October Meeting Summary

October - Second Anniversary Celebration meeting

It was so fun seeing you all at the October meeting! We all had a great time with amazing food and door prizes plus...
Paint Chip Challenge...we saw a lot of creative projects and no two were alike. But now it's time to announce the winners (drum roll please!)
and the winners are:
Columbus Modern Quilt Guild Wonky Challenge Winners
Cristin won best use of paint chip. She did an awesome table runner.
Columbus Modern Quilt Guild Wonky Challenge Winners
Jaclyn won viewer's favorite with a really cute twin size quilt. She said it started out small and then kept growing.
Columbus Modern Quilt Guild Wonky Challenge Winners
Catie won best use of wonky with a great little wall hanging.

Congrats guys! 

We were so busy partying we forgot to play any games. So, we'll play games at our November meeting, on November 15th

Musical Fabric Stash
Each person in the circle starts with 1 yard of fabric.  The music begins and you’ll pass the fabric around in a circle.  Once the music stops, you’ll cut the fabric in your hands in half.  You keep half and then the next round starts.  We’ll continue to pass and slash the fabrics until we end up with scrap-sized pieces left.  The fabric you keep each round becomes yours to take home, so you’ll leave with a yard of various prints.
What to bring:
-          As many 1 yard cuts of fabric as you’d like (we can do multiple smaller rounds or a few really large rounds).  Fabric should be quilting-weight cotton with a modern design. (We are the modern quilt guild after all!)
-          Scissors
Strip Poker
Building on the fun from our 1stAnniversary party, strip poker is back again!  We’ll play rounds of “poker” (highest single card wins).  Each round you’ll bet a 2 ½ “ fabric strip.  Winner takes all!
What to bring:
-          As many 2 ½ “ x WOF strips as you’d like.  Jelly rolls work great for this, but you can also cut your own.
