Newsletter – October 2020

Hi Modern Quilters,
Welcome to FALL as it adds a brand new color palette to the world around us.  Do you have a favorite color palette?  A palette of color adds the WOW to a quilt.  It sets the mood and tone of your quilt.  This is even more exciting when choosing your own colors for your own quilt.  It’s especially fun when designing and creating a Temperature Quilt as you will find out this month with the presentation at our October meeting.  It’s going to be a HOT presentation even if it’s cold outside!

BNMQG October 2020

This month we welcome our own Kathy Cook who will explain Temperature Quilts!  Come and find out what that is, where to get information to make your own, and be inspired to be creative.  There will be a special exhibit of Temperature Quilts at QuiltCon 2022.  I know I’m looking forward to learning more about Kathy’s quilt and many other, very different Temperature Quilts.  It might even add a little science into the mix???  So be COOL, come to the Zoom meeting and invite a friend or two.  This event is FREE to BNMQG members.  Guests are welcome to join us for $5.50. Find guest tickets on our website – .

The travel isn’t long.  The weather isn’t a problem.  ZOOM is really easy (just ask anyone who has attended our meeting via zoom).  Lisa B. does an amazing job of running the behind-the-scenes stuff.   AND if you still haven’t joined us for a meeting via zoom and you’re still intimidated by the technology, email me.  We can have a private zoom (it probably would only take 10-15 minutes) in the days before the meeting so you can see how easy it is.  We want all of our members to be able to attend our meetings and it’s so much fun to see each other’s gorgeous faces.
