June meeting



                                         This month we worked on quilts for kids.  While the instructions were being                         given we were relaxing and getting ready to start working on the projects.







This is a quilt I made and it is the same kit pattern we were given to work on. Several of us brought our machines and we ended up finishing 8 quilt tops and several were taken home to work on....


Now for some show and tell from our members.

Look at this cute fox quilt.

This is a row by row quilt several of us are participating in a swap for this one.  It has two or three more rows to be added.  So cute.



Look at this big beautiful quilt of Glenda's.  



Cathy worked on this lovely little butterfly quilt.
   



Linda B. made this beauty.


Ruth is hiding behind this cute quilt.




Hmmm, I think this was Karen's quilt but I'm not sure.  She's hiding so much I can't tell and don't remember!


Martha showed this one. This is a quilt top that the modern quilt guild have asked people to make to donate to the families and first responders of the Florida people that were killed.  


Here's the information for the pattern.
Information about the project:

The following is from the email from the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild:

#Quiltsforpulse

DMQG is participating in the Orlando MQG’s Charity quilt drive to help the victims and families of the Orlando nightclub shootings. We are asking all members that want to participate to make the 10 1/2 inch Rainbow blocks with low volume background colors.

You can read about the block at Cluck Cluck Sew. Learn more about the complete project at the Orlando MQG website or the MQG Blog.

Urban Spools has offered to be our official block drop off location (also drop off at guild meeting). For every 3 or more heart blocks dropped off you will receive one FQ. Also, they have agreed to quilt the quilt tops we complete (OMG! So generous!) for no charge. We will just need to supply backing and batting for them.

The following is Cluck, Cluck Sew where the heart quilt pattern is located:

I hope you all have a chance to make a couple of blocks or a whole quilt.  You know someone will love it.  Thanks for caring.
