July 2018 Meeting Recap – Potluck & Show and Tell

The July Meeting was our annual potluck dinner at Fraser Valley Heritage Park in Mission. We had a quick business meeting while we ate and then lots of socializing and show and tell.

Modern Quilt Guild Charity Challenge Update – Laraine

We washed the quilt with no problems and it has been delivered to the school in Abbotsford. They were very pleased with it and called it ‘a work of art’.

Jean has kindly offered to organize the charity challenge quilt for the coming year. More information coming in the fall!

Supporting the guild in the coming year – Marilyn

It takes many hands to keep the group running! We encourage people to team up so that there is always backup and the work is lighter.

We are particularly still looking for someone to be the Secretary/Communications. Hedda has done this for two years and will be right beside you while you learn the ropes. Everything is set up and it’s not hard to learn, but it is important. Please talk to Hedda or any member of the exec team for more information.

Welcome – Barb

Welcome to our several guests tonight!

Community quilts – Joanne

The community quilt block for the summer is wonky strips in one colour plus white. The block finishes at 6.5 by 24.5 inches. Looks great scrappy, in solids, patterns or a mix and is very quick and fun. We will collect blocks at the September meeting. Look for the tutorial on Facebook.

What’s coming up – Joan & Christine

August meeting – trunk show with Amy Dame from Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild.

September meeting – Anniversary party

October meeting – trunk show with Sheila Andrews & a dying workshop (8 spots only, more info coming soon.)

Show & Tell and Door Prizes

Thanks to everyone who brought something they made to show! The door prizes were loads of fun and happily received by their recipients.
