PMQG June meeting

Our June meeting was action packed, because we were all very excited for our upcoming special event with Denyse Schmidt!

Plus our June challenge was to create a quilt that was inspired by Denyse, her patterns and/or her fabric!

The results were amazing!

And we all had a wonderful time exploring Denyse's modern style.

You can read more about her artistic style here.

NEW LOCATION for PMQG meeting Tuesday, June 19th

 Hi Philly Quilters!

 This is a reminder that our next guild meeting  (June 19th) will be at our NEW location!

If you would like to be a guest at this meeting, please contact the guild officers to request the new meeting location.

At the meeting, please remember to bring your challenge project. We'll also be having another great spotlight on one of our members!

Also, if everyone has a favorite tutorial for making either half-square triangles or flying geese, please bring that with you or be prepared to describe the method.

Finally, please feel free to bring a project for our regular brainstorming sessions - if you need help deciding how to quilt your project, or what fabric to use, etc. just bring it in and ask for advice! We'll finish the meeting with general show & tell too.

Can't wait to see you there!
