July Meeting in Weston

We had a cozy turnout at the Weston Library this month.Thanks Gail for recommending and booking  this spacious place.  It's a great venue to show off our quilty works.

   As usual, our members continue to sew up some creative fun.  Two challenges, and a block of the month make for very productive group members.  No idle hands in this bunch! We even knit during meetings.  

Welcoming Jessica!

First and foremost we welcomed Jessica to the SCMQG meeting!   She traveled 45 min. to join us and impressed us with her cheery quilt made of Kate Spain fabric. So happy you could make it!

We usually begin our meetings by displaying our monthly block challenge.  This month this photograph.... 

 inspired these modern blocks.  We can't wait to see what fabrics Jennifer,  the lucky winner, pairs with these.  

 What's a quilt meeting without a demo? Michele demonstrated a new tool for us called the Leaves Galore Ruler.  It creates leaves in a cinch.  It grabbed our attention with its fun and easy application.

 Michele is using it to create  blocks for the Hadley challenge

More sneak peeks of other works-in-progress for the Hadley Challenge  appear below. 

It amazes us how the same fabrics inspire such different compositions. Member spotlights in the weeks to come will "enlighten" us on our members' creative processes.  

The show and tell didn't end there. It  revealed two more Michael Miller Challenge quilts

 ...and the goodies from a swap in which Lisa participated.

All in all, a very  inspirational meeting that will have us coming back in September motivated and with  many pretty projects in tow.
