We were also treated to an interesting and informative presentation by re-elected TMQG President Helen Stubbings entitled "What is Modern Quilting?"

We have exciting things planned this year for the TMQG, so if you were unable to attend the AGM but would like to become a committee member, please contact us at tassiemqg@gmail.com

In other news, our Show and Tell was a colourful affair with members showing off their finished "Prism Quilts".



These fabulous Prism Quilts will be on display in the TMQG booth at the Craft and Quilt Fair, Launceston from Friday 10th - Sunday 12th July.
Visitors to our booth will have the opportunity to vote for a "People's Choice" from this wonderful array of modern mini's!

The winning ticket for our stunning "Aerial" raffle quilt will also be drawn on Sunday at the Fair.
Profits from this quilt will be donated to the sewing program at the Women's Prison.
A reminder please that if you haven't yet returned your raffle tickets and money, please do so as soon as possible. They can be dropped in to Frangipani Fabrics by Wednesday or you can bring them to our booth at the Fair.



Our committee members have been working incredibly hard to ensure that TMQG's debut at this show will be a success.
We hope that some of you will be able to attend this exciting annual event and stop by the TMQG booth to say hello!


Here are a few photos of wonderful quilts made by our talented members from July's Show and Tell













Our next meeting will be held at 6pm on the 5th of August at the Buckingham Rowing Club, upstairs in the function room.
We hope you can join us!
