Secretary – Heidi Aker
Events – Megan Ruth Stay
Treasurer – Maria Gambina-Hedrick

Swaps/Challenges – Caroline Rohrer
Education: Bobbie presented a fantastic tutorial on how to add a facing to your quilt, an option to use instead of binding for wall quilts, art quilts and projects where you don’t want binding to take away from the overall finished piece.  She shared a great resource for us to reference as we try this technique: bluemoonriver.com

Thank you to Teri and Cathy who finished up our QuiltCon Charity Quilt!  A HUGE thank you to Cindy for volunteering to quilt our QuiltCon Charity Quilt!

November Block Lottery Block: Modern Christmas Trees by Diary of a Quilter in blues, greens, metallics and low-volume prints.  The tutorial can be found here: https://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2015/12/modern-christmas-tree-quilt-block.html

Holiday Social Swap: At the Holiday Social we will have 2 fabric swaps.  Each swap requires two yards of fabric cut into 8 fat quarters.  Bring 8 low volume fat quarters and/or 8 solid pastel fat quarters.  We will swap the fat quarters and you will leave with a variety of low volume fabrics, pastels or both!

We look forward to seeing everyone and their amazing “Show and Tell” at our next meeting on November 28th at 6pm at The Christmas Goose!
