MMQG February Meeting Recap

Our February Meeting was well attended and very sweet too!  Anja was so thoughtful to bring a birthday cake so we could all share in VP Jennifer's birthday and Jennifer treated us all to her amazing double chocolate caramel salty goodness double delicious homemade cupcakes.
I had too much chocolate on my hands to take a photo!  But believe me, they were a hit!

Adrienne, our President, couldn't be with us (missed you) so Jennifer took the reins and conducted our meeting. Great job Jenn!

First order of business,   Choose a charity that will be the recipient of our group quilt(s)

We heard from three presenters and by ballot, the charity of choice was chosen
   The Lodge that Gives in Halifax - for cancer patients and their families.  

We collected a number of HSTs that will be made into quilts for the donation.  

Our program for the evening was a very informative talk on photographing quilts.  The talk was given by professional photographer, Lyndsay Doyle.    Click on her name to check out her website.

Here are a few shots of Show and Share time and a look at what our Members are creating these days.  
Cathy S. received her pouch from the swap with the Victoria Modern Guild 












                           
We had a bit of extra time to socialize and just talk quilting.  A great time was had by all and we were  very happy to have a guest quilter from Switzerland join us and participate in our Show and Share.
Thanks again to Chris for hosting our meetings in  her lovely shop,  Patch Halifax ,

Hope you can join us for our next Sew-In Day.
