August meeting, so long farewell

So long farewell to our usual meeting place. The amazing Mybearpawcraft shop, there are times it hits me that we are sitting in the wonderful Jo Averys shop surrounded by her incredible class samplers ... Pretty cool!

But we are a popular bunch and other want to join and there are only so many quilters we can fit in. So being an amenable bunch we looked for new premises and are going to try out Cluny church hall. Come back next month for a report on how that is working out. We were a select few for this months meeting, holidays etc. But it's quality not quantity you know šŸ˜¬  Cathleen who'd off her bee blocks, love the colour palette, again a simple block but uber effective.  
Audrey was first up on show and tell with this! Sooper fab drunkards path block with bias appliqué.   
Audrey made these amazing little minis based on memories from her trip, how inventive, and what a super reminder of a great holiday.
I love our ladies soooo much, there is never any posing for blog pics, just oodles of excitement! Here is Margaret showing us I kat fabric bought on her recent Balinese trip. Fascinating hearing how it was made, stunning fabric too.
 Honestly how fab is this?? Sooper fab? Yep I lovely Lesley made this quilt for pulse, I agree love is all you need and there is plenty of love at the Edinburgh modern quilt guild. 
Small but perfectly formed, the lovely Janice entered these Liberty lovelies into a local show and won, well deserved Janice.
 I think the look on Robins face says it all, doesn't this encapsulate how we all feel about our hobby? Lovely sew together bag as well Robin. It's a present for a friends mother, that's a lovely present!
Let's get serious here for a minute super secret stuff being talked about, but you won't tell anyone will you?
Ann's husband was on a recent trip to Japan and brought her back some gorgeous kimono fabric, with here usual sense of style Ann turns it into a quilty masterpiece!
Whoops! What you doing here you are out of sequence?! Never mind, more lovely Ikat fabric from Margaret.
Aww next up is this dreamy fairy tale quilt, now who would make this but our very own 
Long arm princess Tatyana šŸ˜ŠšŸ˜Š 
What a gorgeous block Cathleen! And for such a good cause, Jo is collecting blocks for a Maggies Centre quilt, this will do nicely šŸ˜ŠšŸ˜Š
Another quilt for pulse?? Don't let me ever hear anyone saying scots are mean! It's gorgeous too.
Deary me! The pictures are hopping about today, here is the inside Of Robins sew together bag.
Scottie dogs!! And how cute is this fpp Scottie dog by Barbara! Sooper awesome paper piecing skills! And lovely colours too.
So as far as guild meetings go I don't know when we will be back to Jos shop šŸ˜¢šŸ˜¢šŸ˜¢šŸ˜¢šŸ˜¢ but we will now be able to hopefully accommodate more members šŸ˜ŠšŸ˜ŠšŸ˜Š and we know we will always find an excuse to go back and visit Mybearpawcraft (hint - she sells amazing fabric šŸ˜‰šŸ˜‰šŸ˜‰)
 See you in September
