June was Charity Month

Congratulations on a massively successful Charity Month!

During the June meeting we collected over 200(!!!) blocks for charity quilts and collected over $300(!!!) from the Charity Table. The money will go towards buying anything we're missing to finish charity quilts this year.

At the sew day members quilted a donated top, pieced 4 more quilt tops and quilted 2 more of those! Great job everyone! Prizes for attending the sew days will be handed out at the next meeting, and we'll also be drawing for the Grand Prize at the meeting!

The QuiltCon Charity Quilt for 2018 is well underway. The theme is "Modern Traditionalism". The palette is a pretty mix of oranges, reds, and purples with a white and an off-white

The design committee met near the end of the month and take a look what's already come out of it! Here is a sneek peak from Jera's Instagram where she writes: Working on some exciting stuff here. This thing is massive at almost 36" in diameter. Hope all my Calgary Modern Quilt people like the start of this idea for our Quiltcon Charity challenge. #calgarymqg #calmqg #quiltcon2018 #quiltconcharitychallenge #quiltcon #improvdresdens

Jera and Diane will be talking more about the concept and design and getting feedback from members at the July meeting.
