Hello Modern Quilters,
Lots of quilts to share this month!
Program Connie B led a discussion about the best places to buy fabric online.
We also discussed how important it is to support our local quilt shops. We are so lucky to have 4 in Bloomington/Normal! Check before you buy online–they have an incredible variety of modern fabric. Buy local!
The next QuiltCon Charity Challenge sew day is Thursday, August 4 from 9 to 3 at Boline’s. Thanks Becky!
Thank you members for your generous donation of your time and talents! We have three teams working on the Orlando quilts. Hopefully they will all be completed by our August meeting. All extra blocks will be mailed to the Orlando MQG as well.
We are gearing up to get back to work on our baby quilt program which Betty W has cleverly named “HeartBeat”. More material has been ordered, but meanwhile feel free to make wedge blocks! I’ll let you know when the next sew in is scheduled.
Mystery Quilt Reveal! Many thanks to Ann G who designed this year’s Mystery Quilt! Here are those that have been completed so far.
Block Lotto Sue K and Leanne F won the beautiful Floating Rail Fence blocks. Check out next month’s block here.
Show and Tell
Yay modern quilters!
