July

It was a busy weekend for the TMQG!  On Saturday a bunch of us made the trip to Black Creek Pioneer Village to see the outdoor quilt show Quilts at the Creek, which was hosted by the York Heritage Quilters Guild.  (Another post will be coming soon to show off our quilts!)

Then on Sunday we met for our monthly meeting.  It was another small group this month (no surprise there), but there were some fabulous quilts!

Rebecca was first up for show and tell, and she had two beautiful quilts with her.  The first is a quilt for her daughter, and I can’t decide what side I like best, the front or the back!

The other quilt she brought was a quilt she made for her father.  Again, the back is as gorgeous as the front.

Rebecca quilted both of these quilts herself by renting some time on a long-arm machine, and she did a fabulous job.

Next, Kaye showed off her project in the brand new Pretty In Patchwork book! (You can read a bit more about it over on her blog.)  It was fun to see the project in person and in the book at the same time!

Finally, Doris showed us the blocks she’s submitting to the QuiltCon Block Challenge.  They’re both great, but I love the second one especially.

And then we just sat and chatted and stitched for a bit, and decided that we would do a scrap swap / mystery project at the next meeting.  So bring along a small bag of usable scraps to the next meeting, and then we’ll swap them around and all make something little with them.  Then at our november meeting we’ll use the things we’ve made for a mini gift swap.  I think it will be lots of fun!

Our next meeting is August 26th, 2012.  We hope to see you there!

  1. All of the show and tell is gorgeous! Rebecca's quilts are lovely and they go together quite nicely as well. How cool to see Kaye's project and the published book side by side! Doris's second QuiltCon block is great, looking forward to seeing it featured on the MQG site.
