OCMQG January Meeting Recap

Welcome 2016! 

Our first meeting of the year was held at Cecile’s Studio and was a rousing success. We had many members returning and new members sign up.  Check our flickr link for the amazing quilts our members are working on or have finished.

Thank you to JayBird Quilts and Elizabeth Hartman! for donating quilt patterns for our monthly raffle.
L to R: Shelly, Peggy, and Trudy

Make it Happen in 2016!

We asked our members what they set for their quilting goals for this year and this is what they said: 

1. Practice free motion quilting on a long arm machine
2. Start sewing again!
3. Finish at least one UFO per month before starting a new project
4. Quilt my stash

What are your goals for this year?
