MMQG May meeting RECAP

This past Thursday, May 12, was our monthly meeting.  It was attended by 29 happy, excited quilters.  Our President, Adrienne was absent, so the meeting was called to order by Crystal, our swap coordinator.  After a welcome and hello to new faces, we started with our monthly swap of fussy cut blocks.  Those participating brought 10 fussy cut squares to exchange and our program for the evening was lead by Jeanette who shared how she made a few projects using fussy cut blocks. 





Next, Linda gave us all an account of the trunk show that she and Adrienne presented on behalf of our guild at the New Brunswick Gathering of the Guilds held in Moncton on April 23.   49 quilts and 5 pillows made by our members were shown at the very well attended trunk show.  A great big thank you goes out to all involved in helping make this happen.  

The excitement was building as it was then time for our blind swap with the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild.  The photos of these wonderful little quilts will be appearing in a separate post along with the minis that our guild members made and sent to FVMQG.  Stay tuned for that!

Then, our favourite part of the each meeting....SHOW AND SHARE....
