Our April meeting was full of information and great show and share from our members. Our president, Mario Mulea, gave a lecture on the origins and inspirations of the Modern Quilt movement, entitled "What Makes A Quilt Modern?" From Denyse Schmidt, to the quilters of Gees Bend, to the power of the internet for bringing groups from all across the world together, tracing the roots of the modern quilt movement was fascinating. He also shared a slide show of the winning quilts from QuiltCon 2019. With 3 quilts each placing in 20 some categories, that was a lot of beautiful and thoughtful quilts!
Lorraine shared a lovely table runner that will be a gift, Lynne and Suzy showed us their ribbon hauls from the Smithtown Stitchers quilt show, Cindy had a baby quilt with some lovely free-motion quilting and how she customized a promotional tote bag with a lucky haul of trim from Suffolk County ReStore. Maureen and Amy showed the results of recent classes they've taken and Maureen won some Machingers Gloves as our doorprize this month! Great work all and thanks for sharing!
