Quilt Presentation

On Tuesday, January 6, seven quilters representing the Central Florida Modern Quilt Guild, met at North Lake Presbyterian Church to present our group quilt to Kay Kennedy, leader of North Lake's women's group. 
From L-R: President Karen; CFMQG liaison with North Lake, Brenda; Vice President Debbie; Treasurer Carla; Membership Co-Chair Frances; Vice President Beth; and Media Coordinator Linda H.
Karen explained to the women's group about our project - blocks made by about 20 quilters, and longarm quilted by Debbie - and that CFMQG appreciates using a church room for our monthly meetings. She then pulled the quilt from a gift bag... show to everyone.

And, the 87" X 97" quilt from the back.

Emotions ran high as CFMQGers learned about the womens group's first upcoming Art Festival, and how this quilt will be raffled to raise funds to support North Lake's charitable giving.

Monday, January 12 begins an exciting new year for the Central Florida MQG! We have an entire complement of board members and committee chairs, and by the end of January or early February we'll officially be part of the national MQG.

On the agenda for Monday evening, beginning at 6:30 p.m:
  • Accept final members and membership dues ($40 - cash only!) for 2015. Beginning in February, non-members will be allowed to attend one meeting at no charge. Two meetings may be attended at a cost of $2 each. Then the individual will be required to join.  
  • Program: Vice President Debbie will talk about "The Continuum" based on a Modern Quilt Guild webinar presented in September, 2014, by Jacquie Gehring. Vice President Beth will talk about "How to Make a Churn Dash Modern." 
  • Members are invited to bring two quilts to the meeting: 1) a quilt made early in your quiltmaking experience, and 2) a quilt made recently.
Don't forget to wear your homemade name tag!

Mark your calendars for 2015 meetings, all of which are on the second Monday of each month. Next meeting: Monday, February 9, 6:30 p.m. at North Lake Presbyterian Church. 

Mark your calendars for 2015 Sew-Ins too, (see dates on right menu bar) all of which are at the Belleview Public Library and free to members. The next Sew-In is Saturday, February 28 from 10 am to 4 pm.
