January Show and Tell

Leave a comment

Happy 2020 and welcome to another year of fun, friendship and creativity within the Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild. Our plans this year include a workshop weekend with Jenny Haynes of Papper Sax Sten in the UK in March, an inaugural Mini Quilt Challenge, our annual Quilt Display at the Brisbane Stitches and Craft Show in June, a swap, and a retreat. And all of these things will happen in the next six months.

At our January Sew Day we welcomed two visitors, and welcomed three new members to our Guild. Below is a gallery of the amazing show and tell brought along and shared by our members.
