Speaking of our charity quilt projects, we have a new one! We've chosen the Ribbon Star block from Fresh Lemons Quilts, and we're asking for a colorful palette of solids with white. Blocks are due at the August meeting.
Here's the link to the tutorial: http://www.freshlemonsquilts.com/solstice-stars-series-ribbon-star/
And here's the solids palette we would like everyone to use, paired with white. We'd like to see 4 colors per block, but if you can't manage that with your stash, a minimum 2 colors works as long as you position them at opposite corners.
Some miscellaneous business --
- Our mini quilt show on June 1 was a success! Thanks to everyone who contributed quilts, time, and more. Our next, larger show will be in April 2019, so start brainstorming!
- Member registration for QuiltCon 2019 in Nashville (Feb 21-24) opens this Tuesday! Members should have received emails from the MQG with links to the workshop catalog and registration. You can also find all the info at www.quiltcon.com.
