Ten PMQG members participated in the Charity Sew Day at Modern Domestic on Thursday, January 30. We made enough of these fun wonky stars to complete a top! (Never fear: there are more, and this isn't the actual layout.) Cath will finish the assembly and quilting, and then we'll give it to Camp Erin, which serves children who are grieving.
Do any of these blocks look familiar? Michelle brought in this top, which she assembled from some of last year's Block of the Month donations. Dramatic!
Michelle also recently pieced this lively top from some more donated blocks.
Meanwhile Gail spent the day sewing these tumblers from pre-cut material that was donated to the guild. The photo doesn't do it justice!
Pretty impressive! But what's more impressive is how much fun everyone had. Charity sewing is a great way to learn new skills, meet new people, and practice sewing in a low-pressure environment. We hope to see you at the next Charity Sew Day!
Modern Domestic is throwing what is sure to be another fabulous party this weekend! We were lucky enough to have Diane and Christina speak to us Thursday night at our picnic meeting about their new book, Quilting Happiness. Now join them for the launch party to celebrate!

Join us Sunday, August 25th at 2:30 for a little party and some really fun demos and activities with Diane Gilleland and Christina Lane. Find out more details over on their blogs! We are hanging the quilts from the book this week and they are going to create quite a backdrop for the party! There will be lemonade and treats and hopefully YOU!
Hi everyone, just wanted to share some cool things a couple of our fabulous guild sponsors are up to this month - just show your 2012 PMQG member card when you're checking out to get your discounts.
First, Pendleton Woolen Mill Store is having a fabulous sale on ALL of their wool fabric through September. Here are some of their new ombre plaids arranged in pretty FQ stacks - check out the lovely wool quilt our own Michelle Freedman made with them! We'd love to set up a special shopping day for members during the sale, so keep an eye on the blog for more details.
And Modern Domestic is hosting a Colette Patterns fall line release party - 20% off the new line, prizes and giveaways, and an extra chance to win if you're wearing an original Colette design. Sounds heavenly! Another chance to meet up with PMQG friends...
Hope to see you at both of them!
No sewing night at Modern Domestic on the first Saturday due to the Fourth of July.
Next meeting Thursday, July 25. Look for more details coming soon on the ning website events.
