We need your vote!

Happy Thursday Everyone! I hope you're getting lots of quilting accomplished during this crummy week of rain! Here's a couple of projects that you could work on:

  • If you've signed up for the VMQG pouch swap, please bring your pouch to this month's meeting on June 21st. 
  • If you have any leftover Michael Miller Cotton Couture fabric left from the previous challenge. Feel free to make an improv block of any size. We will continue to collect these and make a quilt for charity. 
Also, don't forget that we have an All Day Sew at Fabric Depot on June 2nd from 9am to 9pm. At last week's meeting we asked members if anyone would like to teach a skill/block idea at the All Day Sew, would anyone be willing to lead a little skill share at June's All Day Sew? If so, email

Finally, as we are in the process of finishing the two quilts from the MM Cotton Couture challenge. We need your help. Each of these quilts will be shown at a quilt show: one at the Sisters Outdoor Show, the other one at Pacific Northwest Quilt Show. I've put up a poll on the sidebar of the blog (it's on the very top of the sidebar to your right, when viewing the site), please vote for which quilt you think should be shown first at Sisters. 

Improv Quilt (to be sashed with tangerine)

Linear Quilt (to be sashed with fog)

Poll will remain open until May 31, place your votes now! :) 


  1. Can I vote that it not be sashed? Sashing takes away from the awesome juxtaposition of the improv. When budded up right next to each other it almost creates a continuation of the block—which is an awesome visual. IMO sashing isn't very modern. :)

    1. For the improv quilt we were thinking of doing a really loose improv kind of sashing not a traditional style but we can definitely talk about it.

  2. I love the 'improv' quilt. Lots of movement and techniques used.

  3. I agree with the previous comment. No sashing!!!
