Augusta MQG members have been busy!   July's meeting started off as usual with business---budget, membership, charity, and such---then we got down to the quilty stuff.

Lynn did more research on improv quilts as we continue to figure out how to best tackle the guild QuiltCon entry.  She showed us some examples from a book by Sherri Lynn Wood.   Heather inspired us with stack of prints she ordered in the colors appointed by the MQG.  The theme "The Garden City" was chosen as our inspiration, so now the volunteer committee will meet and determine the best way to proceed.

Our BOM is rolling right along.  Several members brought the blocks they pieced from last month's presentations and Kara held a little drawing for quilt block charm among those who completed blocks.  Diane and Meg presented the next two blocks in our series.  (Did you miss the meeting?  Check the members' blog for instructions!)

The Raffle Blocks are rolling in; we nearly have enough blocks for three winners!  These blocks are going to make gorgeous quilts!

The Show-and-Tell portion of July's meeting was full of incredible quilts made by our talented members.

Terri took Lynn's doll making class and created this magical being.  Both Lynn and Terri are clearly talented artists.

Tori showed off this eye-catching top made with bright solids and bold prints.  The movement in the quilt is fabulous.

Next up, Hilary presented a mini quilt that she made for an Instagram swap.  She adjusted a Bonnie and Camille pattern to get the little umbrellas.  Her partner is lucky!

 A while back Diane showed us fabric she received to use in a Riley Blake Challenge.  This month she shared what she did with it.  Good luck, Diane!

Mary Ann made this beauty with a pattern provided by the MQG in their monthly free pattern program.  She calls it Killian's Fleet after a favorite pirate.

The back

Kara displayed a striking bargello quilt that she made.  She used a borderless finishing technique that really highlights the flowing design.

Finally, Hilary revealed her Cotton and Steel X Plus quilt.  She used every C&S line through Black and White and finished right before their next release.
Another beautiful quilt back!
