May Meeting Recap

We broke our own attendance records at the May Meeting! 50 people attended! Woo hoo! And we’re up to a total of 70 members – yay us!

The backdrop for the meeting was our wonderful hexie challenge blocks. Don’t they look marvelous?


Three lucky members got to split the 102 blocks – Felicity (using up her ‘real’ lottery luck again), Jo Ann and Niki.

There was a wonderful round up of the To Boston With Love flags and Berene was there in person to pick them up before her flight to Boston the next day.



We announced some exciting workshop news: we’ve partnered with the Fraser Valley MQG to bring Cheryl Arkison to BC for Workshops and a trunk show in July (18th trunk show in Vancouver, 19th and 20th workshops in Abbotsford – more details to come in their own blog post).

And we saw some beautiful quilts. More in the Flickr group, as usual.

Be on the lookout for a call for quilts to be entered in the VMQG showcase at the Northwest Quilting Expo in Portland, OR in September. Members, you are encouraged to enter a modern quilt you’re most proud of to be featured in the show. Our quilts will be in a separate exhibit and don’t need to be juried in.

Thanks for coming out to the meeting, and see you in June!
