April Meeting Photos


There was no shortage of show n tell at April's meeting.

First up is Jennifer's quilt with great straight line stitching. She took a mystery quilt class and came out with this great kid's quilt.

 Next, Lucinda has used Jennifer's pattern for the start of a couple of baby quilts that feature Ed Emberly's elephant print.

  Katie -- our Illinois member was able to be with us in person this month... and she brought three items:
  these baby burp cloths are for Katie's daughter Ashley, also a NWOhio MQG member.

Cheryl brought this great quilt featuring one focus print and lots of solid. Looks great!

For March's meeting we did a zipper pouch swap, and Mary Lee made another zipper pouch.  She also brought a quilt where she followed the pattern... something she rarely does -- follow a pattern, I mean.


And finally, these quilt blocks are made of sticky foam board
  It's amazing how quiet the room became as each person worked on their own quilt block. Great creative activity - thanks Alice!

Next month's meeting is Thursday, May 15 at the First United Methodist Church on Wooster, in Bowling Green. We gather any time after 6:00 pm and officially start the meeting at 6:30pm - 8:00pm. See you then!

December 2013 Meeting Notes

Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013

PRESENT: Lucinda, Cheryl, Jenn, Carol, Mary Lee, Katie, Ashley, Michele

The group met for the holiday meeting at Panera’s in Bowling Green at 12:00.

Lucinda announced that a Sew-In will be held at the Perrysburg Library on Jan. 5 or Jan. 12. She continues to look for other meeting place options.

CLUB DUES ARE DUE IN JANUARY. $25 per member. Cheryl noted that we paid $10 to renew our online domain name.

The Riley Blake Challenge was reviewed: The rules to the challenge as outlined by Riley Blake: Any size, any item as long as it is quilted, use just challenge and other Riley Blake fabrics, any solids. You do not need to use all six fabrics.

Guidelines added by our group include: minimum size 8x12”, you do need to use all six fabrics but they don’t all have to be on the front (can use on the back, no size requirement).

RB deadline: February 17, 2014
NWOMQG deadline: February meeting

Homework assignment: For the January meetings, members are to make a sewn/quilted nametag. Also for the January meeting, Cheryl will demonstrate how to make a Magic Pillow case.

· Ashley shared her Heather Ross baby quilt and announced that she will be having a baby!
· Katie displayed the quilted bag she made and the king-sized quilt that her husband picked the design and the colors for (which greatly impressed all of us!
· Mary Lee showed pillow-tops she made for her grandchildren and a mini quilt she made from “15 Minutes of Play”
· Jenn shared her embroidered and framed “To Do” list and the colored-pencil roll-ups she made on commission
· Cheryl had a mini improv quilt to show
· Lucinda showed her new Marcia Dursey fabrics and items from Sew to Speak.

The members then had their Christmas exchange of three fat quarters wrapped together, and an “unloved” fat quarter, which involved much stealing of fabrics back and forth. The guild will meet next on Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014 at Grounds for Thought in Bowling Green.

Respectfully submitted,
