August Meeting 2016

August 10, 2016
The Barn in Mariemont
Co-Presidents Janine Keaton and Ellen Berninger presiding


We held the QUILT OLYMPICS!   There were five "sports" and whichever team completed the sport heats the fastest won!

First up! Toss a rolled fat quarter into the bin! 

Then! Thread a needle the fastest!

Then rip out a seam! Do it neatly! 

Unspool a spool of thread the quickest! 

Finally, dig through a pile of scraps to find a particular piece of fabric!

Dig, dig, dig!

And the winners! They were crowned the QUILT OLYMPICS CHAMPIONS with beautiful gold awards. 

Logo refresh! 

We asked Guild members to design a new version of our logo, using new colors. 16 designs were submitted and members voted at the meeting for their favorite. We will be digitizing the logo so that we can use it to print stickers, badges, banners, etc. etc. 

Runner up was this color scheme from Holly.

The winner! This color scheme from Carol!
