January Sew Day

Happy new year from the Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild.

We started the new year with a huge sew day, we had 31 members attending the January sew day. It just so happened that day was 35oC in the shade, so everyone was getting some relief in our air conditioned room.

We have lots of great plans for the coming year, two retreats (summer and winter), six charity quilts, community sew days and quilt displays.

Here is our Predsident, Vice President and members going through our stash sorting out fabric for some of our charity quilts.

We also had an awesome show and share.

 

 

Our next sew day is February 19th.

September Sew Day

On Sunday 16 September the Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild (BMQG) meet at The Hub, Mt Ommaney for its monthly meeting.  The doors open at 10am for members to come together and sew.  We sew all day until 5pm, so members come and go as they wish.  There is a formal chat from President Fee at 1pm and show and tell at 3pm. The guild currently has 47 members.

This month was exciting because half the membership got name tags, which look fantastic.

In October the BMQG has a stand at the Brisbane Craft and Quilt Fair. So to decorate our stand we had a sew machine mat challenge.  Members were very enthusiastic and we got about 14 sew machine mats.    The requirements for the sew machine mats were 12″ x 24″ and we had to use the Modern Quilt Guild colours.  We had one member who didn’t like those requirements and made a very modern sew machine mat which was round.

Our meetings always end with show and tell.  below are some pictures of our very talented members.
