November and December Meeting Highlights

Here we are approaching the end of 2013!   It has been  a wonderful year for the Jax Modern Quilt Guild, we continue to grow and hopefully 2014 will be a better year yet.

We had twelve members and visitors for the November meeting at Country Crossroads and everyone came armed with beautiful show and tell.

Robin brought a completed quilt for Boston that she pieced and her friend quilted.

Once our show and tell was concluded. We attempted the “Fold It – Snip It – Rip It – Drop It – Pass It” Challenge and after the second try we triumphed and each went home with six pieces that we are to use to make something ( with only adding one solid color of our choice) and bring it to the February meeting. That concluded our November meeting.

And to be1501158_10202899023821804_1752211890_o festive for the December meeting, we decided to meet for breakfast at Metro Diner. Candi, Lynn, Lisa, Robin and Mary attended. We had a great time and the ornament exchange was fun. We each brought an ornament wrapped in a FQ, assigned a number to each gift and we each drew a number. Miraculously, no one drew the number of their ornament so we were all happy campers:) I think we were all too hungry that we forgot to take pictures of the actual ornament, opps. Take my word for it, they were nice!

Don’t forget we meet on the third Saturday of the month at 10:30 am at Country Crossroads in Orange Park. Looking forward to see you there.

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and an awesome 2014 to one and all.
