June 8, 2021 BCQG meeting

We had several members, new and old, in attendance as well as others who joined us from home via Zoom.  We had one guest, who we hope becomes a member soon.  This was our last Zoom meeting for members.  All future meetings will now be in person.  YEAH!!!

Our teacher for this meeting was Heather Kojan of HeatherKojanQuilts.  She gave us an hour-long lecture on “Five Easy Steps to Designing Your Own Quilts.”  She covered steps that included Inspiration, Design, Composition, Math and Education, explain each step and providing examples.
