March 2017 Meeting Minutes

March 2017 Mtl MQG Meeting Minutes
Tuesday March 21, 2017 at 7pm at CRCS St-Zotique
  • Anyone interested in any of the executive positions?  If anyone is interested in the future, please don't be shy to approach us.
  • Quilts for Quebec: 
    • We have at least enough for 40 finished quilts so far, still waiting on QuiltCon box and a few other quilt tops and finished quilts from other guilds. 
    • Due to larger than expected turnout, we may end up spending all donations received on batting and backing, but if anything is leftover we will be donating it to the mosque along with the quilts.  
    • Next steps: we need volunteers to sew together remaining quilt tops. 
    • We will be doing basting at the April 1st sew-in and possibly plan another meet-up to finish. 
    • We will also need volunteers to quilt (does not have to be fancy or complex!)  
    • Josée will design labels and we will get them printed on Spoonflower.
  • The annual survey was sent out this week.  Please fill it out by the April meeting.
  • CQA slab blocks are due at the April meeting.
  • Social meet up for March: 
    • We would like to organize a group visit to the McCord Museum to see the Expo 67 Exhibit.  
    • Vote on the date you prefer on (Email sent)
  • Mad About Patchwork bundle raffle:  Jessica won the bundle
  • Room for meetings: for next year, we might be renting one of the bigger rooms downstairs (we think it's $10 per month)
  • Charity Quilts: we are thinking about not participating in the Quiltcon charity next year. No objection from the members. Instead, we would like to do a skill builder BOM and perhaps use some of the blocks to make quilts for charity. More details to come soon!
