July 2019 Eugene MQG Meeting


August meeting will be a potluck at Sladden Park in Eugene. Please bring food or drink to share, a plate and silverware, and a chair or blanket on which to sit.
There will be a swap for those who want to participate:  a project that is smaller than 12" on any side. This can be a mini quilt, small bag or whatever your heart desires, just remember Modern fabric/theme.  Make sure to place your swap item in a plain brown bag.

EMQG 2019 Retreat:  October 3-6, we have 20 members and one spouse attending.

2020 Charity Quilt blocks to be made by members. Nela handed out a small swatch of the three monochromatic colors that were chosen for our QuiltCon 2020 charity quilt, and instructions of what to create.  If you did not receive an instruction sheet and swatch sample, please contact Nela at the EMQG email address to request yours.

Tone on tone of the same color is fine, just check it to the samples provided.

We will be looking at nominating officers for next years guild, to be voted on in October.  Be thinking about which position you might be interested in serving our guild.
