What:
+Announcements

+Show and Tell: Be sure to bring an item (finished or still in progress) to show the group!

+Charity Quilt: We will be working on this year's IMQG group charity quilt at this meeting. Our goal is to make the entire quilt top in one day! We will be working assembly line style with a a few stations for cutting, machines, ironing etc.

++If you would like to volunteer to bring materials (i.e. cutting mat, rotary cutter, rulers, sewing machine, iron, ironing board, etc.) please let us know either through email (indymodernquiltguild@gmail.com) or on the Facebook group event.

++Fabric: Meghan has generously donated enough scraps to make most of the top. However, you are always welcome to bring a few scraps as well. We are also looking for either white or light gray scraps for background fabric.

++We will have instructions on how to make the blocks ready at the meeting. If you would like to get a head start, cutting your scraps into rectangles of all sizes might be helpful.

Here is an inspiration picture for our quilt:

  1. Just found your blog, and I'm interested in learning how to quilt. Can anyone attend the meetings before becoming a member?
