President Evie called the meeting to order.
Old Business was "Come to the Fair" which will be the theme for our July meeting and fund raiser. Bring a guest, watch demos of different techniques used for quilting. Buy baked goods, enjoy Sew and Share.

New Business was "QUILTS FOR JOPLIN and BAMA BOUND QUILTS for kids.
Links can be found here for both websites.

Block of the month demo for July is red/white/blue. If you didn't get the pattern it is on the Shutterfly website. Use link at side of page to get there.

Many colorful turquoise and blue star blocks were brought for one lucky winner!

Some members make an extra BOM in red/white/blue for the Wounded Warrior Quilts that the Tuesday night group makes. 

Sew and Share is always the highlight of the most meetings!!! We love seeing how productive/creative/ our members can be!!

Cyndi McChesney was our guest speaker. Her lecture was titled "Reheated Leftovers".  She gave may good suggestions how to cut left over fabrics into strips for future use in quilts.

One of many quilts Cyndi made used leftovers from other quilts.
