The first meeting of the Barn Quilting Club was held on July the 8th. We started off the meeting by sanding down our squares and painting them with primer. While we waited for them to dry, we were shown 3×3 and 4×4 quilt designs and learned the history of barn quilts. We chose which design we were going to do and what colours we would be using. We finished our meeting selecting this year’s executive from among the four remaining members: President Emma Hess, Vice President Emily Velthuis, Secretary Erika Mathers and this Press Reporter.
