Colour by Andrea

Today, our very talented guild member, Andrea Tsang Jackson, taught an informative class on colour theory.

Ten MMQG members enjoyed learning and making blocks.  Here's a few examples of the blocks that they created with their newfound colour design skill.  














































A fun day was had by all. Great big thanks to Andrea for a wonderful class.

MMQG October Sew-in Recap

Our October Sew-in has come and gone.  The weather was miserable with lots of rain and wind but still a great turnout of members excited to spend the day sewing.  Just a few photos to share this time.

MMQG October Meeting - Recap


Another fabulous MMQG monthly meeting happened this past Thursday evening, attended by 30 happy quilters!  Seriously, the room was abuzz with conversation and laughter until our Prez, Adrienne, brought the meeting to order with a short business meeting.  After that, it was time for our in-guild Fat Eighths Swap.  Sorry, no pics to share of the swap but rest assured there was lots of oohing and aahing.  Then it was on to our program for the evening.  No Sew Christmas Ornaments with member Crystal.  She gave a very indepth tutorial on how to make these awesome ornaments.  We think Crystal may have a whole treeful of Blue Jays ornaments ready for Christmas! Thanks, Crystal, everyone enjoyed your program. And thanks, as well, to Shelly for taking all the photos for the evening.  She is a wizard with a selfie stick!








Then we came to the favourite part of our meetings....SHOW AND SHARE!!

   
































































A fabulous showing from our members.  Then in conclusion, a group selfie , taken by Shelly, a Sox superfan, to show how we supported her having lost a bet and had to wear a Blue Jays hoodie for a whole day, 24 terrible hours!   



A wonderful, friendful meeting!  MMQGers always have a great time.  Our November meeting will be held on Nov. 10.  Our next Sew-In will be held on October 22.  Get in touch if you need details.
