We're at the Franciscan House in Maine for retreat this weekend, but our April meeting is coming up fast! We hope to see you on April 19th at 7pm. Here are some of the items we were will covering.
The Boston Modern Quilt Guild is hosting a quilt show at Fabric Place Basement through April 30th. The show is only staffed on the weekends, but you can go to see it Monday-Friday as well. This is a great excuse to see some beautiful quilts and do some fabric shopping.
NHMQG's first bee was a huge success. This bee was geared to members wishing to learn more about paper piecing. Michelle was our fearless leader taking the charge! We got together for a few hours on a Sunday afternoon for some sewing and snacks. For those experiencing quilting envy, we are planning more bees this year!
If you signed up to participate in a fabric swap those groups will be meeting beginning in April to swap their fabric. We're excited to see what everyone brings!
We are incredibly excited to announce that our quilt, Controlled Chaos, took home a blue ribbon at MXQ. More information about the recognition of this quilt will be coming soon to our blog!
We are so excited to be hosting Amy Garro in June. Cost for the event is $100/person and includes lunch. (Participants are also required to own a copy of Paper Pieced Modern. We will be placing an order for books in the spring.) If you plan on attending please bring your check to our April meeting.
If you ordered a NHMQG t-shirt they are being handed out at our April meeting!
We have three half-yards of Handcrafted Indigo from Alison Glass and four half-yards of Modern Background from Zen Chic. These beautiful fabrics could be yours, all for the cost of a few raffle tickets!
Our giveaway item this month is a great pattern from Meadow Mist Designs. What fabric would you use for this quilt?
