Iceberg Sightings (pictured) was featured in the Winter 2019 issue of Canadian Quilter Magazine
“Icebergs were often nestled in the calm waters of the bays we trekked – quiet and stoic reminders of the cold and windy coastal winters. Spotting one was always a great reason to pause for a snack as we watched them rock back and forth or traced their paths down the coast.”
Cristina De Miranda – Zoom Lecture
Thru-Quilting: My Journey Thru Modern Quilting
Tuesday, March 22, 2022
6:00 pm CST via Zoom
Guest tickets are available for $10
This trunk show will showcase quilts designed by Cristina De Miranda of Ships & Violins. The journey begins with a look at her improvised patchwork pillow covers inspired by a thru-hike of the East Coast Trail, and continues through her designs as a burgeoning modern quilt pattern designer. The show will include details about her inspiration, her approach to design, and how pursuing a creative business is not so different from a long walk in the woods.

Modern Mystery Quilt Challenge
January 2022 – January 2023
The Modern Mystery Quilt Challenge will focus on characteristics of modern quilts and will provide the opportunity for members to build their modern designing and quilting skills along the way. Participants will have a monthly modern “block” to complete, post progress, be eligible for monthly prizes and a grand prize at the end of the challenge. BNMQG members can join at anytime during the challenge but will only be eligible for monthly prizes when they complete the monthly “unit” by the deadline and must catchup and complete the entire challenge to be eligible for the grand prize.
“Units” will have directions, resources, deadlines, and many have videos. Participants will choose their own color palettes and have the ability to decide how big their final quilt will be. Mystery Mondays will be available for participants via zoom for participants to see live demos, ask questions, and sew with other participants. A private Facebook group will be available for challenge participants but it is not mandatory. Contact Nancy P. for questions regarding the challenge.
