The meeting started with a finance report from Rosie Summers.

We then distributed our official MQG pins. If you did not receive yours — you will be able to pick one up next time.

We held our monthly raffle for free goodies!… Then went straight into show & tell..

Candy Minton explained our monthly friendship block. Each meeting please bring 2 blocks made from the pattern below. The fabrics are completely your choice with the exception of the “ribbon”. For the “ribbon” we will all be using a dark gray fabric. This fabric is Moda 9900 283. Here is a good resource for making half square triangles for those interested.

We ended the meeting with a demo by Gloria of Gloria Sews — she highlighted a scrappy ruler that makes putting together a scrappy quilt easy and interesting.
