A2MQG Meeting Minutes February 2024

Everyone ­čĺľ's February!

The meeting was held at Maker Works with 19 members in person, and 1 member via Zoom.

Round Robin: participants shared their progress.

Ann Arbor Fiber Arts Expo (AAFAX):  Carol shared with us what it was like to participate in the Ann Arbor Fiber Arts Expo! It was a fun day with lots of participation. We liked it enough that we plan to return next year with even more activities and enthusiasm! 

Swaps/Challenges:  This month's challenge was to design a quilt (or even just a block) by taking an aesthetic from a traditional design concept and combine with a modern aesthetic as shown in the Holly Clarke video. We had some really cool ideas come out of it! Check our Instagram to see some! 


- Our MQG Community Challenge Quilt was spotted at Quilt Con! It looks so good!!

- We had some great charity finishes this month! Continue to get those charity quilts to Carol and peruse our collection of kits to take home and put together, or make your own!


  • We will have a sew-in on 3/30 at Maker Works from 12pm-4pm! This sew-in will focus on charity quilts. 
  • April 6th will be our Voltron Quilt Zoom class with Irene Roderick! The class is currently full but you can get on the waitlist in case some folks drop out.
Demonstration/Skill Share:  Brenda showed us how to do twining, turning scraps into twine! Thanks Brenda!

Show and Share:  The Board would like to ask members to limit (if possible) the number of show and shares to no more than 2 quilts. We want to see your work! Don't forget to bring those finishes (and WIPs!) to show off to your quilty pals!

Next meeting: Wednesday, March 27th at Maker Works! See you there!

Next month's challenge: Quilted Name Tag! We would love for members to wear name tags, and what's more fun than a quilted name tag? Deb showed us a technique of using letters from fabric/selvage to create cute tags! Here's a reel on Instagram from halfsquarehannah that shows a fun selvage method:
