  •  Charity
    • QuiltCon:  Rossie has offered to chair the QuiltCon Charity committee.  She has posted on FB and sent an email asking members to vote for their favorite technique/design.
    • Guild blocks:  This last month was Boats Boats Boats.  We decided to continue this for next month to see if we can get enough for a twin size. See pattern on FB page or contact the board if you need the pattern.
    • Jackie MacG sent around some kits.  Also there were 3-4 twin and 2 baby quilts that needed quilting - several members volunteered.
  • MQG updates
    • Block study: ModSquared
    • Quilt of the Month: Fish in the Sea
    • Members are reminded that these are free resources that their membership pays for
  • Group Discussion (in lieu of skill share):  the group discussed ideas for putting text in quilts to prep all for the July Challenge; Brenda also posted some ideas on the FB page.
  • Swaps/Challenges:
    • Members showed off their mini's heading to CHI for the A2-Chicago swap.  We will receive our lovelies at the June meeting (can't wait!!!!).
    • June:  Pattern Swap (however many patterns you bring in, that is how many you can take home). A great way to recycle patterns for quilts you've already made and get new patterns or even to pass along something you know you will never make.
    • July: Challenge - anyone who finishes a quilt of any size that has letter(s)/word(s) using any technique other than it just being part of the fabric will be put in a drawing for a fabric bundle.
  • Other Guilds:  Amy S. shared that the GAAQC is hosting a class on Sunday, September 16 by Mickey Depre on Hexies and there are only a few sign-ups if members are interested.
