Happy winter Baltimore MQG! The February meeting was our charity sewing month for Comfort Cases. In a matter of 3 hours our guild was able to really knock out some amazing quilts. Our participants were able to piece, iron, assemble, baste, quilt, and bind all in one day. A HUGE thank you to Kathy S. for precutting the fabrics and organizing the event. Each group had a theme and captain to help things run smoothly. The final result of quilts will be presented at the March meeting on the 8th. Scroll down to see a few pictures of this fun day.
            Our next meeting on March 8th (see below for details) we will reveal those fun “word” quilts everyone has been working on. If you have not started, no worries. You can make it small and simple or big and extravagant. Everyone loves the different presentations of skill, ideas, and creativity.
