November and December 2023


KMQG met on Saturday November 18, 2023

Charity Quilts

We saw three charity quilts in various states of completion made with blocks constructed by members.  

The polka dot star quilt has been completed - pieced, assembled, quilted, and bound.

Sandy and Elizabeth used surplus polka dot star blocks to construct a second quilt top which will now go for quilting - watch this space for the completed quilt.

Another quilt which we saw as a completed top last month has been quilted and has now gone for binding - look out for a picture of that when it's all finished.

November Show & Tell

As usual, an inspiring and very varied collection of members' projects.

Melissa with an example of Improvisation, which was the element of Modern Quilting that we discussed at this meeting

Melissa also showed a great example of using up 'orphan' blocks to make a wall hanging

We met on Saturday December 9th.  This meeting included our Holiday Party, where we had a mug rug swap with members taking home a beautiful mug rug made by another member.  We also held our election of officers for 2024.
