Meeting #12 - August 13th, 2011

Hello Modern Quilters,

This meeting is new in a few ways.  First, it's the official start of year #2 for the STLMQG.  Second, it's the first time we are meeting at our new home, the Kirkwood YMCA.  Finally, we have some changes coming (All Good, nobody freak out) that we are looking to implement to make the meetings, STLMQG Blog, Flickr even more interactive.

We have a Challenge Reveal, a swap you're going to love and new things to talk about.  So, mark your calendars, take note of the new meeting time, print off your map (if you need one) for our new location and join us.
Looking forward to seeing everyone !!
