May 2017 Meeting Recap

This month we combined our monthly meeting with an all day sewing retreat.

At our meeting we recognized the members of our guild who had quilts in the Three Rivers Quilt Show and those that won ribbons. They can be found here.

Entries for the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza (PNQE) show in Philadelphia must be sent in by June 3, 2017. Details here.

All guild members are encouraged to participate in the Modern Solids Challenge. We are to make a 24" square mini quilt using all solids in the colors of our logo. These minis will hang in the PNQE show as a display together. Please bring your completed mini to the June meeting! You can find progress photos on Instagram at #pghmqgmsc and what I'm seeing so far is impressive! (Check out our new page on this website to read up on all current and past guild challenges going on!)

The Modern Quilt Guild has announced the next Charity Quilt Challenge guidelines. The theme is modern-traditionalism. Brainstorm some ideas for our next quilt and submit your ideas via e-mail to the guild. We'll decide on an idea at our June meeting.

Our next meeting will be Sunday June 4 from 1-4pm at The Pittsburgh Project. Amanda will be speaking about how modern quilters use social media to connect, find inspiration, and share their work.
