At the meeting three groups participated in the “One Yard Challenge.” About seven women were in each group, with a “brown group,” a “blue group,” and a “black and white group.” Each woman had one yard of her chosen fabric, and tore it in half, kept half, and handed the other piece to the next woman. This was repeated until each member of the group had a piece of each of the fabrics. The challenge will be to use all of the pieces in a project; it is okay to add in other fabrics.

Suzanne showed two short videos from Leahday.com of Leah showing her husband how to machine quilt. These were especially appreciated by the newer quilters in our group.

Gretchen won the fat quarter exchange, black and white pieces, which will go well with her challenge fabrics since she was in the black and white group for the challenge. Neela won the block of the month drawing.

The July meeting is the last one for the first half of the year. We take a break in August, and we expect to return in August, full of plans and brand new quilts for the Kenya Quilt Guild Exhibition to be held at Sarit Centre, October 3-5!
