October Meeting Recap

As we prepare to join the Modern Quilt Guild "mothership" (thanks CA!) we announced that we will be covering a few crucial bases at our November meeting:

1) conducting elections for our Board of Directors 
2) presenting our guild's bylaws
3) introducing RIMQG membership forms 
4) announce what our annual membership dues will be and how they will be collected

Stay tuned for more details! We are all very excited!

Next Challenge
Due at our November meeting are the projects for the "Design Your Own Quilt" challenge.

Look for another blog post with the details from our 3x3 speakers on their process for designing quilts:
1) use Excel to design quilts and calculate yardage
2) use graph paper to sketch quilts, and carry a notebook to jot down quick ideas and inspirations
3) how to brainstorm ideas, answering the question "where do I start?"

Show & Tell
This month we saw some impressive quilts from our members, in addition to some great pieces from a few new faces!

Events & Field Trips

The New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA will feature a talk by Denyse Schmidt on Friday, November 15 at 7pm. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased on their website. If you're interested in going, send an email to Becky so we can coordinate our first guild field trip!

On view at the Museum will also be an exhibit called Roots of Modern Quilting: Fresh Eyes on Old Quilts, which is open from October 10 -December 28.

We also received an invitation from the Boston Modern Quilt Guild and Seacoast Modern Quilt Guilds to join them for a talk by Lizzie House on Saturday, November 23 from 10am-12pm. This would be a great opportunity to connect with other local chapters of the Modern Quilt Guild!

Thanks again to everyone who came out to the meeting this month. Happy quilting and see you soon!
