July 2019

Happy Independence Day!!! 

This month’s meeting will take placeon Saturday, July 13th at 9:30 a.m. in the lower 
hall at St.Joseph’s Church.  We look forward to Colette presenting a demonstration on 
one of the newest quilting trends, Ruler Quilting.

Also, we will be finishing our Block of the Month presentations with Marilyn showing
us the center medallion and Cindy showing us the borders. 

Of course, our favorite time is Sew and Tell where our collective creativity shines 
through, and we will enjoy snacks brought by Helen. 

You can bring your last block of the month to share, (Joyful Journey), your quilt of 
valor block if finished (not due till Sept.), and any charity quilts you have finished. 

On another note, we are taking reservations and $25.00 deposits for our bus trip to 
Santa Clara to the Pacific International Quilt Festival on Saturday, October 19th. 

The totalcost of the bus and a ticket is $65.00. We will attend all day and stop for 
dinner on the way home. We only have 5 seats left so if you’re interested, you need to send the deposit to Charlotte Hickman at PO Box 1933, Mariposa CA 95338. 

The trip is open to SMQA members also.


Your Blockhead,
