The June 2017 meeting was a major success!
We had 44 members sign in. There were three guests, as follows:
- Louise from Port St Lucie, brought by Marya
- Joey from Port St Lucie, brought by Debbie K, Tonya & Jen
- Monique - who googled 'quilt guild' online and found us
What a joy to see friendly new faces!
Block of the Month
The June block of the month turned out bright and fun! Can't wait to see a finished project in a future show and tell. See pictures in the slide show above.
The June block of the month is another fun project! Some simple paper piecing makes an adorable bird. You can find the instructions on the blog here.
New Charity Project
Susan DiBartolo spoke with us about a need in Miami for donations to the Ryan's Case for Smiles Charity. This charity provides fun pillowcases to hospitalized children. You can read more about the charity on their website here. A blog post will be up shortly containing more details on how to get involved.
Susan would like to invite anyone interested to make pillowcases and bring them to the meetings - there will be a raffle and prize for those who get involved! More information to come.
