It's All About Mary!

Meeting Date: June 8th, 2013
Members in Attendance: 7 (8, if you count Zuri)

OK, not really. But, Mary did seem to be the star of Saturday night's meeting. She volunteered to give us a demo on wonky kiss blocks.


If you missed it, there's a similar tutorial here, just make the inset strips more diagonal rather than side to side. I might give it a try today!

Mary also rocked the show and tell, bringing her almost finished scrappy trip quilt and three quilt tops she's finished this month. Three!


(Zuri seems to like it.)




Aren't they all just amazing?

We did discuss a few things other than Mary and her awesomeness.

1. Flyer report. I haven't seen any around town, yet. If you have some, please hang them up somewhere! Let's spread the word.

2.The Boise Basin Quilters Quilt Show is September 28th and 29th. We discussed the possibility of putting together some carpools and heading up together. There was some definite interest.

3. We're going to have a picnic! We settled on Saturday, July 13th. That's the first weekend that worked for all of us at the meeting. It also happens to be our regular meeting night. Instead of the meeting we'll head to an as yet undecided park (any recommendations?) with our families and have a potluck picnic. The guild will provide paper products and a main course. It's up to everyone else to bring the rest. There will be more details as the time gets closer. I'm also going to try and still sneak in a late night sew in July. There's no way I can go a month without it!

So, that's it. See you all next month!
