MMQG NOVEMBER MEETING RECAP


Our November Meeting was held on Thursday, Nov. 12
 @ Patch Halifax.  It was attended by 19 members and 6 guests. That makes 25 happy, excited quilters altogether and because it was MMQG's Second Birthday, there were lots of treats to enjoy and memories to share. 

Our meeting started with the presentation of a quilt to Chris, the owner of Patch Halifax.  The quilt was a group effort by guild members and was given as a thank you for all the support that Chris has given our guild over the past year.  The blocks were sewn by guild members and then Adrienne designed a layout, sewed it into a top and completed the quilting and binding. It is an amazing quilt! We know there will be some major snuggling under this quilt.






Then it was time for our pillow swap. 7 guild members participated



















After the business meeting portion of our meeting concluded, it was on to our program.  Adrienne showed us how she makes her fabulous QAYG Christmas stockings.  You can go to her blog here to find her tutorial so you can make some too.  



Then it was on to the eye candy portion of our meeting...Show and Share.    (Not all the photos taken turned out well enough to post sorry)

A fun time was had by all, as usual.  Hope you can join us next time.  Just get in touch for all the info.maritimemqg@gmail.com Love to see what you are working on.

  1. Wow! Chris is going to have to expand her shop if your membership grows any larger! Wish I could have been there when you presented her with her beautiful quilt! I'll just bet she was over the moon! The pillows turned out great! No doubt there were seven happy participants. Everyone has been keeping extra busy. Loved all the work showcased at show and tell. Such diversity. A great post to read with my morning coffee. Makes me want to jump right up and get to work! XO
