Whole lot of stitchin' goin' on recap

Joan's Modern Houses

I continue to be stunned and amazed at the creativity and enthusiasm of this group of quilting gals!  

We started off by taking care of some business--there is an updated Member's roster, we welcomed guests and got an update on our guild badges.

Pam's logo design and Debra's embroidery skills!

Gayle introduced a monthly block challenge and drawing based on the Minneapolis M

QG--and we are jazzed about it.  The first challenge is a Mod Mosiac and I will post more details later in the week.

Janet presented the February program--Chapter 6 of the Quilting Modern book--Log Cabin Makeover.  

Janet--our program leader for February

This was also part of our Madrona Road Challenge and the number of blocks created by our gals was overwhelming!

And the winners are:



We can't wait to see the completed quilts!  And there was still enough blocks to create a full size charity quilt.  Sounds like a Sew In day project...

Here is some of the  show and tell-

Janet's Tunnel Vision Sewing Machine Cover

Melody's Quilt As You Go Quilt

And if you were wondering about the guild's Logo Challenge, Sandi, Janet, Pam and I spent the afternoon at Sew Bee It working on the layout for the guild's banner.  Pam has spent a lot of time with all of the blocks and is becoming quite attached to them.  We are going to have some amazing banners!

Next month's program will be a recap of the trip to QuiltCon!  See you then!
