April Meeting: Ruler-rama

Get ready for the ruler-rama!!!  At our April meeting several awesome BostonMQG members will be demonstrating how to use some of the latest specialty rulers and giving you the low down on whether they're really worth the price tag.

Don't forget to bring your latest finish, WiP or anything else you'd like to share.  We LOVE to see what you've been up to:-)  Also, please bring your finished Quilts for Boston quilts.  We are wrapping up this amazing project and can't wait to send all of these fabulous quilts to their new homes!

The meeting is being hosted by the fabulous Fabric Place Basement on Saturday, April 12th from 1-3.  Snacks and guests are welcome.

Best Retreat Ever!!!

4 fabulous days at the Franciscan Guest House in Kennebunk, Maine.

2 awesome guilds.  It was such a treat to have the Seacoast MQG join us.

38 incredibly creative women.

99 projects worked on.

13 remarkable raffle prizes.

2 stunning winners in the retreat challenge.  The challenge was to create anything you wanted using your muslin swag bag.  Thank you Hawthorne Threads for the scrumptious scrap packs.

89 fantastic finishes.

764.75 yards of fabric bought at Marden's...  but how can you resist a $1.49 bargain bin stuffed with designer fabrics.  A huge thank you to Bonnie and the rest of the gang for enabling our fabric habits!!!

2004 yards of yarn from a rogue trip to KnitWit that I'm a little hurt I didn't get invited on.  Apparently some people go to quilt camp to knit;-)

1 phenomenal organizer!!!  The biggest thank you of all to Aimee for making this weekend totally amazing:-)

An uncountable number of friendships formed, good times, and bottles of wine.  This year's retreat was definitely our best so far!!!  Check out our Flickr group for even more photos.
