July/August 2021 Meeting Recap


Our July and August meetings were both in-person meetings held at the Westminster Presbyterian Church. It still seems like a bit of a novelty to see our members in person. 

Our member spotlights were Liz Upchurch in July and Heather Wilson in August. We appreciate Liz and Heather taking the time to answer questions and participate in this program. The member spotlight is a great way for us to get to know our fellow KMQG members better. 


The Smoky Mountain Quilters 40th Anniversary Ruby Jubilee Quilt Show was held July 30th and 31st. The KMQG sponsored the Modern Quilt category. Several of our members entered quilts in the show. It's always exciting to see friends' quilts in the wild!

The 2021 Modern Mini Quilt Challenge has been introduced! Architecture themed quilts (based on a photograph) are due at our October meeting.

The theme for the Community Outreach Quilt Challenge for QuiltCon 2022 is Angles. A committee has been working on a design and we will be having a sew day in September to assemble the quilt top. 

At our August meeting, Elizabeth Rea presented the next in our Elements of Modern Quilting Series, Use of Negative Space. Our next presentation in the series will be in October.
