Meeting June 22, 2023 at 6 PM

Whetstone Library

19 people attended.  

The meeting was opened by Leigh asking each person to say their name and asked the question have you sewn a flange binding?   About 50% of the group had used this binding in the past.   Leslie is going to demonstrate the construction of a flange binding at the meeting.

2023 dues of $10 are now due.   Cash only.

Flange binding demonstration Leslie presented a demo on flange binding.   Directions are posted on website.

Pin cushion swap – 9 people participated in the pincushion swap.  Many different varieties of pincushions were available.   See FB for pictures.

Challenges – Next challenge due at August 24 meeting.  Bonnie did a presentation on turning a photo into a pattern to make a quilting project.   This can have a realistic, abstract or impressionist look to it.  She discussed the materials and strategies she uses to complete this type of project.   Her notes will be posted on the website.  

Block raffle The improv Christmas tree block was this month’s block raffle.  9 people brought about 75 blocks.   Susan was the winner of all the blocks.   We look forward to see you quilt made with these.

July meeting  all those that are interested in making a ironing board TV tray,   please bring a wooden tv tray,

Some batting and fabric to cover the tray.   Leigh will bring a staple gun and construction will take place at the meeting. 

August fabric swap  will be Allison Glass fabric.   One yard fabric but into fat eighths.  

Show and Tell – 9 members shared their projects.   See FB for pictures.

Instead of a mystery quilt this year we are going to be doing a sew along quilt. We will all be working on a string quilt. Each month you will be bring one or more blocks in to show the club at the monthly meeting. There are no rules for what method you follow just that you complete one block each month.  Some Themes are scrappy, rainbow, same color family, and selvages. Another way to help your design is to look up #stringquilts on Instagram. 

Kathy Gordon will be hosting a quilt show at Innis House at Inniswood Metro Park during October.   See Inniswood website for open hours of Innis House.   Kathy will host a meet the artist on October 15, 2023 from 2 to 4 pm.
