July 2020 Meeting Recap

The July meeting of the Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild was held via Zoom July 18th, 2020. We had 14 members attend.

Our latest charity quilt project for The Restoration House of East Tennessee was discussed. Pat Pike volunteered to assemble the quilt. Blocks need to be sent to Pat by August 1st. We used the Quarter Log Cabin block (tutorial by Elizabeth Rea here). The color palette was solid colors pulled from the print fabric on the right.

We also discussed the QuiltCon Community Outreach challenge. A coloring page of the proposed quilt design was sent to the membership via email. We're asking our members to use the color palette provided to color it and make any suggestions concerning construction on the page. Snap a picture of the coloring page and email it to modknoxville@gmail.com by Saturday, August 8. 

QuiltCon registration opened earlier this month and we had a lively discussion about classes and lectures. Registration for QuiltCon Together seems to be going smoothly.

Show and Tell was fascinating as always. It's so much fun to see our members' projects.

Our next meeting is Saturday, August 15th.
