Since we have a lot going on at our November 19th guild meeting, I thought I’d write up a meeting reminder a little ahead of time. 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 week:
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 banners, needlebooks, and hexie coasters at Amy’s blog.
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.
