April 2018 Workshop fun

We had a great time at the workshop!  Nancy P. did the morning session with a wonderful quilted notebook cover – her own pattern!  It is available on Craftsy.com (in case you missed the workshop).  Donna L. led the afternoon session making a fun and useful project bag.

Lots of fun sewing with friends old and new.  Many projects were completed at the workshop or were just needing one final step to be completely finished.  Sometimes, a fun, quick project is just what you need!

Hello Modern Quilters,

April is all about binding.  This is the last installment of our modern mini challenge education series and we’ll be exploring different techniques for binding and facing a quilt.  Your minis are due at the May meeting.

I love a good mystery, don’t you? Nancy Powell will be presenting the first set of directions for the BNMQG Mystery Quilt that she has designed.  This is always fun and I hope you’ll join in!
