President’s Message

Greetings, fellow quilters!  With the weather we’ve had the last few days, it looks like fall could be just around the corner!  Where did this year go!!?? Time flies when you’re having fun, and the IEMQG has plenty of fun to offer!

The Vina de Lestonnac Retreat is just around the corner in November – fall in wine country is beautiful! Can’t wait!  Berene introduced us to a fun swap project at our last meeting.  Laura is asking for a few more people to join in – looks like fun!  Then, several of us are participating in the QuiltCon Group Challenge blocks – we’ll be laying out the blocks and putting it together at the retreat in November.  It was a super simple string technique triangle with fabric provided – easy peasy!  The Churn Dash /Alternate Grid Challenge is due the Wednesday before the October meeting – I’m having some trouble with this one – anyone else??  Tune into the next Zoom Sit and Sew to get some direction on this, if you need it.  Our next Meet and Eat is at the Casa Blanca Library on September 18th in their outside  area. The time has been changed to hopefully beat the heat – 9am – 1pm.  The address is 2985 Madison St. in Riverside.

Whew! No wonder time is flying by!  We are busy, busy, busy!  I know I have a lot of my own projects thrown in there – there’s always a UFO lurking in the background wanting some attention!

I hear several people are attending QuiltCon – February 16 – 20, 2022 in Phoenix. Some have signed up for classes already – I’m sure it’s not too late to make plans to go!

FYI – We’re hoping to be meeting in person for our December 4th meeting – stay tuned  for updates and location.

I pray you’re all staying safe and healthy and keeping busy at your sewing machine!

Until next time!
