February Meeting Recap

Hello Modern Quilters!

Forty modern quilters were at our February meeting!

Kris Z won the fabric raffle and is our Member Spotlight for February!

Betty W did a great job of taking us through the MQG’s website and giving us the lowdown on hotels for Quilt Con East in Savannah. Start saving those nickels and dimes.  And dollars!!

Vickie A came to the meeting with a box filled with all the goodies she received from the MQG. She generously donated fabric bundles for our fabric raffle. And then she let each member choose a fat quarter to take home! Thank you Vickie!


Block Lotto winners were Ann U and Carrie O–twice! Yep, Carrie went home with 24 blocks.  She says she is going to make something BIG!

  1. I love your recap! I’m from the Orange County MQG in southern CA and I’m gearing up for our monthly meeting today. How did you navigate through the MQG website with your members – on a tablet or projected on screen from a computer?


  2. Great post! Did you get a pic of pat messiness t shirt quilt? Was barb Stevens the other loot block winner with marge? I love her mod idea!
