February meeting CANCELLED

Due to the incoming snow this evening through tomorrow, our February guild meeting will be cancelled tonight. Our next meeting will be Tuesday, March 8th, with the same exciting events to experience that we were planning for this evening!

Use this extra time to make something for the the Valentine Swap if you haven't already, finish your bee block if you were running behind or start making some blocks for the Patchwork City guild quilt-a-long.

We'll see you in March! Stay warm (with quilts) and safe.

CJMQG Cloud 9 Challenge Display at Hillsborough Library

Stop by the Hillsborough Library during the month of February to view our Cloud 9 Challenge display!

Last year we were given samples of Cloud 9 Cirrus Solid fabrics and tasked with making a 15" mini quilt using only the solids from their collection.

The results gave us another opportunity to showcase the amazing talent that the members of our guild possess. I am always in awe of how each member of our group can be given the same instructions and yet create uniquely diverse quilts.

Fifteen quilts from this challenge are currently on display made by the following:

Teddi Munslow
Linda Schultz
Kim Rotter
Janneke ​V​an ​d​er Ree
Lori Saporito
Kathleen Stanish (2)
Krishma Patel
Jessica Skultety
Susan Flick
Helen B​ranch
Lynn Pilquist
​Neva​ Asinari​
Lee​ Burnham​
Jam​ee ​Pemberton​

Note that two of the quilts made for this challenge by Laura Bennett and Jessica Levitt were accepted to Quiltcon 2016 and are currently in Pasadena, CA. Stay tuned for a future post of their minis as well as the other CJMQG quilts that went to Quiltcon this year!

Also, our award winning (Quiltcon 2015 3rd Place Group Quilt) guild banner is also on display!
