Hello KCMQG Members!

Our meeting this month is just a week away!  We are back to our normal meeting date, time, and location this month, but make sure you check out the section in blue below for the changes to the September meeting.   

This month’s meeting is our Longarm Showcase.  We’ll be featuring our members who own longarm businesses on a panel to answer a lot of questions quilters have when considering hiring a longarmer to work on their projects.  After the panel, you’ll get to visit with our featured quilters and see any samples they may bring.  

The meeting location for the guild meeting held on September 10 has changed.  We will be meeting at the Hudson Auditorium at the Johnson County Community College.  This Auditorium is on the second floor of the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art.  The address for the museum is: 12345 College Boulevard, Overland Park, Kansas 66210.  


The theme of this year’s charity quilt project for QuiltCon 2016 is “Improv with Intent.”  If you’re interested in contributing to this project, make a strata to turn in at the October guild meeting.  The rules are:

  1. Pick one color as your focus.  Color choices are: white, off-white, sunflower, tomato red, light teal, grey, and black.  
  2. Create an improv strata with solids.
  3. Make sure color variations only include colors in our palette.
  4. Strata should be at least 12″x12″, but can be bigger.
  5. Specific details about the challenge from the Modern Quilt Guild can be found here.
