January Sew Day

Our January Sew Day had to be our biggest yet! There were so many new faces and an array of beautiful quilts and other projects shared during show and tell.

A big warm welcome to all of our new members and visitors. We’re all looking forward to another fantastic year ahead.

We held our AGM and were very excited to learn of the upcoming Modern Quilt Show which we’ll be presenting in May, we’re so proud to share our love of Modern Quilting and hope to see a big turn out.

Just a quick reminder that due to the show being scheduled for the first weekend in May (it’s traditional timing) we’ve move the Charity Sew Day also scheduled for that weekend forward to be held on Saturday 5th April 9am-4pm.

The Modern Quilt Guild Riley Blake Challenge has come to it’s official close and we’ve seen some great quilted projects at our January & February sew days. We’d love to see more finishes over the coming months, the challenges are always a hit and everyone comments on learning a lot from them, even if the fabrics aren’t their favourite.

Amoungst some beautiful quilts we also saw Kerrie’s quilted pillow and Jess H’s quilt-as-you-go bag.

The next fabric challenge has just been announced with Michael Miller Fabrics as sponsors. This time the fabrics come from the new range Petal Pinwheels. Don’t be shy, have a go at the next challenge, the fabrics are provided free to members and are a great way to try out something new.
