November 19th meeting reminder

We’re looking forward to a great meeting on Monday! I’m reposting this meeting reminder so it’ll be on the front page of the website until our meeting on the 19th. Hope to see you there!

As always, our swaps and challenges are optional, but if you’re participating in all of them, this is what you’ll be finishing up this weekend:

1) Your Kona Modern Quilts Challenge project. This challenge uses fabric designed by Cynthia Frenette (plus optional additional Kona solids) to make any project you’d like! We can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with!

2) Your pincushion for the Modern Quilt Guild pincushion swap organized by the Kansas City MQG. Please attach two labels to your pincushion (as in the photo above). The large label should have your name, email, blog (if applicable), VMQG, filling type, and whether or not you’re going to QuiltCon. The small label should just have your name and guild and will be affixed to the pincushion that will be coming to you to keep everything organized.

3) Your bag of scraps for the holiday scrap challenge and swap! Bring in a sandwich-sized baggie full of scraps (approximately a fat quarter’s worth) and tuck your name inside the bag somewhere. We’ll swap bags at this meeting and bring the completed items to the December 17th meeting.

4) Completed items to sell at Got Craft? holiday edition. If you’ve volunteered to make merchandise for the VMQG’s booth at Got Craft?, this is your chance to bring in your finished items. You can see tutorials for mini bunting bannersneedlebooks, and hexie coasters at Amy’s blog. There will also be opportunities to hand in finished items in December.

Phew! You’re welcome to participate in all or none of the above. No matter what, if you’re coming to the meeting, you’ll need the basic event information, which follows.
