June 2018 Meeting Reminder

Submitted by Kathy C., President

Hello Modern Quilters!

I’ve been waiting all year for this month’s meeting!  Come to Kelly’s Bakery at 6pm on Tuesday June 26 for a celebration of our first exhibit! We’ll view our beautiful minis and FabricRaffle6-18have treats from Kelly’s. There will be a short meeting but no program.

Everyone who has a quilt hanging will be entered into the drawing for the Culcita Box which has 12 Tula Pink fat quarters!

We’ll have a special fabric raffle with 6 half yards of Cotton and Steel and solid fabric! That’s 3 yards of fabric, quilters!

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

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

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 qechallenge@gmail.com 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!
