Our association elected to not have a quorum. Our votes are all the majority of those present and voting. A quorum rule only causes the problems you are dealing with. In our association if you're not interested enough to show up you don't have a vote, unless you present a proxy ahead of the meeting.
I would seek to change your bylaws so that you can avoid the problem you cite.
