September Meeting Update

We had a number of new faces at our September meeting which was really nice! Andrea Harris of Urban Quiltworks gave a really wonderful presentation on preparing your quilts for a longarm quilting service.

After the presentation was over, we shared our projects with each other. You can see we have so much talent within our group!

Our October challenge was announced and we will be creating a Halloween table runner using p.s. i quilt's tutorial. Please find free-motion quilting inspiration from Andrea on our Facebook page! We are looking forward to seeing everyone's finished table runner.

And an update to our Guild Block Challenge. We have all been straining to complete the Modern Monday's 42 blocks and have decided to change this challenge to include blocks from Tula Pink's Tula 100 book. Bernadette from Traditional Pastimes has reordered the book and it should be in shortly. They are the exact same size as the first challenge blocks so it shouldn't be too hard to switch over if you choose. A lot of members just found the blocks to be more wonky and awkward than expected.

Please check out instagram here for inspiration on these blocks! If you're on flickr or instagram please remember to tag #tula100 and #calmqg to play along!
