October Guild Meeting

Our October meeting was bursting at the seams as usual! Petra was able to catch a few photos of the crowd, so many friendly faces! :) 

Susan sharing announcements. 

Everyone shared their beautiful & innovative use of stripes and chevrons for our Michael Miller challenge. Such an impressive showcase of amazingness! Thanks of giving us this unique challenge, Michael Miller! A few of these projects are on their way to Quilt Market, too! 

Also, we've seen these before, but it's fun to see them all together! We will have a poll on this blog soon, asking everyone to vote for which quilt should be entered in the QuiltCon collaborative quilt category. If you don't know what I'm talking about, click here for all the details! You don't want to miss the opportunity to submit your own quilt! 

Special Speaker: Angela Walters! 
We were so pleased to be able to share Angela Walters with MQX this weekend. She shared with us many of her stunning quilts and gave us pointers for our own quilts.
