May Meeting

Susanne and Leigh had a great meeting today to start planning for the future of MMQG!  We've got lots of ideas, and we're going to jump right into the first one with our May meeting!

Our next meeting will be Monday, May 9 at 6:30pm in Room B at the Sequoya Branch of the Madison Public Library. Directions can be found here. We'll be kicking off our "Ugly Fabric Challenge!" Bring approximately 1/4 yard of the ugliest/strangest/"what was I thinking?" fabric in your stash. We'll put them all in a bag, everyone will pick a piece and create something with it for the next month's meeting! You don't have to use every inch of the "ugly" fabric, but it must be a focal fabric in your finished product. Finished items should be roughly 24" square or smaller- a doll quilt, pillow cover, table runner, etc. You'll have until the June meeting to finish your item!

Any questions, post them here!  Let your sewing friends know, we'd love to have a great turnout at this meeting!  Don't forget to follow us on Facebook and join our Flickr group, too! 


  1. sigh. once again, i have to work that night. :( is there any way i could participate in the challenge without being present at the meeting?

  2. The new blog looks great! Thanks for putting this together.

    I won't be able to make the May meeting because that will be my last class for the semester - yay! Cool challenge idea with the ugly fabric inspiration.
