Here are the things we talked about at our June Guild Meeting:
-All guild members were sent an email with a link to our official financial report
-If you have any questions or concerns about it, contact Marion
Tips and Tricks
-Sharon showed us how she writes numbers on her pins with a sharpie and then uses them to keep track of rows, stacks, etc.
-This month we finished two quilts, with lots of quilts only needing binding
-We are making an effort to donate our quilts to more charities that are local to us, including Utah Valley and Mountain View Hospitals, and the Women's Shelter in Provo
-Our guild would like to donate a quilt to the victims of the recent shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. For more info, look a few blog posts back. :)
Challenge: Words of Art
-Create letters or words with fabric
-Turn it into a FINISHED project
-Due at September guild meeting
-Sonia did an amazing job showing us techniques for making improv letters. Most of her ideas and techniques came from the book Word Play Quilts by Tonya Ricucci.
-These are the four techniques she covered: 1. Add on, 2. Cut and insert, 3. Add corner triangles, 4. Duplicate an angle
