It was such a joy to see all the beautiful Kona Color of the Year modern mini quilts come through the door! We have 30 quilts ( and one marvelous new logo mini made by Donna L and Nancy G) to display at Kelly’s Bakery for the month of June. Well done BNMQG!

May 2018 Meeting Reminder

submitted by Kathy C., President

Hello Modern Quilters,

It’s time! Bring your Kona Tiger Lily mini quilt to the meeting in May. If you can’t be there please send it with a friend or make arrangements to turn it in before the meeting.  For your work to be hung in the exhibit it must be turned in by next Tuesday at the meeting.

We’ll be learning about printing on fabric using stamps, potatoes and all kinds of fun objects using several different mediums.  There will be paper to practice on and fabric for your final design.  Feel free to bring your own fabric too!

Registration for the July workshop with Lynn Carson Harris will begin this month.

Nancy Powell will be presenting the second set of directions for the BNMQG Mystery Quilt that she has designed.  There’s plenty of time to join in!

Tuesday, May 22

Meet us at Christ Lutheran Church, 311 N Hershey, Normal IL.

Social time starts at 5:30 and the meeting will begin at 6.

Can’t wait to see you!

Here’s what you need to bring!

submitted by Nancy P., Treasurer

How’s this for good timing… we can finish our mini quilts for BNMQG  and submit them for the #ModernMiniQuiltChallenge since they fit the criteria for it too.

Submit your entry by emailing a high-resolution image of your quilt to by 5 p.m. CST on Tuesday, May 22, 2018  – Full details available here:  Join the 2018 Quilt Expo Modern Mini Challenge

This is extra incentive to finish your quilt – their deadline is the same as ours – Tuesday, May 22nd (even though their stuff says Tuesday the 23rd – Tuesday is the  22nd).

It would be awesome to see some of our quilts there.   Hope we have lots of entries in both!

Just thinking!
