October 2016 meeting minutes

In attendance: Connie, Whitner, Sandy, Cheryl, Elaine, Carol, Karen, Kathy, Delyne, Alice, Tami, Kim, Amy, Phoebe
Phoebe welcomed the group.
Phoebe told the group about the charity quilt for Quiltcon 2017.  The group worked on an improv log cabin at 5/8th seams for the Quiltcon Challenge play on scale.  The quilt top was completed at that sew day. 

Scraps from the Pulse quilt were brought in and everyone was asked to use them for log cabin blocks that will go into charity quilts for Magdalene House. 
Next meeting is Wednesday November 16th, same place and same time, but the date was changed due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
Elections will take place at the January meeting, so please think about if you want to be on the board or not.
The next Sew Day will be November 12th and is an Open Sew Day.
The Cobblestone Guild invited us to do a presentation on modern quilts for their guild which will include a trunk show on January 12th. 
Our Holiday Party will be Sunday December 11th from 2pm-4pm at Jennifer Lake’s house.  There will be a signup sheet for food soon.
Show and Tell
Phoebe wore a new handmade wardrobe piece, the Sailor Top.  She highly recommends that you take the Creativebug class for this top.  She said it was a great video and was very helpful.  She mentioned that it is only $5 a month to use Creativebug and that there are many great classes.  Phoebe also shared a nine patch quilt she made with feed sacks that she quilted using Jen Kingwell’s “x” quilting technique.  She found her feed sacks from Darlene Zimmerman (

Connie shared a stunning rainbow strip quilt she made as well as a pinwheel quilt.

Whitner showed half of a star quilt top that she is working on.

Sandy made a beachy turning twenty quilt for a friend.

Cathy shared a Sugar Block Club block she finished.

Alice made a Carolina Baby Quilt using small bricks and two baby quilts using strips.   She also showed her hand pieced hexie quilt which was hand quilted.  The binding was done with hexies that were whipstitched together.
