While the Modern Quilt Guild’s event #quiltcon was taking place in Pasadena, Melbourne MQG celebrated #quiltnon2016 by holding our Sit and Sew Day.
We got off with a great start with these sweet treats:
Members are working on all kinds of projects.
Kristy is chain-piecing with gusto:
Louise is working on some cute envelope blocks, with Liberty fabrics no less:
Cathy M took on the challenge to sew a block of her house, floating in outer space:
Andrea P is oh-so-patiently sewing together some gorgeous selvedges:
Dawn is working on hexies:
Members participating in Project 48 showed off their blocks again:
First time visitor Sharni was putting together this wonderful orange peel/flying geese mashup:
Another first time visitor Jane was doing some seriously skillful piecing:
And Show and Tell involved a lot of showing and telling.
Recent improv convert Cherry showed off her improv log cabin made of shirtings:

First time visitor Sharni gave us a mini trunk show of some of her recent work, which was pretty stunning:
Our next Sit and Sew Day is SOLD OUT and for those lucky enough to have their golden ticket, our guest speaker will be Jennifer from A Piece of Cloth who will give a trunk show and talk about using vintage fabrics in modern quilting.
