September 2011 PMQG Meeting

After (what felt like VERY LONG) a summer hiatus, the Philly Modern Quilt Guild has started up again for our 2011-2012 year! At the first meeting of the fall on September 20, we elected new officers, swapped some pin cushions, and enjoyed some show-and-tell followed by general socializing. We were also lucky enough to have Jessica Levitt, author of the new quilting book called Modern Mix, bring a suitcase full of the wonderful projects from her book!  It was a long summer and we're all excited to be meeting again!

The new officers for the 2011-2012 guild year are:

President - Andrew J
Vice President (until Feb. 2012) - Becky M.
Vice President (after Feb. 2012) - Anna Z.
Treasurer - Cathy F.
Secretary - Michelle K.

Event Committee Chair/Coordinator - Janet P.
Website/blog Committee Chair/Coordinator - Monica C.
Meeting Space Liaison - Candi W.

Here are some photos from our pin cushion swap. Everyone did an amazing job, but unfortunately the photos don't do their work justice because everything was pretty tiny!  Head on over to the Flickr set to see larger versions of the photos.

Now time for some show and tell!

  1. That last quilt is beautiful! I am planning to do something similar on a king size quilt. I will be using my block of the month blocks in the space where your circles are. This inspires me to get to work!
