London Modern Quilt Guild

This morning I braved the snow and freezing cold and set off for my first meeting of the London Modern Quilt Guild. It was such a great meeting, well worth getting out of bed at 7:30am on a Sunday to attend. We all brought quilts for a show and tell and "ugly" fat quarters for a fat quarter swap. I came away with an Amy Butler Amaranth FQ in an orange colourway which was none too ugly and is just the right colours for my 4x5 bee members.

The show and tell was really inspirational. Such a lot of talent in the room it was awesome. I snapped away while chatting so I apologise for the quality of the pics but I really wanted to show how great the work was.
 Ruth's beautiful Amy Butler quilt

Amy's great plaid quilt

Michael's awesome london
underground quilt

Sydney's pretty quilt featuring gorgeous embroidery

Charlotte's fabulous oakshott cotton free cut quilt

Colette's pretty hand quilted cushion cover

Danielle's paper pieced quilt - yes really! Can you believe she paper pieced this whole thing???? I'm in awe.

It was such a great meeting, I'm so looking forward to the next one. I hope it's ok for me to post these pics here. I'm not quite sure of the blogging ettiquette here but if anyone is unhappy with their quilt picture being displayed just email me and I'll remove it.

Happy Quilting!
