Mark your calendars! The Boise Modern Quilt Guild will be hosting our annual After-Holiday Party on January 23, from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday’s festivities will include treats, door prizes and our tote swap!
Please bring a treat to share with the group.
We are excited to see what kind of totes everyone has made for their swap partner! If you are participating in the tote swap, please bring your completed tote on Saturday to exchange.
Sew and Share
If you were lucky enough to receive a handmade sewn or quilted gift this holiday season, or have a completed project, please bring it on Saturday.
WiP’s & Wishes Challenge
This is your last chance to show us completed WiPs from your list for 2015. We will also announce the winner!
If you want to participate in the 2016 WiPs, just bring $10 and a list with 10 or fewer projects you want to complete this year. Half of the challenge money will go towards the guild; half of the money will be a jackpot prize at the end of the year. Completed projects must be shown at a guild meeting during the “show and share” portion of the meeting. Each completed project earns a ticket towards the jackpot prize. The jackpot prize will be drawn at the last guild meeting of 2016. Use this challenge as a motivator to finish your WiP’s or try something new!! Payment can be made via a check written to the Boise Modern Quilt Guild.
Block of the Month
January also marks the kick-off for our 2016 BOM: the Modern BOM by Alissa Haight Carlton. It was originally published on Sew Mama Sew from July 2011 to June 2012; however, the Boise Modern Quilt Guild is following along from January to December 2016. For the tutorial for the first block, visit our post Block of the Month – 2016. Can’t wait to see your block in February!
See you soon!
