November Meeting- Destash!

*Please see bottom of post for December meeting info, you don’t want to miss out! We have 2 swaps, a handmade ornament swap within our guild, and a Travel themed swap with the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild, more info will be sent by email shortly as well, and you can see the info about swaps above under the “Swaps & Challenges” tab, including the signup form for the Travel theme swap if you haven’t already filled one in and sent it to Amy.

What a fantastic meeting! We had a big turnout this month for our Destash meeting! And holy cr*p- what a huge pile of destash goodies! Amazing, fun, hilarious, and an awesome way to share our destashed *stuff* with other quilters. I heard several “I’m not going to take anything home with me” ‘s but it never works out that way does it, there’s always something you can find in such a great pile of treasures! I mean really, check it out!

The “before” pile, everything ready to be dumped on the tables,

and after, everything spread out and ready to be reclaimed!

This month we also finished up our Kona Modern Quilts challenge quilts with fabric so kindly supplied to us by Robert Kaufman, and wow! What a great show of amazing quilts and projects!  I don’t know if I could pick a favorite, there were so many creative and inspiring uses of the fabrics, check out the slide show below to see them all together.
