October Meeting Recap | Quilt Con Charity Quilt Sew + Elections

Our October meeting was devoted time for sewing our Quilt Con Charity Quilt. We also held nominations for our 2019 officer elections, and voting will take place via email and our private groups, so members can look for that link and vote now through Oct. 31!

For our Quilt Con Charity Quilt, we have joined with other Tennessee MQG's to use the book The Quilts of Tennessee as inspiration, as the Tennessee State Museum will have an exhibit on it during QuiltCon 2019! The new State Museum is close to the QuiltCon venue, so if you're attending, please check out the exhibit as well!
