May Meeting ReCap

The second meeting of the South Jersey MQG was on May 22nd.  We went through some general guild business & announcements and then dove into our book discussion.  Members brought their favorite quilting books to share with the group.  Cut the Scraps, Simple Shapes Spectacular Quilts and Quilt Romance by Kaffe Fasset, Quilting for Show, Quilts Made Modern, City Quilts, and Material Obsession were among the books shared.

After the book discussion we had a fat quarter swap - a blind swap for 4 fat quarters...hopefully next time someone remembers to take some photos :)

The next SJMQG meeting is Wednesday June 27th at 7pm.  NOTE: This is not our normal meeting night due to scheduling conflicts with the library.  RSVP via the Big Tent site or email!!  For the June meeting, we'll discuss making quilts for Project Linus & any other charity work (so bring ideas!!), having a pincushion swap, and discussing plans for the rest of the summer.  Can't wait to see everyone's fabulous pincushions!

If you're a member of the SJMQG, make sure you check out the Big Tent site for the full meeting minutes and other announcements or for more information contact us at southjerseymqg@gmail.com.
