May Meeting Highlights

From the May 30th Meeting: Curves Ahead Challenge Reveal 

The criteria for the curve challenge was to create a finished quilt using curves, any method. We had eighteen members participate in the challenge. Here are the results!

L-R: Peg Pennell, Liz Thanel, Sara McCracken, Linda Gale

L-R: Rhonda Eddy, Deanna Larson, Sheree Brown, Brooke James

L-R: Julie Karjala, Nancy Goff, Sheila Green, Vicky Bedell, Pat Kant 

L-R: Tom Meyer, Judy Crockett, Chris Taylor, Cynthia Levis

Everyone in attendance voted for their favorite quilt based on best use of curve technique, modern aesthetic and overall appeal. Here are the winners! 1st place: Nancy Goff,  2nd place: Liz Thanel, and a three way tie for third place: Peg Pennel, Vicky Bedell, and Chris Taylor. 

A big thank you to Kristie Jarchow for making the prize bags using our logo fabric!

After the challenge reveal, we moved upstairs to see our Modern Quilts display in the Beavers Terrace Gallery. Our quilts will be on display at the IQSCM until June 18th, 2017. Check out our Facebook page for more photos, button in the sidebar!
