Next CMQG meeting will be July 26 – Don’t forget: This is not our usual third Thursday so mark those calendars.
 See you all at the Meet Up at the Hyatt Bar on June 16! 


  1. I had thought I could attend the NQA and after party, but upon looking at the calendar realized our trip to DC will be making it impossible. I'll see everyone at the July meeting. Or even better, the Road Trip!

  2. Will miss you at the NQA Meet up. Lots of great sponsors and door prizes.
