Olivia and Nikki called the meeting to order and welcomed the new members and guests.
Treasurer’s Report [Katey]
Katey provided the treasurer’s report. We will not be posting the accounts balances online. However, any member is welcome to ask for the information and it will be provided at each meeting. We have 37 paid members so far for the year. Enough profit for about Our merch sales including Zazzle and magnets/stickers/ buttons have created a small profit so far, equivalent to having 2 extra paid members.
Social Events [Olivia]
We are planning a secret Santa style mini quilt swap with the West Atlanta MQG. May 9th is the last day to sign up. Swap partners will be coming out in the next couple of weeks from Olivia. The quilts are due back at the October meeting. WAMQG will be joining our October meeting for the exchange! Use the information from your partner’s questionnaire to make a Mini Quilt (18 inches-ish).

Program- Sandy Teepen
Sandy is a quilter from here in Atlanta who has an amazing use of color in her vibrant quilts. I am sure I spied a lot of Kaffe fabrics in her work. She also had some very inspiring use of novelty prints. Picture above shows how she used a vintage quilt block and created a new quilt. She also showed us the quilt she created with a group including our own Jenny Hynes for Quiltcon this year.
