June General Meeting

We tried out a new location for June's meeting, and it worked out great! The room at the Weston Public Library was not only spacious, but it had a photography exhibit going on, which gave us inspiration for our next challenge! More on that later in the post.


This month we had a great turnout, many of the usual faces, as well as some new ones. We began with our challenge, which was a pincushion swap. Check out all of the interesting ones. We then assigned each a number, and everyone drew numbers.


We then decided that our next challenge will be to make a block inspired by this photograph that was hanging on the wall.

Please ignore the reflections!

We had some fantastic show and tell this month, which included some of the entries for the MQG Michael Miller challenge.

After the meeting we had a little field trip to Norwalk for lunch at Valencia Luncheria, and Christies Quilting Boutique. Yummy and Yummy!

Our next meeting will be at the Weston Public Library on July 12 at 10:00 am. You can find us on Facebook here.
