Community Service : Kits are available to sew and quilt. Please bring quilt tops or parts of the French braid pattern. Bring in everything you wish to donate. Plan to bring all your finished donations to February meeting.
Ryan’s Case for Smiles - 144 made at Once Upon a Quilt. Bring back the finished cases washed and pressed in Ziploc bags.
Aj and Allison discussed the BQE Call for Quilts for Sunday, January 27, 2019: Airing of the Quilts event at the historic Stranahan House Museum. Because you are a member of SFMQG you can submit 3 of your quilts for no fee. You are not required to live in Broward County. Read the description carefully for size requirements. Deadline for submissions is Nov 30th.
Cindi volunteered to organize the SFMQG Minis for the BQE Auction. Stay tuned for details about submitting a mini for this SFMQG fundraiser at BQE.
Several items were brought in for the SFMQG BQE fundraising table - thanks! Keep making fun things to sell for our fundraiser.
Holiday Handmade Gift Exchange
At December meeting - Bring One Take One. No holiday specific items and make something you would like to receive using modern fabrics (bright solids if you aren’t sure). Wrap it in modern fat quarter to add a special touch. Make a few and donate for the SFMQG BQE sale table.
We didn’t have enough time to pay Strip Poker so we’ll be doing that at the December meeting too.
BOM for December meeting detailed in this blog entry.
Member spotlight: Kerrilyn
First quilt @10 years ago in Colorado. Got it finished in time to take to Scotland where it was very much needed and loved. This presentation gave her the incentive to get many quilt tops completed. Click picture to enlarge.
Two Color Challenge Reveal
There were 23 entries for the Two Color Challenge and they were all amazing! Thanks everyone for your participation.
Hope you are considering entering you quilt in QuiltCon, BQE or Mancuso shows.
Maureen won the Viewer’s Choice award. Andrea and AJ won the raffle prizes. Thanks Aurifil for the thread donations for prizes!
