March Meeting Recap

We met on Saturday March 18th.  We welcomed several new members this month.

KMQG Quilt Show - this opened on March 3 and looks great!  It runs to March 31 so there is still time to check it out at The Emporium, 100 S Gay St., Knoxville

Some other upcoming local quilting events:

We checked out pictures of some of the quilts that caught the eyes of members who attended QuiltCon in Atlanta last month.  

We agreed that last year's QuiltCon Community Outreach 'Skittering' quilt would be donated to The Appalachian Mountain Bike Club for inclusion in their silent auction.

The first batch of polka dot star blocks were collected for this year's first charity quilt, the remaining blocks for this one are due at the April meeting.

As well as the fabric requirements, the cutting instructions have been shared for this year's Quilt-along.

Based on responses from members to the programming survey, our events coordinator, Betsy, has organized a series of 'Sew-ins' to be held directly after some of our regular meetings.  Members can bring any project they want to work on, bring a sewing machine or bring some hand sewing.  These sew-ins will be after the meetings on:

  • June 17th
  • August 19th
  • October 21st

Here are the projects that were presented at our Show & Tell
