July Meeting Recap

We had a lovely picnic in the park and while there was threat of rain at the end of the evening we made it out unscathed. 

This is an early shot of the group and our area filled up pretty quickly by the end of the day.
The meeting started with a lovely thank you from Grayson Dempsy who is associated with Bradley-Angle House our January Charity focus and presented her with a group of quilts. If you haven't read about them check out their website.

Next we enjoyed a presentation from member Monica Solorio-Snow of her new fabric line Winterkist! 
This quilt was shown at Sisters and was at Quilt Market. 

You can see on the backing that Monica designed this for fussy cutting so there is a lot of space around all of the gnomes. She also shared some cute bags but I am sorry the pictures didn't turn out. You can find more of her fun creations on her blog!
