Meeting #10 -- June 11th, 2011

Hello Modern Quilters,

Ever since the Solids Only Challenge was revealed in January of this year, I've been loving all the sneak peeks and dying to see the finished quilts.  Well, June is finally here and the quilts will all be revealed...aren't you excited?

If seeing 40-something unique quilts made by our members isn't enough, let me tell you...this month's meeting is jam-packed with awesome-ness.  See you all there!

Time: 9:30am-Noon
Location: St. Louis County Library -Oakbend Branch

**Updated:  Please note that there is ALOT of construction going on this weekend.  I think the Poplar Street Bridge has lane restrictions, Hwy 270 @ I-44 has construction, etc.  Please make sure that you plan your trip accordingly.**
