Yup, we’re just a little excited about how our Paintchip Challenge turned out.

A bit late but better than never…here’s what is happening in the Seattle MQG world in June.

If you’ve been thinking about joining us and you’re interested in getting early QuiltCon West registration, please join by June 17. This date is earlier than the official MQG date but we want to get your membership up and running in plenty of time for you to access the MQG site and get familiar with it before registration.

And now, here’s what’s going on at the June meeting. Be sure to read to the end for pictures!

When: Wednesday, June 10, 7:00 pm. Social time starts at 6:30

  • Return of Northwest Folklife Festival exhibit quilts
  • SEAMQG quilt blocks are due, PLEASE bring your block back if you took a packet – email programs@seattlemodernquiltguild.com before the meeting if you need an address to mail it – it can go in a regular envelope because it’s small. Bring back the extra fabric, too

  1. Your exhibit is FABULOUS! Thanks for sharing. You are a major busy Guild. We are Ramping up for the third annual Bainbridge Quilt Festival September 12. Trust SMQG will be well represented in that Festival.

    We plan to join in the PNW event in August. Any way we can help??

    May we share our Raffle quilt with you again this year? I think we came to your July meeting last year. Also open to sharing at the August event.

    Let us know.

    All the best from BIMQG.

    • Hi, Kathy! Thank you. We’re excited about your Bainbridge Quilt Festival, too. It’s the same weekend as our fall retreat but I’m sure some members will come over and/or will enter quilts. We’ll socialize your show within our guild.
      For the raffle quilt, please contact president@seattlemodernquiltguild.com.
      We have seen several BIMQG members on the meet-up registration list. Yay! Please encourage your members to register. The first 125 registrants get a goodie bag and the early rate ends July 4. See you in August (or sooner)!
