March Meeting Recap - Presentations

This month we were pleased to have a few of our very own PMQG members present us with their blocks, books and fabric!

First though, Elizabeth Hartman gave us a wonderful recap of QuiltCon and it was truly amazing to see many of the beautiful quilts in the show and how much hard work went into putting it all together! We learned that there were 6400 in attendance from 5 continents, 10 countries, 6 canadian provinces, 47 states and 80 Modern Quilt Guilds. Can't wait for the next one in 2015!

Monica from Happy Zombie was the creator of our March BOM that she named Around the Rosie! You can see the tutorial she put together for us on her blog here. You can also find more information on our BOM tab here on the blog.

Here is Monica showing the magazine her block was published in.

Mo Bedell shared her new fabric line Full Moon Lagoon along with some lovely projects she made using it.

 

The colors are so bright, summery and cheerful. It was a real treat hearing her story of what inspired this line! You can see more pictures on her blog, Lime Gardenias.

We also welcomed Heather Bostic of House of A La Mode to share her recently published book, Pillow Pop! Her book had amazing pillow after pillow that would make a lovely addition to any home. 
Thank You ladies for sharing your 'creative babies' with us!!
