2019 got off to a great start with our first meeting of the new year! Some great show and share from our members, including an adorable and touching baby quilt that remembers a firefighter Grandpa, a bag entered into a Moda challenge and Mario's mini that was included in the Curated Quilts Magazine. Congrats Mario!
Mario also explained the challenge for the Eastern LI Quilt Guild show. Remember, entries will be voted on in the May meeting, Hoping to see lots of great interpretations of the beauty of Long Island!
We unfortunately had to some technical difficulties, so Kim Soper's lecture will be rescheduled for a later date.
The last part of the meeting was the swap for our Fabric Swap Challenge. I can't wait to see what the groups of fabrics become!
We've got another gorgeous quilt this year! Below are some images of the assembly of the quilt and as soon as the binding is on, we will share some pictures of the finished quilt before it heads to Quilt Con. Thank you to everyone who participated. Many hands make light work, even when the theme is "Tiny Piecing"!
Our December meeting featured a delicious spread for a holiday party, a fun fabric craft from Carol Krottendorfer, and a Show and Share packed with beautiful items from our members! Mario showed his quilt "Discombobulated" that has been accepted for 2019 QuiltCon. We also got our new LIMQG tote bags, ready to rep the guild in the new year!
