HMQG Meeting Wrap Up | March

Thank you to those who joined us for our monthly meeting yesterday. We missed those who couldn't attend. We are looking forward to more exciting meetings, demos, and charity sew-ins this year, and we hope to see you soon!

We officially donated our Seaside Village Charity Quilt to MD Anderson Cancer Center for their Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project. For more information on how to create and donate a quilt for this project, visit their website. Some other highlight's from our meeting include:

  • We still have space for you to join us at the retreat. See details on the retreat page.

  • This year's Quiltcon was a wonderful networking and learning opportunity to no mention the amazing quilts that were on display. Be sure to check out the MQG for photos of all the winning quilts.

  • Our Charity Sew-In was a success. Thanks to everyone who returned blocks and stayed for the sew-in - two partial tops were assembled and enough scrappy string HSTs made for another full top! You can see some of the quilts in the photos. And thank you to those who took quilt kits or quilts to long arm. You are a productive and generous group! For the April meeting, please return your completed HST blocks (so we can complete the quilt tops), as well as any donations of twin or full size batting. Thanks in advance.

  • Don't forget to join us for our Mystery Quilt this year. Section 1 directions are available to download here!
