August 17th meeting reminder

Our next meeting is 7:00pm, Monday, August 17th

Meeting Notes

We’re excited to have a Modern Mini Showcase at the upcoming Vancouver Quilters’ Guild show and we hope you’ve started thinking about what you might make for the show! At our August meeting, Amy Dame will walk us through blocking a quilt, a process that squares everything up and gets your quilt looking great for a show. Share your progress pics using the hashtag #VMQGmodernminishowcase.
