July Meeting Recap

We met at the Haverhill Library on Saturday to work on both the QuiltCon Charity quilt that will travel to Savannah in February, and some of the quilts for Orlando.

We started with a very short business meeting. 
This Friday, July 15, at 8am the PayPal button will be posted on the blog for the Christa Watson class that we are hosting on October 8th from 10-5pm. The class will be on free motion quilting using your domestic machine. The class will cost $100. Starting July 15 the class registration will be open to only SMQG members and seats will be filled on a first come first serve basis. On August 15 any remaining spots will be open to the public.
We will have an optional sew in on Friday July 22 at the Stratham Library from 2-8. If you would like to come bring something to work on and any accessories you need for sewing! 

We had a brief show and tell before we got down to sewing! 
Diane shared this quilt she made, with matching pillowcases! Carrie did the quilting on this quilt using her long arm.

Nancy showed off her finished quilt top from Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage pattern.

Alison secretly shared some blocks that she has been pattern testing for Tartan Kiwi, and also showed off this charity quilt that she whipped up and quilted on a long arm using rented long arm time. 

Our sew in was very productive, we made good progress on the QuiltCon Charity quilt, and also got a quilt top made from the Orlando heart blocks that we had all made at home. There was also some progress on assembling the quilt blocks that were signed at the Portsmouth Pride Parade. 

Our next meeting will be on Saturday, August 6th at 10am, at the Lane Memorial Library in Hampton. Bea will be teaching applique methods. A supply list will be posted in the meeting reminder.
