July Meeting 2016

The meeting this month was hosted by Roberta at Marco Polo Land, her campsite in Cavendish. 9 members and 2 guests were in attendance. One of the guests was Valerie from Burlington, Vermont and the other was Catherine, from Charlottetown. Catherine became our newest member before the  night was out. Welcome to the PEIMQG Katherine.
Kylie also joined, last week as our second Junior member.

Well we finally have our PEIMQG Logo and it turned out fantastic!! Can't wait to start using our brand wherever possible.

We started the meeting by collecting Roberta's Queen Bee blocks, what a beautiful assortment!

Helen is the Queen Bee for July and she brought in this amazing block.

Lucinda is Queen Bee for August and she will bring in her block kits to the August Sew-In (as we won't be having a meeting the month of August).

The Low Volume FQ swap was collected by the members present, and the remainder will be collected at the Sew-In where they will be divided up. Reminder to put your name on your bag of FQ's. The next FQ swap sign-up will be at the September meeting.

Also a reminder about the Frank Lloyd Wright challenge. The deadline for completion is the September meeting.

If anyone who contributed blocks to the Quilts for Pulse would like to sign the label block, they can do so at the Sew-In in August. I am currently working on quilting one of the completed tops. the other top will have to be put in the mail this week to meet the August 15th deadline. Thank you again to those who participated in this charity quilt project.

Upcoming events discussed include: The Kindred Spirits Quilt Show in October, a bus trip in May to a quilt show, an overnight retreat and workshop.  Lots to look forward to in the coming months.

When things started to get dark, the gang headed inside.
Here's some of Roberta's recent buys. Love the whimsical designs!

Gail also had a fun print to show us, whales with Santa hats. I love it!

The Dessert party was next up for discussion, with Dawn collecting items for the silent Auction. Here's some of the items Dianne brought:

To finish up the meeting we had Show and Share.

Here is Roberta's "Isabella" quilt. Stunning!

And our newest member Catherine had wonderful examples of some of her work:
