I'm presenting at next month's meeting of my local quilt guild @capitaldistrictmqg, so I'm spending the next hour working on my project sample. The project takes longer than that, but inspiration has finally struck! (Thanks, @sewameliasgarden!) It's a little math & science geekery in quilt form with added hand embroidery. 😉 #quilting#quiltblock#pi#sewing#sample#modernquiltguild#hoopquilt
Did you know @latifahsaafirstudios is teaching her Molehills pattern on Saturday at #gatherhere ? Work on curves, immerse yourself in color, stitch with others... link to sign up is in our profile. 📸by Latifah Saafir: engineer, quilter, co-founder of the #modernquiltguild
I pushed my introverted self out the door and went to the first meeting of the Winnipeg Modern Quilt Guild. I don't do a ton of quilting these days, but am still pretty excited to be a part of this now that it's happening in our city. I met some cool new people, got to see some Instagram stitchers in real life and even ran into an old friend from Girl Guide camp! Time to plan my next quilt 😁 @winnipegmqg #winnipegmodernquiltguild#winnipegmqg#modernquiltguild
Devil's Claw block done! My quilt is based on a 2"x2" grid so I had make some adjustments, ended up with a 16" block instead of a 12". The 4"x4" square in a square was a pain in my @$$! 😡 aside from that it was easy-peasy😊
8 blocks done so far, next up I'll need to find some 10" blocks. Hope to have the top done by the end of the month.

Very excited to be awarded 3rd place in the Bed Quilt category at the Great Northern Quilt Show in Harrogate this weekend 🎉 This is a finished #sewcialbeesampler quilt @sharonhollanddesigns @maureencracknell
I just spent the last four days at the most adorable wood beach cabin, filled to the brim with vintage 70's textiles, with some of my best buds 🌊💦🐋 While they wrote some new songs for their band, I happily sat and listened while immersing myself in new embroidery design ideas. I already miss aimlessly roaming around that weird little seaside town, going to the arcade, cooking with friends, and waking up to the sight of the beach but I'm also REALLY excited to get to work on these new designs and I'm feeling more energized than I've felt in a long time 💖✨#WIP
Calling Scottish quilters! Anyone interested in a West of Scotland MQG group? If so contact @poppypoochie. What about you @fionapoppymakes, aren't you out that way?

The best part of #theMQG 's response is the line, "It has come to our attention..." I wonder who did that...? SAY MY NAME, #MQG ! If this came from anyone but the authors of the "Derivative" article it MIGHT be forgivable. But given the circumstances, no. It is ironic, ridiculous, and hilarious. And they should be very embarrassed. Why this was sent to only guild leadership, I'm not sure; I guess transparency is one more thing your membership dues won't get you.
I know what I'm doing tonight! Another great resource you have instant access to if your a member of the #modernquiltguild there's even more fun if your part of the #winnipegmqg#Repost @themqg (@get_repost)

Feeling kinda drained and uninspired this week (maybe because Nazis are marching in the streets and white supremacists are mowing people down and our president won't condemn their actions 😥). So, I decided to work on a tedious 3" triangle design for the back of an old quilt top I never finished✨ Monotony feels good every now and then 💖 #WIP
Do you think #themqg would have anywhere near the membership they do if you could only join as an individual, and quilters in local guilds weren't forced into it? They need to get out of the business of trying to own guilds they have nothing to do with and stick to #quiltcon ! ☆Keep sending your tales of #mqg discontent and guild election news to #theQWOLmailbag ! ☆(Is that a #glamclam quilt in the background? I guess you could say that, but this #modernquilt pattern went by a different name in 1820!)
This quilt from #modernquiltguild is by Maritza Soto. It's called Go North. I need to share more quilt images from FoQ which was so busy and fun. I think this is an odd thank you to all you brilliant, inspiring souls, grateful to be able to meet so many remarkable women at #festivalofquilts2017 ❤️🦄😍💥🌸❤️(much❤️️)
