QuiltCon Block Swap: Lesley Allan shared Wildflower Quilt Co. is hosting a “Block Swap” during QuiltCon. Lesley will send out directions and information to our members. This activity involves creating one (or more) Postcards and mailing them, along with return envelope & postage. The postcards will be delivered to QuiltCon and traded with other submitted postcards and the new postcard(s) will be returned to you. This is a voluntary activity.

UFO: Terry Murphy suggested members of the group have an “Accountability Partner” regarding unfinished projects. No action taken.

Improv Activity: Thea Gyde suggested members watch a video “Modern Quilt Traditional” which can be found on the Modern Quilt Guild website and plan an activity. Ideas include a timed activity during a sew-in, etc. The Guild agreed that this would make a great program for one of the 2024 monthly meetings.

Labeling Quilts: Jill Therriault suggested a future program topic be “Creative Labeling” of our quilts. Our quilts may last for generations and documenting the meaning behind each quilt is worth noting.

Asian Fabric Challenge: Participating Guild members shared their projects using the quarter yard of Asian Fabric Aleesha Kobernik generously donated to Guild members at our Fall Retreat.

Show & Tell: Participating Guild members shared their projects
