We know some of you were off at QuiltCon last weekend, but those of us who stayed home got our quilting fix at our fabulous February meeting.
We had a fantastic presentation from Tania Denyer of Ginger Quilts. She talked about the intersection of art and craft, shared her philosophy on creativity, and left us all asking "What would that look like in fabric?" Plus, we got to see her gorgeous and mouth-watering quilts up close. Inspirational!
Our Vice President Xandra launched our very first block lotto of 2020! It features "Enchanted" the Kona Colour of the Year, and a block pattern from the Modern Quilt Guild. Block lotto instructions can be found here.
