Our next Zoom Sew - In is Saturday, July 1st at 10 a.m. The link is in Groupworks Events. 

A highlight of the June meeting was seeing the first ever SMQG community quilt made in 2014. It's a great example of scale, negative space, and improv piecing as mentioned in the The Principles of Modern Quilts June program. To see all the June Show and Tell click here or on 2023 tab.
