Teeny Weeny Swap

Thirteen of our members were lucky enough to fill some places in the Teeny Weeny Swap with the GWSMQG and Vancouver. Due Date is the Meeting day on the 16th so we can Express them on the Monday.

Greater Western Sydney Modern Quilt Guild

We are very excited here at GWSMQG to announce our collaboration with Vancouver MQG, and Brisbane MQG combining forces to take part in the Teeny Weeny Swap! This swap is only open to financial members of these guilds.

The ”Teeny Weeny” bit refers to the piecing, not the actual size of the finished item, which is obligatory in this swap. It can be paper-pieced, patchwork piecing, English paper pieced, improv pieced, which may then be hand-appliquéd, but it must be pieced in some way – machine appliqué is not permitted. The overall look and feel should be intricate, cute and “zakka-tastic.

One of our members Sheridan has made a mosaic  with links to the individual photos within the mosaic, should you feel inspired by these photos.

QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge!

The MQG is having a Guild Challenge is anyone interested?

The Modern Quilt Guild

We are thrilled to announce the QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge! This is one of the MQG’s largest-scale charity projects and we look forward to getting as many guilds as possible involved in the challenge.

The 2015 QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge is a bit different from the 2013 QuiltCon Block challenge. Please read carefully.

This year’s challenge requires participating Modern Quilt Guilds to work collaboratively to create completed quilts using a predetermined color palette and alternate grid work design. This can be accomplished by using blocks of different sizes, adding negative space, or in numerous other creative ways. We’ll have a series of blog posts about design and color for these quilts.

Week of August 18: Working with the Color Palette

Week of August 25: What is Alternate Grid Work and How to Use It

Leaders of all of the local MQGs will be sent a sign up link in…

Welcome to the Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild

Welcome all, to the Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild!

Our guild was formed in June 2014, and while we are a fledgling group we are gathering members everyday. It is so exciting to share our love of quilting with other ‘like minded’ people. One of the best things about the Brisbane Guild is that most of our members only met each other online before gathering as Brisbane MQG. We have linked together through blogs and Facebook and Instagram and now have made firm friends in real life. It is so exciting to see the guild grow with more like-minded quilty friends.

If you would like to find the official BrisMQG social pages you can simply type @brisbanemqg into your instagram, search for Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild Inc on Facebook or Pinterest, or check the About tab above and follow the Socialise and Contacts tab.

We hold sewing days at Mount Ommaney held on the 3rd Sunday each month, by becoming a member of the Brisbane MQG you can attend these events for free.

If you are not sure if this is the place for you then you are welcome to attend two sew days as a visitor ($6/visit) to try us out.

Guild members can also:
– participate in our online Sew-ins
– take part in our tips n tricks at meetings
– contribute to our community quilts
– participate in challenges and swaps
– attend workshops at a discounted rate
– take part in quilt-a-longs

not to mention get to know other quilters in Brisbane area and become a member of the International Modern Quilt Guild.

Before I sign off, I just want to say, once more, how thrilled I am that you have found the Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild and welcome. I cannot wait to sew with you.
