Meeting Minutes, March 2019

Classes

  • Giucy Giuce will be teaching a class at on Saturday, April 13th. There are seven spaces left!
  • Erin Harris will be teaching Make Your Own Medallion in September.  
  • Our own Rossie Hutchinson will teach in April 2020.

Retreats & Sew-ins
  • Our Spring retreat will be May 3-5.  It is currently full with one person on the waiting list.
  • Next retreat will be in January 2020 at Creative Passions.
  • There will be no April sew-in.  The next sew-in is May 19th.
  • We again discussed the possibility of bag-making.  The next step will be a survey from Guild leadership. Sheryl shared some upholstery fabric, and she has more to share if people are interested.
  • Tentatively, we think the August sew-in will be a good time to work together on the charity quilt for Quiltcon. (The theme and colors have not yet been announced.)
Community
  • Our quilts came back from the Ford Museum.  Tara distributed them and we all shared them, because why not? We love seeing quilts.
  • We had 40 2x4 blocks for 2 charity quilts for Mott! 
  • For the April meeting, we're doing 2x4 blocks again, this time in blues and greens for the VA.  See Film in the Fridge's instructions here: http://filminthefridge.com/2016/04/07/two-by-four-a-quilt-block-tutorial
  • The 2019 MQG Riley Blake Challenge is on. If you request fabric from MQG and it was sent to guild, please contact Jackie Mills, she has it.
  • Want a book from the library? Let Kim Ulrich know via Facebook. (Just post in the Ann Arbor MQG group if you're not friends.)
Sharing
  • Rossie was the featured quilter and she showed off many beautiful tops, including her second quilt ever.
  • Round Robin swapped - there are now 10 people participating.
  • Brenda has shared the challenge and swaps schedule for the year.
  • The April challenge is Art Spark.  Create a quilt (any size) based on or inspired by a work of art.  This is not a swap - just bring it in to share.  There will be a raffle with a prize.
