A Little Finish

Last night was the last meeting of the Montreal Modern Quilt Guild before the summer break. We had our annual pot-luck dinner, garage sale, show and tell and we had a zipper pouch swap.

I made my zipper pouch based on this tutorial.

I used a couple of Juggling Summer fat quarters by Zen Chic.

We don't assign partners, we just bring our item in a brown paper bag so everyone who makes one, also gets one. No disappointment!
I ended up picking the pouch made by Stephanie and I love it!

The colours are right up my alley!

Do you belong to a quilt guild? Do you like swaps? What other activities does your guild organise?

Linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts and My Quilt Infatuation this week!

Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. Hi. I'm in a guild in Brossard and we do community quilt for charity and community quilt to pay the rent (our meetings are in a seniors residence). We don't do project swaps, except mystery fat quarters swap. Your pouch looks great, so many storage space.

  3. Love the pouch you made. I may have to try that! I just joined the Madison Modern Quilt Guild. I have only been to one meeting due to other commitments but I do like it so far. We make charity quilts for the local children's hospital and I believe they have done quilts for QOV too. We do a block of the month swap where you make as many blocks as you like with the given pattern and color scheme and your name is put in a drawing for all of the blocks. Unless there are a lot of blocks then they draw more names and you share. I have not done this yet but will soon. Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Oh, swaps are so much fun!!! The bag you made and the one you chose are both nice! I like those boxy pouches for traveling. They can hold a lot! My local guild is actually quite far away from where I live, but my favorite meeting I ever went to was a huge "swap" where people just brought their unwanted fabric and scraps and they put it all out on about 5 huge tables and you could just pick whatever you wanted. I got a bunch of scraps of fabric not in my stash and someone got rid of a bunch of low volume prints which I've used a TON! I just wish I lived a little closer to DC (but not really!).
