You’ll have to excuse the photos in this post. I had some major camera issues right before the meeting and had to resort to my iPhone for official picture taking. As a result some of the pictures are not very good and some are missing completely.
This was our first meeting in Periwinkle’s new location on Broadway avenue and we had a full house! It was so nice to see many familiar faces and a few new ones as well. The new space at Periwinkle is much larger and we are just so happy we get to use it. We even went on a little store tour after the meeting to check out the new space.
After a little business the wonderful Lisa lead us on a binding lesson. She made some great samples and I think everyone took something away from her talk. She also provided us with a list of resources which I have added to our resource page. Be sure to check it out.
We also gathered up our pouches which are en route to the East Midlands MQG as part of a swap we are doing with that guild.
We also showed off the results of our scrap challenge, in January we challenged members to swap a plastic bag full of scraps with another member and see what they could make. Some of the pouches above were part of the challenge as well. There were a few other pieces as well and unfortunately I don’t have pictures of them all. Everyone did a great job!
At the end of the meeting we also did some regular show and tell. We love to see what you are working on.
Thanks again for a great meeting everyone! Hope to see you next month.
P.S. Here is a sneak peek of our banner. It’s coming along nicely. Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to the effort.
These are such good ideas for swaps – the pouches, and the bag of scraps. And your banner is beautiful, so far. Did you have the chapter name screen-printed or something? The block colors are gorgeous. This is going to be wonderful!
Greetings from the East Midlands Quilt Guild. A huge thank you to you all for our swap pouches. Unfortunately not all of you put your names in them and I would like to thank the person who made the one that I was given (front right in photo). Di x
The blue and grey one? That’s from me! Hope you like it. – Jaclyn.
