London Modern Quilt Guild :: April Meeting

I recently found out about the London Modern Quilt Guild – I had looked for something similar a year or two ago when the original MQG was set up, but there wasn’t anything UK-based at the time. So I was really excited about joining when I found out about the group, which first met in January this year.

The challenge for this month was to make a wonky block – and this is my contribution – lots of bright cheerful colours! It was really nice to see everyone’s versions – as well as their WIPs – it was inspiring.

Aneela Hoey also came as a surprise guest – I enjoyed learning more about the design process and the challenges of quilting in a family home. I’m also now tempted to go and get some of her ‘A Walk in the Woods’ and ‘Little Apples’ collections, so cute :)

A burger from B98 made a perfect (albeit delayed!) lunch and then there was just time for some paper piecing from Danielle and a browse in Tricolette before it was time to go home.

In other news, my Tova is coming along very nicely, and should be finished soon. The Nani iro fabric is beautiful and soft, perfect for summer.
