We really have some talented quilters in this Guild. Check out the adorable bears.
Mario Mulea has organized a wonderful quilt a long for our members or anyone on our mailing list. Blocks are based on traditional or long published blocks and use foundation paper piecing method for construction.
Check out our Instagram page and the #limqgqal hashtag to see all the wonderful results!
Hope you enjoy our Show & Share. Who said neckties are only for work, they can be fun too ;)!
All the bright colors of summer and represented in our Show & Share from our June 2020 meeting! The lovely colors are sure to put a smile on you face.
The first meeting of 2020 started the year off in a new location, the Mid-Island Y JCC in Plainview, NY. Members certainly got the year off with a bang, with show and share and a demo by Roberta of Oh Sew Sally! Thank you Roberta!
We certainly showed 2019 out with a bang! Members brought in their entries for the "Challenging Fabric Challenge" and wow, what results! Just as a reminder the rules were:
Minimum size : 18" x 18"
You must use at least 1/4" yard of the challenge fabric.
Any design can be used, but if you are not using an original design, please credit the designer.
You may use as many additional fabrics as needed to complete the top.
We had folks pull inspiration from children's books, fashion icons, and more. Check the results out below!
We also had some fun show and shares, including an Art Basel star special appearance! :)
Just a reminder, our next meeting will be at the Mid Island Y JCC, on January 15th, at 7pm.
New Place and Time! Mark your calendars!

Lots of lovely Show & Share this month! From Scandi-inspired Christmas presents, to charity quilts in a lovely orange hue, and one project from way back in the day that made it's way from the unfinished pile. Carol Krottendorfer also did a great presentation on Manx style quilting. I was so busy learning I didn't grab any photos of that one!
