After a short business meeting, we got straight to our program for the evening. MMQG member, Dena, treated us to a presentation on the subject of paperpiecing. Dena is a whiz at paper piecing and we all learned her approach to the technique and some tips as well. Here are some of Dena's larger paper pieced quilts
This little mini was super cute
Then it was time to sing Happy Birthday to our President, Adrienne . I won't tell you how old she is but it rhymes with shorty! We all enjoyed a piece of cake and then settled back to enjoy Show and Share time. Unfortunately, a few of the photos didn't turn out very nice for posting, so apologies to some of the members whose quilts aren't included in this post.
