December 2019 Meeting / Christmas Party

Happy Holidays! Last week we had our December meeting and Christmas party! It was a smaller group and our Show and Tell was short but we still had fun, as always!

Jan Gates brought in this black, white, and yellow quilt she made for herself.

And Jessica made this cute fox makeup bag for her daughter. 

After Show and Tell I presented the January BOM, which is the Wonky Star. The tutorial I used by Wombat quilts is up on the blog and the BOM link can be found here.

Yummy snacks were brought in by each of the members and we had some time to enjoy them while catching up with one another. 

We'd each brought in a wrapped gift for a Yankee Gift Exchange. There were so many great gifts!

We then did our monthly raffle. Here were the winners:
I won 2 Windham fabric bundles and Jan Gates won a gift card for Primitive Gatherings.

We ended the night with two games of Left Right Center where we played with all red fat quarters. Maddelynn and Taylor were our winners!

And that's a wrap for our 2019 year! We'd love to see you all in the new year.
Our next meeting will be January 16, 2020, so come on out! :)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year from the Temecula Valley Modern Quilt Guild!

November 2019 Meetig

Hello quilters! At This last meeting we reinstated our current board members and elected Nancy Thomas as our President! Madelynn presented the November Block of the Month called the Maple Leaf. She found the tutorial on the Seasoned Homemaker blog post. You can find our BOM post here.

For this meeting we shared our favorite quilting tools. Jan's favorites are her design boards and  rotating cutting mats.

Nancy's favorite was a black light on her long arm sewing machine that she uses for finding white thread on white fabric.

Other favorites that were not shown were Madelynn's seam ripper and for Margaret it was adding a freeweight to the top of her long ruler to stabilize when cutting long strips and using a scrap fabric to start piecing.

New member Deby started us off with Show and Tell. She purchased this kit "Savernake Road" from Sewing Party in San Juan Capistrano.

She made this fun and scrappy quilt from leftover fabrics. The pattern is called "X's and O's".

This colorful quilt was a Mod TV quilt kit.

And this beauty was an applique kit purchased at Road to California.

I shared this Swoon Dallas Duffel bag I made for a friend. I used Tula Pink's De Le Luna line for the outer fabrics.

Margaret made this Christmas quilt for her nephew.

Nancy shared this quilt top that she pieced while in North Dakota on a retreat.

She also made this baby quilt. The pattern is "Through the Looking Glass" by Sew Emma.

Jan and Margaret brought in their completed charity quilt tops. Beautiful jobs, ladies! :)

We ended the meeting with our raffle. Here were the winners:
Nancy won the "Why We Quilt" book and pack of quilting notions and Margaret won some quilting stencils.

Upcoming reminders:

Our next meeting  will be on December 19th and it will be our Christmas Party! So please bring snacks to share. We will be doing a Yankee Gift Exchange. Bring a quilted item or quilt related item nicely wrapped. :)

We'll also play Left Right Center so bring 3 red fat quarters to play along.
Next Year's dues are now being collected. The first 12 to sign up will get a bottle of Flatter.
We hope you see you all in a few weeks!
