Digs Shopping Day!

Digs has been gracious enough to invite us to their shop on Feb 28th, from 5-8p to come and explore their new fabric lines! 10% of all fabric sales made during that time will be donated to the MMQG! Please come by and support us and of course get some new fabric while you are at it!


There will be a MMQG sew-in on Sunday, January 22nd.  Noon - 5 at the PennLake Library located at 8800 Penn Avenue South in Bloomington.  All are welcome for any amount of time you are able. Bring any type of project you would like to work on.  Charity tops will be available for layering and quilting if you are interested.  A demo of spray basting will be a part of the day.  Maybe even some free motion quilting!  See you there!

We have two charity sew-ins planned for the first part of 2017! Our dates will be Sunday, January 22nd and Sunday, March 19th. Both will be held at the PennLake Library in Bloomington on 8800 Penn Avenue South from Noon - 5pm.

We have been very busy gatherers and quilters!  Thank you to everyone for all the fabric and block donations, quilt kits taken home and worked on, batting scraps saved and brought to the meeting. There are now many blocks to be made into quilt tops, batting pieces sewn into full bats, completed tops ready to be layered with backs,  and even a quilt or two ready to be quilted. There is something for everyone no matter your favorite step! Many hands (and machines) can make the work go quickly.  Our stash of completed quilts is growing. Soon we will be making decisions of communities to receive our donated quilts!

Please join us at one or both of the charity sew-ins for whatever time works into your schedule!
