April Meeting Recap

Hello PGHMQG Members! I hope everyone is well during these crazy times. Last week Leadership sent out the meeting slides that have an amazing presentation by Nikki and Missy on stripe fabrics, both how to make your own and working with fabric that is already striped! 

The financial report is the same as last month. 

Further cancelations are as follows:

  • 2020 Three Rivers Quilt Show
  • 2020 North Pittsburgh Guild Quilt Show
  • PGHMQG Spring Workshop with B 
    • Leadership hopes to reschedule for later this year.
  • PGHMQG Annual Retreat 
    • Leadership Hopes to reschedule this for Fall 2020.

Our current guild challenge is to create a quilt using stripes as a main focal point. There are no size or color restrictions! Finished quilts will be on exhibit at the PNQE Mancuso show in September. Quilts are due Sunday, June 7th.

Use hashtag #pghmqgstripechallenge when posting your progress. 

Also, use hashtags #pghmqg and #showusyourmqg

There is no May meeting BUT never fear! Courtney will be making a slideshow presentation and blog post on how to use Instagram and Hashtags to find further inspiration from fellow quilters and to help others find your quilts!

We would like to thank everyone for their patience in moving forward. We hope that everyone stays safe and if anyone has a question please let Leadership know.


Vivian has been hard at work on this paper-pieced 
string quilt from leftover scraps.

Katie is a mask making MACHINE! Amazing job!
(Fitted mask pattern by Craft Passion, pleated masks by the Turban Project)

Calling all Brimfield Awakening EPP Lovers! Zsofia made this awesome
hand-stitched a mini quilt for the yearly Brimfield Awakening Swap. 
Got to love that variegated thread!

Nikki is making some headway on her stripe challenge quilt! Also, she has finished this gorgeous minimal-color quilt. 
Just love the effect the black, gray, orange, and white have together!

This Freewheeling Single Girl quilt Aimee made 
makes me want to make one too!

Gail finished a strip-style memory quilt from sheets, backed 
with a textured minky,  a collage-style t-shirt quilt to be auctioned for 
St. Kilian parish school, and lastly, she finally finished the top for the "shattered" block of the month from the Quilting Needle. 

Sandy has been working to downsize her batik stash!
Trying to figure out what to do with these strips, couch quilt front, 
couch quilt back, last of the masks (I hope), cross-stitch bed quilt that
will be done in 1936!, beginning design of an unknown quilt. WOW!

Courtney took a break from hand sewing and make a improve quilt top
adding a Georgia EPP block for fun!
