July 2019 Meeting Recap

Hello South Bay Modern Quilters!


We had a lovely guild meeting in July with an exchange and lots of beautiful quilts.

We started with Karen’s tutorial on her “bubble” block which will be our next Block of the Every Other Month.


Beautiful, organic curves are the feature of this technique. The Palette and more information on this block can be found HERE.

Then, we had our notions exchange and so many beautiful things were made for our swap partners.

My cup runneth over. At the @sbamqg guild meeting tonight we had our notion swap. I had asked for a thread catcher and sewing station cover. @darlenetalukder went above and beyond in her fabric choice. In fact, after talking with her about my love of Indian prints and textiles, she reached into her stash and made for me a beautiful machine cover. This is all hand embroidered fabric from Bangladesh. I was completely overcome with emotion over Darlene’s generosity. I looked at all the tiny stitches that someone made over weeks or months and couldn’t believe that something this beautiful belonged to me. I’m humbled by the beauty of the work and by Darlene’s generosity in making this for me. My heart is so full. #sbamqg #showusyourmqg #quiltguildchangedmylife #quiltguild #embroidery
