The SBAMQG missed President Chelsea, who couldn’t make it to this week’s meeting, but we were in good hands with VP Pam Rocco. After welcoming eight new and returning visitors, we got down to introductions and a group discussion about our exciting February of quilt shows. We talked about the fabulous QuiltCon West 2016 in Pasadena and a terrific local show that our guild was invited to participate in. More about those events will come in a later blog post but, for now, I can say that the comments shared by our attendees were unanimously positive. At QuiltCon, people were impressed with the quality of programs, instructors, and quilts in the exhibits. And, locally, we were just happy to talk about modern quilting with anyone who would listen.
Treasurer Gabrielle Robles announced that Pam’s 1/4-log cabin workshop in April has filled. We are looking forward to a great time learning Pam’s tricks and secrets for amazing improv piecing with precut strips and it will be so fun to see what our talented guild members come up with – all using “the power of Pam!”
Here, Pam shows off a few more samples of her 1/4-log cabin pattern. This is going to be good!
Snacks were delicious and door prizes were fab. A thank-you goes out to Hart’s for continuing to host the SBAMQG for our monthly meetings. We love you!
A few treasures from Sew and Tell:
We had seen Gene’s Bars/Extreme Values quilt before but…
tonight we got to see the back. Isn’t that awesome?
Gene has been busy with another beauty. Check out this triangles quilt and…
another amazing back. Look at that bird! Oh my goodness.
We got a double-shot of Pam’s new works.
Laura assembled a variety of collected blocks into a cohesive arrangement.
Tami, Mickey, and Tiffany shared their colorful minis.
And, Tami made sure bags were covered for the evening as well.

Great work this month! And it was super fun to see so many of you at QuiltCon 2016. I hope we can do it again in 2018!
