So Cal SAQA Member News

Southern Cal SAQA member Melanie McFarland has been busy! She just  co-authored a new book with Mary Lou Weidman released just yesterday.  It's titled, "Out of the Box With Easy Blocks."  Melanie relates "It has simple projects for the beginner, and more elaborate piecing techniques, for established quilters looking for advanced ideas".  Check out the wonderful, whimsical cover for the book.  Way to go Melanie!  

Also busy doing what she does best is Mildred Reynolds. While you're in Long Beach at IQF at the Convention center late July, check out some of Mildred's wall quilts that will be on display in the Landmark Bldg window starting this Friday,  July 15th thru August.   Landmark Square is located at 111 West Ocean Blvd. Long Beach, Ca.  The window is on the back of the bldg on First St. between Pacific Ave. and Pine Ave. opposite the Blue Line Station.

Remember So Cal and So Nevada Members, if you have creative updates that you would like to have published through the blog like Melanie and Mildred, please let Mary and I know so we can get the word out in a post.  Sharing success updates is high on our list of priorities.  Hope to see you all in Long Beach during IQF.  Mary Tabar and Sandra Hankins
