August 2018 Meeting Recap

At our August meeting, we welcomed Kelly Spell of the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild for a talk about her quilt design process and a trunk show of her fish-inspired quilts. But first, we covered a bit of business and had show and tell. Here's the news:

Instructions have been sent out for our next charity block collection for a Restoration House quilt. We're using the Modern Pine Trees pattern created by Faith Jones of Fresh Lemons Quilts for Bernina's We All Sew blog. Blocks should have a white background paired with two shades (light and dark) of a colored solid fabric.

Submissions for QuiltCon 2019 are open through November 30, and we'd love to see some KMQG member quilts hanging at the show! Go to for information.

Our next meeting is Saturday, September 15. We'll start the meeting at 10:30 (come at 10:15 to catch up during social time), and after business and show and tell, there will be a Tumbling Blocks Fabric Weaving workshop with Melissa Everett from 11-1. Use this form to sign up for the workshop through August 31.
