You've Come a Long Way, BMQG!

Did you know the BMQG was originally founded as the NEMQG on April 3, 2010 by the fabulous Monet?  Just one of the fun facts I uncovered applying for membership to the MQG:-)  It's hard to believe how far we've come since then!  We've grown to almost 50 members, have participated in numerous swaps, challenges and charity drives, and are now getting ready for our second exhibit for the Lowell Quilt Festival.  Along the way we've made new friends, learned new quilting techniques and had a whole lot of fun!

This Saturday our July meeting will focus on getting ready for the Lowell Quilt Festival.  We will have a demonstration of how to attach your sleeve for hanging.  Feel free to bring your machine and fabric to work on this during the meeting.  

Sewing labels on quilts #bostonmqg #quiltsforboston 
I will also be bringing the 27 incredible finished quilts for Boston that need labels.  A HUGE thank you to the amazing Tina for designing these labels on Spoonflower and more thanks to totally awesome Caitlin of Salty Oat.  Caitlin isn't even a BMQG member but she works at Spoonflower and not only donated 2 yards of these labels but she personally shipped them to us so we could get them in time for our sew-in.  A few of the quilts also need to have their binding tacked for anyone looking to relax with a bit of hand sewing.

As always, there will be show and tell.  Everyone is invited to participate and share what you've been up to.


  1. Yes, we certainly have come a long way! It's been a fun ride thus far.

  3. Yes, I did know that! However, I was never able to make it to a meeting back then. I am glad I've found it now. It certainly has come a long way thanks to all the wonderful members!
