MMQG March 2017 Sew In - A (belated) Recap

We've been "sew" busy with #mmqgretreat2017 (our Epic Retreat) and all the packing, sewing, laughing, winning, and packing again - this March Sew In Recap is a little late.

However - Let's just let the quilty goodness speak for itself. Enjoy!

Julie has a very lucky little niece, who will have a matching sassy apron for herself and her dolly!

This sweet Michael Miller plaid will feature in two identical quilts for Karens grandson, who has bunkbeds!

Linda has been hand quilting this beauty for about 8 years. Check out those teeny nine patches!

A rare and welcome appearance from sweet Margo! And - Shelley's adorable featherweight.

Jennifer was hard at work, assembling the Fancy Forest. What an awesome pattern - and a huge undertaking as a third ever quilt. The linen, the intricacy of all the animals... Jen has a lucky niece too!

There was a meeting of the Sew Together Bags, great discussion on the method and place to attach the zipper ensued.

Margo brought this red beauty to visit.

And the new print on the ironing pad didn't disappoint! Cherries and vintage ladies!

The Fancy Forest, getting a final press before basting.

Brenda had a lot of print excitement on her table - all cut and ready to go.

We had a bit of a Fan Girl moment - Carolyn Friedlander commented on this picture on Instagram and we were all like the heart eyes emoji. Which, would have been great if  it could post here... :)

Next up on the blog will be a series of posts recapping our INCREDIBLE retreat at White Point Beach Resort on our gorgeous South Shore of Nova Scotia.
