October 2020 BMQG meeting
Thank you all for attending virtually. This month we are updating the bylaws. Please check your email for the proposed changes as members will vote in the November meeting. The two major changes include clarification for the communications directors and addition of a guild administrator.
The guild's nominating committee is still looking to fill the position of Vice President, Treasurer, and co-chair of Communications. None of the positions are scary and that being on the board is a lot of fun. Please let Jenn Paulson or Elizabeth Berger know if you are interested in filling one of the vacant positions. You can email the general guild email at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
Sylvia Schaefer presented her lecture "Quilts from Science". She presented several of her science themed quilts, including quilts inspired by Marine Science, Biology, and Astronomy. Sylvia shared her quilts, explained the science behind the inspiration, and described how she incorporated the science into the design, the fabric, and the quilting. Not only were we treated to a beautiful quilt show, we learned a lot in the process. Never has science class been so fun or inspiring.
Show and share followed Sylvia's presentation. Susan B. said we have half the blocks needed to create a quilt meeting the size requirements for the QuiltCon Community Outreach Charity Quilt Challenge. She requested that members let her know if they are still interested in making blocks so we can reach the required size. Laura Baltatzis is still accepting blocks for the Ribbon Rock and is looking for a volunteer to quilt the finished quilt. Please contact her or Sarah K. if you are willing to do the quilting.
Here are our beautiful show and share quilts:
