Activity CommitteeNew Challenge is introduced for RIMQG:
The new challenge was presented and it will involve using Black and White fabric with the addition of ONE other color. Several members had the savvy suggestion that variations of those three colors may be used. For example, if you choose Pink as your one color, it was range from Blush to Magenta. That is extent of rules. Any size, Any shape! It will be due for the November Meeting.
September's monthly topic will be a 3x3 applique demo. Let's learn or brush up on three ways to use this skill in our modern quilting.
Good Luck to our Lucky members attending the Quilt Retreat in August!!
