Well, we’ve had our last meeting for the summer! I hope everyone had an amazing time at the meeting. Wasn’t Irene MacWilliam’s talk such an inspiration?
We started the meeting announcing the Summer Challenge: Nametags! We’d love to be welcoming to new members and to be able to know everyone’s names!
Be sure to check out our Pinterest page for inspiration for your nametag. Click on the photo to take you to the board.
We also passed out a special “Southern Branch of the Irish Patchwork Society” tag to include on your nametag. If you weren’t able to get to the meeting and would like to participate, please send an email to corkips AT gmail DOT com. From there, Erin will give you an address to send a self addressed stamped envelope so you can be sent a tag.
The Block of the Month was announced as well, the X-Plus Block!
We’ll be continuing this project over the summer, posting the instructions here on the blog. Be on the lookout in the beginning of July and August.
Irene MacWilliam also gave a retrospective on her work, and brought along samples to share. Here’s a slideshow of some of the works she brought along to show:
Our Show and Tell was also inspiring! Just look at all these projects!
Our next meeting will be September 12th, but keep watching the blog. We’ve got a lot of content planned to give you your patchwork fix! Have a great Summer!
