june meeting recap

Our end of the year meeting was a lot of fun, and a huge success! Not only did we share our scraps for our summer improv swap, but we raised $75 to dedicate toward great speakers and events for next year!

If you weren't able to attend, here's what you missed:

  • Everyone that attended the June meeting participated in a fun activity designing our own blocks using Generation Q Magazine's Block Builder. Below is the winning group's design, which we all are going to try to recreate over the summer! If you decide to participate, an unfinished block should measure 12.5", and can be made of whatever modern fabrics you choose. In September, hopefully we will have enough blocks for a large charity quilt, or a few smaller quilts.

  • There were some lovely show and shares:

  • And the winners of our raffle were Kim Soper and Carol Krottendorfer!
That's it for this year, but that doesn't mean we won't have things to share over the summer! Make sure to check back, as we plan to update the blog from time to time. Also, be sure to share what you are working on this summer by using the #LIMOD hashtag and tagging @limodqg on Instagram!

See you all in September! Have a safe and happy summer!

just a happy, scrappy reminder!

Hi Ladies,

Tuesday will be our last LIMOD meeting before the summer break! Before you trade in your rotary cutter for a bikini, we have a party to throw!
  • Please remember to bring a QUART-sized bag (the one you can bring in your carry-on luggage) filled with lots of scraps for our improv secret summer scrap swap. (try to say that 10 times fast!). Please put a piece of paper with your name on it INSIDE of the bag. Over the summer, we will be making something using the scraps provided in the bag and whatever other fabrics we choose. What you make is up to you, as long as you use the improv method. In September, you will exchange gifts with the person whose scraps you chose.
  • For some improv inspiration you can look here. And here. And here.
  • Please remember to bring a snack to share!
  • There will be games, raffles, prizes and more! 
Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday and celebrating a great year together!
