The Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild met on December 10 for our December meeting and Holiday Party. A great spread of food, and a lovely selection of mug rugs in the mug rug swap.
2022 Block of the Month Quilt Along
No block of the month announced this month - all 10 blocks have been announced now and we are looking forward to seeing the completed quilts. We saw our first two examples:
KMQG Show 2023
We are now accepting applications for members' quilts to be included in the show which will run at the The Arts and Culture Alliance's Emporium Center on Gay St. in Knoxville throughout March 2023. Details of how to apply have been emailed out to members. We look forward to showing a selection of modern quilts. We will also be showing Mystery Purple Mini Quilt Challenge quilts to see how members use the solid purple fabric provided and incorporate it into a 20 x 20 inch mini quilt.
Sewing Resolutions 2022
We did an end of year recap on how many resolutions had been achieved. Sherry earned a prize for having completed the most with 4 1/2 out of her 5 resolutions done. Everyone is encouraged to come up with some new resolutions for 2023 (or maybe roll over some from this year)!
Elections were held for the board officers for 2023.
Show & Tell
A number of inspiring finished and in progress projects were shown.
Wishing everyone a happy and peaceful festive season.
We look forward to seeing you next year at our first meeting of 2023 on January 21 at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 10:30am.
