March Updates

Here's What CAMQG Has Been Up To!

There was a great turnout at the 2014 Gathering of the Guilds event at the end of February! Our members demonstrated improv pieceing and showed of some spectacular examples of member's modern quilts.

What's Coming up?
  • Meeting: Tuesday, March 18th
Members chose the Bottled Rainbows Quilt for our next group sewing project at our last meeting! If you haven't seen one before, check out the original version by Rachel from Stitched in Colors . Careful, you will most certainly be drooling over the rainbow goodness once you head over to the quilt along page!!

Members who would like to participate should bring a small sandwich bag of scraps to our March 18th meeting. If you are spending anytime with your stash or scraps this weekend, here's a chance to scrap bust! It's kind of like spring cleaning, but this is way more fun :) Rachel has a great set of tips to pick good scraps here. We will do a quick sort by color at the meeting then send everyone home with some yummy scraps and the coordinating Kona solid. There the magic begins, everyone will work on their blocks and bring them back to the April meeting.

This is a great way to try a new technique without committing to big project. Bonus: the final quilt will go to a special organization or charity in the Capital Area.  Awesome, right?

  • Sewing Day: Saturday, March 29th (tentative date) Open sew days are a perfect time to make progress on WIPs and finish those UFOs.

Happy Quilting!
