Februrary Meeting Highlights

From the February 27th Meeting 
February Program: "Curves Ahead"

This month, we focused on curves in a group design activity. The exercise involved taking the traditional Drunkards Path block and making it modern! 

Special thanks to Jean Larson and the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild for sharing your educational exercise with us.

HERE is the link to the design exercise if you would like to print out your own copy.  

Curves Ahead Challenge

The challenge begins February 28th and is due at the May 30th meeting. It must be a quilt with three layers, using curved piecing or applique or both! Viewers choice will be awarded at the May meeting.

QuiltCon/Habitat for Humanity Quilt Raffle
