March 2022 Meeting Recap

Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild met in person again at the Westminster Presbyterian Church for the March 2022 meeting.

We were reminded again about some local quilt events coming up:

- A Mountain QuiltFest, June 6-9, in Pigeon Forge

- Smokey Mountain Quilters Quilt Show, August 5-6, Knoxville Expo Center

Sarah shared some of the results of our recent programming survey which will help us make sure that meetings include what members most want.  It was great to hear that Show & Tell is so popular - scroll down for pictures from this month's Show & Tell.

Remaining blocks were collected in for our first charity quilt of 2022 and a new block and color scheme were announced for quilt 2.

We found out the next block for the KMQG BOM QAL 2022 - check this post for details of the Chain Link block.  Details of all the blocks can be found on the BOMQAL2022 page - each block will be announced there as we go through the year.  Lots of members have already made a start on the QAL and we saw lots of examples of the first block - Graduated Geese.  It was interesting to see members' individual color choices and it's going to be great to see these blocks incorporated into quilts after we have discovered all 10 blocks.

Show & Tell

Here are pictures of some of the projects we saw at this month's Show & Tell.

We played a competitive game of Left-Right-Center - Jane was the lucky winner and went home with quite a stash of blender and solid fabrics.

Our next meeting is on April 23rd.  We expect to meet in person again at the Westminster Presbyterian Church.  Details on our Meetings and Events page.
