Congratulations MMQG PE !



Successful launch of the MMQG on Prince Edward Island




Twelve awesome quilters attended our information night on Thursday June 11, 2015 in Stratford with people attending from all three counties of the Island.  A super fantastic turnout!


Heather Jarmyn, MMQG PE leader provided an overview of the purpose of the guild, modern quilting and about the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild.  We held a discussion on potential guild activities with quilt / block examples to share.


We also talked about dates for meetings and will alternate between Charlottetown and Summerside areas. We ended the meeting with a show and tell and the draws for fat quarters and a pattern.  


Winners from the draws include: Liz, Betty, Lucinda, Jean M, Jean C, Dawn, Leigh Anne and Viola!  Congratulations!


A special thank you to Susan, who brought quilts, books and magazines to display as well as treats!


It was a successful night and we are looking forward to our first sew-in planned for July 11th with the location to be confirmed.  The next meeting will be held on July 30th at 7 p.m. in the West Royalty Community Room, Sobeys  at 39 Babineau Avenue, Charlottetown!  Watch this space and stay tuned for future dates and details.  

Here are a few photos of creations made by those in attendance and we are looking forward to all the quilty goodness in the future. Enjoy!
