Happy International Quilting Weekend!

March 21 happens to be International Quilting Day. Our SMQG meeting was held on Sunday the 22nd and so we declared the celebration to be a weekend…. And brought cake! Who doesn’t love a little rainbow flying geese to celebrate this great Art?! 

  

We kicked off our meeting by sharing the progress on the travelling quilts. Jaclyn created this improv pebble to add to Carly’s “pebbles on the beach” quilt. 

  

Sonya made some adorable shamrocks to add to Jaclyn’s seasonal themed quilt.

  

Lisa made log cabins for Sonya’s citrus sangria quilt.

  

Heather created these cute little houses for Julie’s neighbourhood quilt.

  

Show and tell was very colourful with ladies showing their rainbow mini swap items.

   

     

Nicole could enter her latest quilt top in the Michael Miller fabric challenge! 

  

Patti has been busy pattern testing. Love these pieces! 

   

 

Sonya has started not one, but 2 of the Pile of Fabric Skill Builder BOM quilts!  

   

Catherine is practicing her paper piecing. Can’t wait to see this one completed! (I have a weakness for rainbow geese!)

   

   

Lisa shared a lovely mini that she made for a swap and the bag that she made to take to Quilt Con! The bag literally does have a place for everything – just like its name!  

   

Our next meeting will be Sunday April 26th, 2:00pm at the Saskatoon Field House. We look forward to seeing you there! And don’t forget your show and tell and completed challenge pieces. We want to see what masterpieces you’ve made with the orphaned fat quarters.
